Boudin and Green Pepper Quiche

Breakfast for a crowd can be something of a nightmare. It is not that I dislike having people over – far from it – but when it is breakfast we are talking about it can get a little tense, especially if eggs are involved.  Cooking eggs in a manner that appeals to everyone is a tricky thing.  Some like their eggs fried with a soft yolk, others like scrambled eggs so hard they resemble rubber.  I have found only one way to...

Peach Cream Pie

I recently went on a road trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas. One of my road trip rules is to find off-the-beaten-path places to eat.  I prefer to eat where the locals eat, since they often have the most unique, and tastiest, food.   Why eat at a chain place, or, even worse, a fast food window?  We hit Texarkana around lunch time and, using the trusty iPhone, we found a place called Bryce’s, a cafeteria which has been around since...

Blueberry Lime Fromage Blanc Tart

Ahhh, fresh blueberries! One of the best parts of spring is the arrival in the markets of fresh, plump berries.  I always get the itch to make a tart or pie with fresh berries at this time of year, and while shopping I also sampled some excellent fromage blanc.  I decided instantly that they would be perfect in a dessert together. This tart is the perfect blend of mouthwatering tang from the cheese, bright citrus flavor from the lime,...

Peanut Butter Cream Pie with Chocolate Whipped Cream

I am a sucker for peanut butter desserts. I love peanut butter cookies, peanut butter fudge, hot peanut butter poured over ice cream, spicy peanut sauce … you name a culinary application for peanut butter and I most likely love it.  So, it should come as no great surprise that, while I found myself whisking  a chocolate filling for a chocolate cream pie, I decided to see how I could incorporate peanut butter into a cream pie. A...
