Fresh Pasta

Fresh Pasta

There are some wonderful store-bought pastas but the difference in fresh, homemade pasta and boxed is really quite remarkable. Tender to the tooth with an almost creamy-like texture, homemade pasta is utterly luxurious. There are three steps in making fresh pasta – making the dough, […]

Old-Fashioned Southern Biscuits

Old-Fashioned Southern Biscuits

There are just some foods and that one bite transports us to another time, another place –  bringing along a rush of feelings and memories. For me, biscuits are one of those foods. Biscuits are a simple country food and no decent Southern cook would […]

Blueberry Lemon Jam

Blueberry Lemon Jam

Fresh, plump blueberries floating in a heavenly thick syrup with the essence of lemon. A taste of the season in every bite! Blueberries are currently in abundance and it just so happens that one of the engineer’s favorite things is blueberry jam. Yes, I know […]

Cold Brew Coffee and Iced Café Latte

Cold Brew Coffee and Iced Café Latte

There was a time if you were served a cold cup of coffee you would send it back – but not now – now it’s a “hot” trend! Cold brew – coffee if brewed properly will develop flavors that are robust, intense and smooth. There […]

Watermelon Feta Caprese Salad

Watermelon Feta Caprese Salad

To say it’s hot in Texas would be an understatement. But it is summer and it is July and this is Texas, so something cool and refreshing seems to be perfect for the menu. Look no further than watermelon – the quintessential summer fruit! We […]

King Ranch Chicken Casserole

King Ranch Chicken Casserole

If lasagna had originated in Texas it might look something like the King Ranch Chicken Casserole. Layers of Southwestern flavors in a creamy sauce blanketing roasted chicken, tucked between corn tortillas with cheese melting throughout! Casseroles became extremely popular in the 1950s and the 1960s […]

Coconut Almond Muffins

Coconut Almond Muffins

The fragrance of anything baking in the oven is wonderful. But add the scent of coconut, almond with a hint of orange and the scent will simply take your breath away. Tender muffins are loaded with flavor and texture from the inside out. Toasted almonds […]

Peach Shortcake Cobbler

Peach Shortcake Cobbler

What to do when you get carried away with your peach purchase at the Farmer’s Market? You have your (short)cake and eat it too! This is a delicious twist on cobbler and shortcake – really the best of both worlds. Sweet, tender peaches cooked until […]

Cherry Soup

Cherry Soup

Sweet, fresh cherries are at their peak during the hot summer months, so a cold cherry soup seems a perfect match! We love to entertain and I’m always reading cookbooks, trying new recipes or reviving old ones. This dish falls in the “old recipe” category […]

Peach Preserves – Two Ways!

Peach Preserves – Two Ways!

There is nothing quite like fresh peach preserves – the sweet, floral scent of peaches encased in a thick nectar. My Grandparents had beautiful peach trees on their farm. As kids we would climb up into the trees and pluck these luscious pieces of fruit, […]

Beef Enchiladas with Red Chili Sauce

Beef Enchiladas with Red Chili Sauce

Tender beef – with just enough heat that lingers – gently rolled in tender corn tortillas, smothered in a rich, spicy sauce and topped off with creamy Monterrey Jack cheese. Tex-Mex cuisine is a staple in Texas. When I was pregnant with Emily I craved […]

Red Sangria with Citrus-Infused Simple Syrup

Red Sangria with Citrus-Infused Simple Syrup

Festive and fruity! This classic punch with Spanish roots is the perfect beverage to tackle these hot summer days! Through the generations Sangria has taken on many tones and many flavors but Red Sangria is always a favorite. This version starts with a fruity base […]
