Peach Cream Pie

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

47 Comments

I recently went on a road trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas. One of my road trip rules is to find off-the-beaten-path places to eat.  I prefer to eat where the locals eat, since they often have the most unique, and tastiest, food.   Why eat at a chain place, or, even worse, a fast food window?  […]

“Success is sweet and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats.” — Amos Bronson Alcott I do not often discuss the struggles I go through testing and re-testing recipes because I am not sure how interesting my development process is to you all.  Some recipes come together with one try, but […]

Before we begin I have some exciting news!  My Beef Empinadas recipe was selected as a finalist in the Ro*Tel Across America contest!  Voting is open and you can vote for your favorite recipe here! I am a big fan of quiche.  If made properly it is the perfect balance of crust and eggy, cheesy […]

Zinfandel Braised Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Polenta

Monday, April 19, 2010

I am something of a comfort food junkie. I have discovered, over the last year, the delightful bliss that is polenta.  I have also discovered that I am passionately in love with chicken thighs.  So, when I was craving something rich, creamy, and comforting the other night I decided to take my two new comfort […]

Blueberry Lime Fromage Blanc Tart

Ahhh, fresh blueberries! One of the best parts of spring is the arrival in the markets of fresh, plump berries.  I always get the itch to make a tart or pie with fresh berries at this time of year, and while shopping I also sampled some excellent fromage blanc.  I decided instantly that they would […]

Butter Cut-Out Cookies

First, HAPPY SAINT PATRICK’S DAY!  Second, I need to apologize to you all. I realized this week, while making 15 dozen of these cookies that I have never shared the recipe with you.  I am a bad blog friend, but I plan to make amends today!  As with many of my recipes, this is a […]

Black and White Cream Pie

Ready for some new shenanigans?  How about we start with pie?    When I first started cooking I used to make something called “Oreo Pie”.  It was made with an Oreo crust, chocolate and vanilla instant pudding, and whipped topping.  It was easy, it tasted pretty good, and when sliced it looked fairly impressive.  That pie […]

Southern Banana Pudding

Nothing is quite like homemade, from scratch, banana pudding.    Sure, you can make a passable banana pudding with instant pudding mix, but if you really want to taste something special make your custard from scratch.  Once you do you will never use a box of pudding again.  Besides, taking about ten minutes to cook […]

Apple Carrot Maple Cakes with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting

Nothing makes me happier than when I can combine two things I love into one thing I really love! I love apple cake and I love carrot cake.  While looking at some apples in the market I noticed carrots on sale also, and inspiration struck!  Why not combine the two?  Tart apples, sweet carrots, warm spices, […]

Pecan Tassies (aka Pecan Pie Cookies)

I have a love affair with little pie shaped cookies. This time it is cookies that are in fact tiny pecan pies!  I adore them, with their little nubbly tops and their gooey centers.  These are lovely for dessert with a cup of coffee, make a lovely gift wrapped in a pretty bag, or are […]
