**UPATE** The winner, as selected by Random.org, was comment 14 – Brad!  Congrats to you! It is getting down to crunch time for Christmas and I know I have been getting some last moment gifts together for my friends and family. The folks at Omaha Steaks know how stressful this time of year can be […]

Butter Croissants

Ready for something a tad more advanced?  It takes time to make, but it is SO worth it. I fell in love with croissant making a few semesters ago in my Laminated Dough class.  Bread making is among my favorite things to do in the kitchen, but making laminated doughs (doughs with butter sandwiched between […]

Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie

Growing up we would go to Houston for Thanksgiving and spend it with my mom’s family. We would always have Thanksgiving dinner at my Aunt Ruby’s house, because she had the largest dining room, and the food was always spectacular. Of course, as a child all I was only interested in stuffing, rolls, macaroni and […]

Butterscotch Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce

I’ve discussed inspiration here a few times, and I admit mine comes from the strangest places. This bit of inspiration hit in my local grocery store’s rather dismal bakery section.  Let’s be honest, grocery store bakeries are bleak places stuffed with pre-fab cakes smothered with greasy icing, cookie pucks, and pies with what can best […]

Crunchy Baked Chicken with Orzo in White Wine Sauce

I love easy meals that look and taste like a million bucks. I can make this meal in thirty minutes or less, it tastes great, and it is nice enough for weeknight guests. Bonus! During the week I refuse to fry, so when I want something super crunchy I turn to my oven and panko […]

Apple Rolls with Butterscotch Whiskey Sauce

    We are apple people at my house.  Of course, as with anything, I am picky about apples.  No mealy or mushy apples need apply.  I want my apples frim, crisp, tangy, and sweet.  Granny Smith and Fuji are my two favorites.  So, when I have apples around, which I do more often than […]

Flourless Chocolate Cake

If you love chocolate then this recipe is the one for you.  My husband, who used to work in restaurants, would make this for me years ago when we were dating.  I found his old book of formulas and remembered how good this simple cake was and decided to go about making it.  His formula was […]

Crepes with Fresh Fruit, Whipped Cream and Ganache

Sounds fancy, right?  Well, it is fancy but it is not as complicated as you might think.  If you have never made crepes before then you need to know a few things. First, the thinner the crepe the better.  Crepes are quite eggy and if you make them too thick they will overpower the dessert.  […]

Have you ever had a bag of apples sitting around and you don’t know what to do with it?  Well, I found myself with that problem a few weeks ago and I decided to get creative.  The results were outstanding and I want to share.  Green apples are tops in my book.  They bake well, they slice and […]

Reverse Puff Pastry and Party Dips

Friday, February 1, 2008

So, last night we made, or at least began making, reverse puff pastry. Unlike regular puff pastry where butter is enclosed in dough, reverse puff pastry encloses dough in butter.  As the name implies it is reverse of the regular way.  Oddly enough it worked quite well though the first three turns (I have two […]
