Chocolate Italian Wedding Cupcakes with Chocolate Sour Cream Frosting

Thursday, July 21, 2011

38 Comments

These cupcakes were born of necessity. Originally this batch of cupcakes was intended to be a full fledged cake, but due to my rather appalling laziness the pans I had intended to use were dirty when the urge to bake struck.  When I say dirty I mean stuck on, needing a good soak, burnt on […]

Buttermilk Brown Butter Scones

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

It has been pretty cold here, and I have been pretty busy. I have been busy plugging away on my cookbook and that has taken a lot of my time.  So much of my time, in fact, that I have dedicated very little time to recreational baking.  So, when I decided to come out of […]

Cornbread Topped Turkey and Green Chile Casserole

The day after Thanksgiving I tend to bag up some of my left-over turkey and freeze it. I love knowing that I have, in my freezer, the means to make any number of easy weeknight meals.  From pot pies to tetrazzini, frozen turkey meat is a good thing to have on hand.  This year I […]

Chocolate Mousse Cake

Often simple desserts are better than complicated ones.   That is not to say that the flavors are simple.  What I mean is that the dessert itself is made of only a few very well constructed components.  This mousse cake is an example of this.  Tender cake fluffy, rich mousse, and a light dusting of powdered […]

Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Scones

I might have been thinking of cookies when I made these scones. I was craving chocolate chip cookies the other day when a picture of some cream scones caught my eye. Why couldn’t I take the best flavors of a chocolate chip cookie and combine them with some scones? So, I did just that! I […]

Jalapeno, Bacon and Cheddar Cornbread

Growing up in Texas, cornbread was something we ate almost weekly. Mom would almost always make her cornbread in a well-seasoned cast iron skillet.  That skillet gave the the cornbread a lovely crust on the bottom and I would always pick off the crusty bottom before eating the tender center.  We never got fancy with […]

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, […]

We recently had an ice day I got to stay home with my husband and our three dogs.  On such occasions, which are few and far between in my part of Texas, I like to make a big breakfast to celebrate a day of unexpected freedom.  So, I made a big stack of fluffy homemade […]
