FoodBuzz: 24, 24, 24 – Eating Local – Dallas, Texas

Howdy y’all!  Welcome to Texas! One evening, while feeling particularly full of myself, I submitted a proposal for Foodbuzz’s montlhy 24, 24, 24 event.  For those of you reading who do not know what 24, 24, 24 is I’ll give you the short version.  24 bloggers have 24 food events over 24 hours.  Fun, right?

Raspberry Chipotle Swirl Cupcakes

If you were to ask me what my favorite flavor of the moment was, I would answer, “Chipotle!”   Dried and smoked jalapenos are magic, and they reach super-nova status when incorporated into sweet applications.  Like Vern’s Raspberry Chipotle Jelly, which is sweet and spicy.  I have used it to fill danish, spread it inside turnovers, and now I have swirled it into vanilla cupcakes.   Inspiration struck looking at some...

This pie is one such idea.  You see I had a party to attend for my mom.  She said, “Oh, just make whatever you like.  I’m sure it will be fine.”  Saying that to me can be dangerous because now I have a full license to experiment.  Sometimes the experiment turns out badly, and one day I may...
