  I'm not much of a crab person, but I love these little shrimp cakes. I usually mix up the "crumb" part with some panko, pretzels, crackers or any bits of cereal I have left over to make up the bind and the crust. I have made these with GF crackers quite successfully too. They […]

Cream of Jalapeño Soup

  This rich and creamy soup makes a great starter or main course, served with a salad. The jalapeños can be seeded or not to achieve your desired level of heat. However you do that, the distinct flavor of the jalapeños shines through. I've guided this soup with some additional fried peppers and shallots.

  There's nothing more comforting than hot, home made rolls from the oven. But do you have time to make them? This recipe does have the typical bowl rise and shape rise time but you can make the dough ahead and bake the next day or make ahead, bake "blond" and then finish baking just […]

  So this recipe starts as a great salad that you don't have to worry about it sitting out at a picnic or gathering. Then magically, turn it into a chilly night soup with the leftovers! The touch of acidity with the lime juice is a perfect foil to the beans. I like to grill […]

  This is a really nice glaze for flat cookies or cakes. It does dry semi hard but perhaps not hard enough for packaging. However, it is so much tastier than Meringue Powder, which dries rock hard. This glaze can be edited to take on most any flavor you can dream up.

sugar cookie

  This is the frosting you want to use for detailed cookie decorating. It dries hard for packaging. It's not much on flavor but you can add different extracts. Keep it covered well when not using, pushing plastic wrap on the surface, as it dries rock hard when exposed to air.

There are certain times of the year that I wouldn’t dream of making biscuits in the morning, but entering company and holiday time, I will be dragging this recipe out.  These biscuits are as cheesy and as spicy as you want them to be. Great news, you can make them pretty far in advance and […]
