White Chocolate, Cranberry, Pecan, and Sweet Potato Cookies

My kitchen is a very happy place right now. After summer, fall is my favorite season for cooking.  Autumn vegetables, fruits, and spices are among my favorite things to cook with.  The warm flavors speak of home and comfort to me.  Because I love these flavors I tend to overbuy fresh fall produce when it […]

When Casey from Tastestopping approached me about participating in the November Kitchen Play event, how could I say no? She asked me to deconstruct the classic pumpkin pie using Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin from Nestlé Kitchens*.  Canned pumpkin is a very versatile ingredient and is a pantry staple for me year round.  It can stand […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ready for something a tad more advanced?  It takes time to make, but it is SO worth it. I fell in love with croissant making a few semesters ago in my Laminated Dough class.  Bread making is among my favorite things to do in the kitchen, but making laminated doughs (doughs with butter sandwiched between […]

Growing up we would go to Houston for Thanksgiving and spend it with my mom’s family. We would always have Thanksgiving dinner at my Aunt Ruby’s house, because she had the largest dining room, and the food was always spectacular. Of course, as a child all I was only interested in stuffing, rolls, macaroni and […]

Slow-Cooker Braised Short Ribs with Honey Garlic Glaze

Braising is one of my favorite ways to prepare tough cuts of meat. This slow method of cooking breaks down the connective tissues and fat making otherwise tough cuts of meat tender, juicy, and very flavorful.  I almost feel bad for people who have no idea how wonderful cheap cuts can be.  Of the cheap […]

My grandmother is going to be 89 tomorrow.   I know, 89!! She told me, when I asked what she wanted me to bake for her special day, to just make whatever.  "Great," I said and smiled, but inside I was frozen.  What was I going to make???? She has no idea what leaving this choice […]
