Dark Chocolate Banana Pudding

Banana pudding is a Southern staple. In the South – and Texas especially – food is love, and nothing says, “I love you!” better than banana pudding. Is your neighborhood having its annual pot luck supper? Count on at least one banana pudding. Did a friend or relative lose a loved one? Taking over a banana pudding is a lovely gesture to help comfort the bereaved. Is it your birthday? Banana pudding is ALWAYS...

Texas Peach Cheesecake

Summer is pretty much over. Let’s have one last peachy hurrah! I have made this cheesecake about 6 times this summer for various birthday’s, special occasions, and parties. It disappeared in record time! This is a dense, silky cheesecake with a very creamy center. If you love peaches,  you will be happy to know peaches are truly the star here, featured on the top and pureed into the filling. This is great after dinner, or...

Watching the colorful flowers wave gently in the breeze is almost hypnotic. If you have not...

Cacao Nib Cookies

Love, as they say, is in the air. At least that is what candy, greeting card, teddy bear, pajama. and rose producers would like you to believe. It is nearly Valentine’s Day, the greeting card holiday that has convinced most people that the only acceptable way to express their love is through the purchase of overpriced cards, heart-shaped boxes of mediocre candy, and roses.

Apple Pecan Tart

I am a sinful person (as if the Evil in my blog’s title was not proof enough). This tart is proof of my sinful ways. You see, in my heart of hearts I am a slothful person. Don’t tell anyone, but there is nothing I like better than to spend a lazy day at home in my jammies watching movies while I neglect the housework, and my adult responsibilities. I have overcome my lazy nature for the most part, my lazy days are few and...
