Chorizo Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Dates

Thursday, May 5, 2011

20 Comments

Happy Cinco de Mayo!! Rather than give you yet another dip, enchilada, nacho, or taco recipe I thought to provide you a spicy/salty nibble to help soak up all the celebratory May 5th drinks.  For a long while I have been in love with bacon wrapped dates.  Something about sweet, tender dates wrapped in crisp, […]

Shredded Beef Sliders with Carrot Apple Slaw

Monday, February 28, 2011

I think the best way to cook a beef roast is in the slow cooker. I love that I can spend about ten minutes puttering in the kitchen, then I sit back for eight hours and, as if by magic, I have a pot of juicy, tender, wonderfully flavorful beef.  Speaking of beef, this is […]

Crab Jalapeno Hushpuppies

Monday, January 31, 2011

I love hushpuppies. I mean, who does not like golden grown, deep fried balls of delicious cornbread?  When I was growing up we had them with fried fish and shrimp dinners and they were the item I ate most greedily.  These days I make hushpuppies for all sorts of occasions and I have found they […]

Jalapeno Cheddar Pigs in Blankets

Thursday, January 20, 2011

49 Comments

Ok, sometimes you need things … I am serious when I say need. A few days ago I was discussing pigs in blankets with some friends on the Twitter.  It became apparent to me that, despite our love of the finer things, a good old-fashioned pig in a blanket could reduce us to children.  Happy, […]

Chorizo Dip

Monday, December 27, 2010

27 Comments

I find when guests come to visit that a good dip can make the evening. I’m not sure what it is exactly about dip that is so enticing, but I do know that a good dip recipe, or two, can be a life saver.  Perhaps it is the communal aspect of dips, the fact that […]

Boudin and Green Pepper Quiche

Breakfast for a crowd can be something of a nightmare. It is not that I dislike having people over – far from it – but when it is breakfast we are talking about it can get a little tense, especially if eggs are involved.  Cooking eggs in a manner that appeals to everyone is a […]

Queso Chicken Pasta

For the last few weeks I have been terribly busy.   When life starts to pile up on me, and lately that happens a lot, I crave easy meals that offer a lot of comfort.  Comfort, for me, comes in the form of cheesy pasta with a Tex-Mex kick.  I know I have mentioned before my […]

Chicken Enchiladas with Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce

Friday, March 19, 2010

25 Comments

I’ve never liked chicken enchiladas very much in Tex-Mex restaurants. The filling is mushy, the sauce is bland, and they can be a bit on the soggy side.  So, when I was thinking of recipes I could make for dinner a few nights back I wondered if I could make a chicken enchilada that I […]

Jalapeno, Bacon and Cheddar Cornbread

Friday, January 29, 2010

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 […]

Beef Empanadas

When I entertain I like to have a wide variety of foods available to snack on.  It keeps things from getting boring and it keeps the palate active.   So, when I plan a party of a gathering where little bites will be served I always make something with a Tex-Mex flair.  These empanadas are the […]
