Make something special for your little goblins this Halloween! Popcorn balls were always around at Halloween when we were kids. Mom made them most every Halloween. They were always in abundance at the annual carnival at our school and when we went out trick-or-treating it […]

Hot Chocolate – Turn Up the Flavor!

Hot Chocolate – Turn Up the Flavor!

The wind is blowing and a cold front is moving into the area. This colder weather makes me yearn for hot chocolate. Though I’m somewhat a purest when it comes to this creamy, hot beverage occasionally a variation comes along that is worthy of making […]

Caramel Apple Pie with Toasted Pecans

Caramel Apple Pie with Toasted Pecans

Crisp, sweet apples dipped in gooey, golden melted caramel. As a kid, my Mom made caramel apples especially around this time of year. It was a treat most of our Moms made. Caramel and apples are a natural combination, blending delightful autumn flavors with creamy […]

Making candy at home is somewhat a lost art. Many are intimidated by the process and have never given it a try. With the right tools and a trick or two making candy is really not a daunting process. This peanut brittle recipe is a […]

Pumpkin Bread

Pumpkin Bread

I hesitate to even utter the word pumpkin. It is definitely a flavor that has been maligned in the world of food. Last week I saw pumpkin flavored marshmallows in the market and knew we had moved past the point of being reasonable. So in […]

Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup

I craved Tex-Mex when I was pregnant with Emily, so it is no doubt she also loves this food group. Yes, in Texas, Tex-Mex is a food group and we’re known to eat it multiple times a week. On most every menu in Tex-Mex restaurants you’ll […]

Shrimp Cobb Salad with Green Goddess Dressing

After a weekend full of activities and sometimes a bit of overindulgence, nothing is better for dinner than a beautiful salad. A couple of extra steps elevate a basic “tossed salad” to an extraordinary meal. The Cobb Salad is a classic. And it’s wonderful served […]

Indian Summer. We most commonly think of an Indian Summer as a warm period in early fall. A time where we’ve had a short spell of cool weather then summer seems to return for one last fling. Cool weather in early fall is not all […]

Spice Muffins

Spice Muffins

This is one of those delightful things that leave you wanting one more bite. It’s a cross between a muffin and a tender baked doughnut with subtle notes of freshly grated nutmeg, pure vanilla extract finished with a buttery cinnamon-sugar topping. Spice muffins are a […]
