Toasted Pecan Chocolate Cheese Tart

My goodness, it is nearly Turkey Day! I am not sure where the year went, I feel like I just took down the Christmas tree, yet I find myself at the starting line for another holiday season. With most holidays I start my planning with the menu. This year my mother is hosting Thanksgiving at […]

Baked Eggs with Homemade Sausage and Grits

There is something magic about food. The last few weeks have been somewhat difficult for me.  Nothing too extreme, but I have had a fair amount of work related stress, the stress of Christmas Day, and I am coming up on my first deadline for the next book.  Needless to say, I have been a […]

Sweet Potato Pecan Coconut Cake

I love single layer cakes. They have a rustic appeal that I find immensely comforting.   Most single layer cakes are charmingly homemade in appearance, requiring no special skills to decorate them.  No torting layers, no stacking, no praying you avoid the  dreaded buttercream belly around the side of the cake.  If you decorate cakes […]

Pecan Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake

Oh baby, it is COLD outside! The Dallas area, and most areas in the Mid-west, are enduring what I am unofficially calling ‘Ice-pocalypse 2011′. Around the Evil Shenanigans homestead the temperatures hovering around 15 F, while ice and gusty winds have made travel and work nearly impossible.  When I get cooped up indoors during this […]

The end of the year is rapidly approaching, and it is time to plan those New Years Eve parties! This year, like every year, I will spend the evening with my family before returning home to ring in the new year with my husband and dogs.  It is our little tradition.  My mom serves the […]

Chorizo Dip

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 […]

The holidays have officially arrived, and I’m in the mood for something both naughty and nice! It is also time for another Project Food Blog Challenge.  Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much for helping me get this far!  I never imagined I would be participating in Challenge 8, and I am humbled […]

Turkey and Mushroom Soup

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 know for many this is the kick-off to what will be a crazy month of cooking, shopping, decorating, and enjoying family and friends.  For my family Thanksgiving is filled with tradition, from mom’s roast turkey to my pumpkin cheesecake.  Along […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Casserole

Monday, November 15, 2010

I love nothing more than a creamy, cheesy casserole. When you strike the right balance between healthy vegetables and cheesy sauce it is a thing of beauty.  Butternut squash is my favorite winter squash.  With a mild, slightly sweet flavor it is perfect for roasting, blending into soups, and baking into casseroles.  The mild flavor […]
