Strawberry White Chocolate Mousse Crepes

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

60 Comments

I am  a sucker for just about anything strawberry. We have reached that time of year where I start to crave all things Spring.  Knowing it it just around the corner makes me anxious for its arrival.  The weather here in Dallas is already starting to get warmer, and when things like strawberries start to […]

Turkey and Mushroom Soup

Monday, November 22, 2010

12 Comments

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the left-overs. With as much as we cook it’s never a surprise that we can’t eat it all, which is fine by me.  I love a breakfast of cornbread stuffing and turkey before I start putting up my Christmas decorations.  Usually we have so much left over […]

I am exhausted. Project Food Blog has been, and continues to be, intense, I’ve had friends in from out of the country, I have four family birthdays coming up, and I am still working three part-time jobs.  On top of it all looms the specter of Thanksgiving and all the preparation that entails.  I am […]

Aside from making it into the 3rd round of Project Food Blog – thank you all for your votes! – I am celebrating the release of a new book by my favorite fiction author, Deanna Raybourn.  Her Lady Julia series, set in Victorian England, feature the exploits of Lady Julia and private […]

Creamy Mushroom Soup

Sometimes you just need some comfort. Yesterday was not a great day for me.  In fact, it was terrible.  Before I got home I decided that a nice, warm, creamy bowl of soup would fit the bill.  I have been craving mushroom soup for a few weeks, ever since having some rather superb mushroom soup […]

Cornbread Pudding

Now matter how hard I try to restrain myself, when it comes to holidays I always make too  much food. The 4th of July is no exception.  Since we typically have some sort of smoked meat on the 4th, usually of the pork variety, I feel compelled to make a big batch of cornbread to […]

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 […]

Cream of Chicken Soup

I always forget how easy soups are to make.     One of my favorite soups is cream of chicken.  For the longest time I would buy the soup from the deli of the grocery store because I quite simply never thought to make it myself.  I am kicking myself about it now because not only […]

Pan Seared Chicken with Creamy Polenta and Bacon

I love one pot dishes.    Anything I can do to save washing up dishes after dinner is always welcome.  Aside from making the washing up easier, building the dish in one pan gives you a unique opportunity to develop some pretty robust flavors.  You never lose any fond, the caramelized bits that get stuck […]
