Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip Bundt Cake

I love bundt cakes! I think it is the fact that they could go right out of the pan and need little more than a glaze, or a dusting of powdered sugar, to be ready to serve.  Growing up we used to have bundt cakes at most family gatherings.  At some point they fell out of favor with the members of my family.  Not, of course, that we would not eat one right up if you served it to us, but we never seemed to make them anymore. It is a real...

Banana Bread Pudding

A few weeks ago my husband and went to see the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies.    You know, the one hit wonders from the 90’s?  They were playing at the House of Blues in Dallas and I could not resist.

Coconut Curry Braised Short Ribs

I love coconut curries.  They are common on Thai menus and I adore their rich, creamy, and spicy flavors. Thai flavors have become rather common in my kitchen in recent years.  After I have my first bite of Pad Thai nearly ten years ago I became almost obsessed with trying new dishes and deconstructing them so I could make them at home.  Some of the attempts have been successful.  Other, not so much.  So, when I was wondering how to...
