Cheesy Baked Spaghetti Squash

Holy cow! Squash!?! On Evil Shenanigans!? Believe it or not, even I can’t live by bacon alone – much as I wish I could. Actually, believe it or not, I quite like vegetables. My favorite way to prepare them for daily meals is simply to grill them with a little olive oil and parm, but sometimes I like to get fancy and make something that is rich, creamy, and oozing with cheesy goodness. Yes, even my vegetables are Evil! I...

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!

Who knew? In the spirit of ‘out with the old and in...

King Ranch Chicken Tostadas

I love casseroles. They are what I consider the perfect comfort food. Why? Well, they are usually easy to make, they can be frozen ahead for times when the act of cooking seems to much to bear, and they are a complete meal in one dish. As I said, I love casseroles but I rarely eat them. My husband, you see, hates most casseroles. I am not sure if it is a texture thing, or a visual thing, but he won’t eat them most of the time....

Double Bacon Cheeseburger with Avocado Slaw

Fresh off the grill, nothings beats the flavor of a homemade burger. My love of hamburgers is fairly epic. I know all the places in Dallas, and a few in Houston, where juicy grilled beef goodness can be found, and I have an almost endless supply of burger recipes at my disposal. Call it  burger for every mood. There is an art to a well balanced hamburger, and so many places get it wrong. Obviously the patty is crucial. It needs to be...

Cheddar Beer Drop Biscuits

On a hot summer day there is nothing better than a frosty beer. Beer was not always my libation of choice. In fact my love affair with beer is fairly recent, about 8 years old. It all began with Mexican beers served with plates of spicy Tex-Mex. Margaritas were always my first choice because I love the refreshing taste of lime with rich food. My husband convinced me to try a sip of his beer, which had a squeeze of fresh lime, and it...
