Banana Bread Pudding

A few weeks ago my husband and went to see the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies.    You know, the one hit wonders from the 90’s?  They were playing at the House of Blues in Dallas and I could not resist. I love swing music so much I even took swing dancing lessons in college.  We decided to go […]

I might have been thinking of cookies when I made these scones. I was craving chocolate chip cookies the other day when a picture of some cream scones caught my eye. Why couldn’t I take the best flavors of a chocolate chip cookie and combine them with some scones? So, I did just that! I […]

Black and White Cream Pie

Ready for some new shenanigans?  How about we start with pie?    When I first started cooking I used to make something called “Oreo Pie”.  It was made with an Oreo crust, chocolate and vanilla instant pudding, and whipped topping.  It was easy, it tasted pretty good, and when sliced it looked fairly impressive.  That pie […]

Southern Banana Pudding

Nothing is quite like homemade, from scratch, banana pudding.    Sure, you can make a passable banana pudding with instant pudding mix, but if you really want to taste something special make your custard from scratch.  Once you do you will never use a box of pudding again.  Besides, taking about ten minutes to cook […]

I love old family recipes.  I also love cookies. My mom makes some pretty fantastic oatmeal cookies.  They are my grandmother’s recipe, handed down on a butter stained note card, and they are lovely.  Crisp throughout with a hint of cinnamon and a lovely nubby texture makes them instantly craveable.  They are mom’s go-to cookie and the most […]

Chocolate Swirl Pound Cake

When I was a child swirled pound cake was an utter mystery to me. I wondered how they were able to get the chocolate batter to make such intricate designs in the finished cake.  Now that I am older I understand that the oven does nearly all the swirling because as the cake bakes the […]

Pecan Tassies (aka Pecan Pie Cookies)

I have a love affair with little pie shaped cookies. This time it is cookies that are in fact tiny pecan pies!  I adore them, with their little nubbly tops and their gooey centers.  These are lovely for dessert with a cup of coffee, make a lovely gift wrapped in a pretty bag, or are […]

Caramel Cake with Cinnamon Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting

So, the recipe for Bourbon Caramel Apple Pie Cookies contains a recipe that yields well over a cup of caramel sauce.    That is a lot more caramel than you really need.  Never fear, I have an elegant solution for what to do with the extra caramel that does not require two pints of ice cream and a marathon of my favorite Marilyn Monroe […]
