Bacon Dill Potato Salad

Friday, December 17, 2010

17 Comments

The holidays are not always frosty and cold. Sometimes they are downright warm! At least they are in the Dallas area.  Sure, last year we enjoyed a white Christmas, but our typical Christmas is spent in often balmy 70 degree weather.  When I plan my Christmas Day meal I pay close attention to the weather.  […]

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 […]

Carrot, Cardamom and Coconut Soup

I always carry with me a book I call my ‘Inspiration Book’. This is the place where I jot down ideas, or flavors, so when I get back to my home kitchen I remember what it was, exactly, that inspired me.  This little book has served me well, and it is directly responsible for this […]

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.  […]

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 […]

Before we begin I have some exciting news!  My Beef Empinadas recipe was selected as a finalist in the Ro*Tel Across America contest!  Voting is open and you can vote for your favorite recipe here! I am a big fan of quiche.  If made properly it is the perfect balance of crust and eggy, cheesy […]

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 […]

Coconut Curry Braised Short Ribs

I love coconut curries.  They are common on Thai menus and I adore their rich, creamy, and spicy flavors. Thai flavors have become rather common in my kitchen in recent years.  After I have my first bite of Pad Thai nearly ten years ago I became almost obsessed with trying new dishes and deconstructing them […]

Zinfandel Braised Chicken Thighs with Mushrooms and Polenta

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 […]

Egg Salad

If you are anything like me, you have a few left-over eggs from Easter.   When I was growing up we never had egg salad.  Maybe it was because my parents did not care for it, or maybe they never thought of it, but we never had it.  Once I struck out on my own […]
