Cooking brunch for a group can be a lot of work but I’m always looking for options to upgrade the basic scramble. One of my “go to” recipes has long been baked eggs. They’re simple to do and a great way to cook a large […]

Spiced Hot Cider

Spiced Hot Cider

Greeting cards have all been sent, the Christmas rush is through… In reality, at my house not all the cards were sent and not all the stockings were hung this year. It’s Christmas morning, so sit back with friends, loved ones or a quiet moment […]

The holidays keep our schedules packed. Attending candlelight services on Christmas Eve has been a tradition in our family for years. But the challenge was juggling Christmas Eve activities and meal preparation. I needed something I could prepare in advance, let it cook while we […]

Jam Thumbprints

This is one of the most beautiful cookies! With the glistening jewel-toned jam nestled into a tender shortbread cookie coated with a flaky, golden crust of coconut. Jam Thumbprints are almost too pretty to eat. Almost. There are so many recipes for thumbprint cookies, some […]

We have a Christmas Cookie list. The number of recipients varies from year to year, and yes – you can fall off the list! (Tell me you’re on a diet during the holidays and you’re as good as scratched!) This adventure started innocently enough. When […]

Christmas Chili

Christmas Chili

It was 84 here in Texas on Monday, today it’s in the 40s and last night they were saying something about a chance of snow flurries! Or as my Dad would have said, someone left the barn door open and let the cold air in! […]

Chocolate Bread Pudding

Chocolate Bread Pudding

Some days we just need chocolate. And this dish is chocolate in a divine form. Pillows of Challah bread soaked in a rich, chocolate egg custard infused with a rum and coffee liqueur. And the best part – it takes minutes to prepare before baking. […]
