Pineapple Coconut Caramel Muffins

There is one word to describe my life right now – Busy! I have had a lot going on on various fronts –  some good some bad – and I feel like I have spent more time on the road than at home these last few weeks. Rather than bore you with the gory details (some of which I will share in future posts) I will sum it up by saying that my time in the kitchen experimenting with my Shenanigans as been decidedly limited. I have...

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...

Typically we make dinner together – he grills and I do the rest...

Ever had dinner with someone who got a dish that was better than yours? Food Sad. Ever made a meal that did not taste as good as you expected? Food...

Boozy Blood Orange Pound Cake

I have a new love in my life and it is Blood Orange Liqueur. If you have never had blood orange liqueur you need to immediately! My brand of choice is Solerno. The flavor is mild and not overly sweet, and it tastes like fresh blood orange juice but with a distinct – and potent – kick. It also comes in a beautiful bottle, if such things matter to you. I can’t say enough nice things about it. We had it in more than a...

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...
