Chocolate Peanut Butter Marble Cookies

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

The holidays put me in the mood for cookies! Of course, as you may already know, I love and adore cookies.  Since it is the holidays I am in the mood for pretty cookies that taste really good.  Those kind of cookies are not only good for nibbling on as you wrap presents but for […]

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 […]

Bacon Dressed Green Beans

I have the secret for making EVERY vegetable, as long as you are a carnivore, taste better. It is not a very well kept secret, since EVERYONE knows about bacon.  This recipe started out as green bean bundles from a cookbook I borrowed from my mother.  The beans were blanched then slow roasted which left […]

Breakfast Bread Pudding

What happens when you combine breakfast and dessert? Answer: Magic!  I had actually been contemplating the breakfast/dessert idea for a while.  What spurred me into action was the email from the folks at FoodBuzz to let us know that Nature’s Pride would be holding their Bread Ambassador program again.  Nature’s Pride will select a few […]

Paneer Potato Cakes

In the last few months I have discovered a few new ingredients that I absolutely love! The first of these is a spice called asafoetida, a deeply pungent smelling spice that, when cooked, adds a smooth onion flavor.   A little of this spice makes a big difference as far as complexity of flavor is concerned.  […]

Chocolate Dipped Lime Cardamom Cookies

When it is hot out I find lime to be most refreshing. Even in cookie form, lime flavored treats seem to taste the best when the temperature outside starts to soar.  We are in the middle of a heat wave in the Dallas area, so I am all about refreshing at the moment.  Since I […]

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 […]

Beef Shawarma Meatballs

Not long ago I had lunch at a little Lebanese restaurant and I discovered some really wonderful new dishes. One of these was shawarma, a meat mixture that is marinated in a spice blend, placed on a spit, and slowly grilled.  It is sliced thin and served with pita and other fresh garnishes.  It is […]

Coconut Mango Rice Pudding

What do you do when you have a mango approaching over-ripeness and a half a can of coconut milk? I don’t know about you, but I turn it into rice pudding!   Mango and coconut are a perfect flavor match.  I love, for example, chunks of ripe mango with some toasted coconut scattered over the top.  […]

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 […]
