Queso Blanco Pull-Apart Bread

Get ready, it is time for cheesy carbs and free stuff! First, the free stuff! I have been a busy girl over the last year writing and photographing my own cookbooks, and shooting the photos for other cookbooks. It has been a labor of love – and many, many cuss words. That said, I am giving away two of these books, one written by me the other photographed by me. The first is a signed copy of Moufflet, my cookbook featuring recipes...

Beer Cheese Crackers with Beer Cheese Spread

Well, how was your 2012? All-in-all, mine was pretty fantastic! My mom survived a medical scare, and this is what I am most grateful for, but other bright spots include the release of my two latest cookbooks, speaking at Camp Blogaway and BlogHer Food, and discovering that  – after cleaning out 12 garbage bags of clothes and shoes – I CAN keep my closet organized! Who knew? In the spirit of ‘out with the old and in...

Cheddar Beer Drop Biscuits

My husband convinced me to try a sip of his beer, which had a squeeze of fresh lime, and it...

I have no kids of my own, unless you count my three hound dogs as kids … which I do, but I was a kid and I spend time...

Fully Loaded Beer Bread

Bad things happen when I go shopping without a list. For the most part I am a responsible adult who makes well informed decisions base on facts and logic. I say for the most part because there are certainly areas where I struggle. Grocery shopping, for example, is an area where I can improve. This is what happens: It is 3:30pm and I am sitting at my desk at work flipping though my mental recipe cards, trying to come up with a plan for...

Blueberry Maple Drop Biscuits

Nothing beats a well made biscuit. When I first started to get interested in cooking I spent a lot of time learning about southern comfort foods.  I was raised by two generations of Texas women who grew up on southern food, so the food of my childhood leaned heavily toward traditional, stick-to-your-ribs fare.  Biscuits were always a particular favorite of mine.  Honestly I loved any and all bread, but fresh buttermilk biscuits really...
