  This is such a quick and simple cake to whip up for a summer evening supper. Serve it with fresh berries, or serve it with homemade jam. The original recipe is called Gateau au Yogurt and is traditionally made using the little glass "jar" that yogurt comes in in France. This recipe is used […]

  Such a typical Texas Hill Country Breakfast, made even more authentic with the Ranchero Red Sauce. I'm teaching a class this summer on canning this sauce (sign up!) so I'll post the recipe later. In the meantime, a canned Enchilada Sauce will do the trick, just not as wonderful! Anyone who knows me well […]

Shrimp Cakes

  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 […]

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 […]

Not a holiday goes by that my sister doesn’t say, “you are making pot pies, aren’t you?” I’ve posted about Pot Pies before, but as we enter Thanksgiving and Holiday time warp, it bears repeating. This is comfort food at its finest. I find it relaxing to make pastry crust from scratch–don’t hate me–but don’t […]

  This lovely, moist cake works as well for a showy dessert as it does for a breakfast spread. Enjoy with a cup of tea on a rainy afternoon. Do we need a reason? This is adapted from a recipe by the amazing Ina Garten.

Squashes

  This is another fall favorite of mine. I love the combination of butternut squash, golden caramelized onions, melty cheese, musky sage and flaky pastry. This recipe lends itself to multiple change ups. Most any hearty vegetable can sub in for the squash; use your favorite cheese and change up the herbs as you like. […]

  This is a pretty fancy outcome for a pretty simple process. It can be done ahead of time, wrapped and frozen. Just sheet pan reheat just before serving, but allso good at room temperature. I usually serve this with a little caramel drizzle or a dollop of whipped cream and dusting of cinnamon. I […]
