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...

Roast Beef and Cheddar Biscuit Spirals

I made a yummy, but the recipe is not here! No, this recipe is over at the adorable blog Stay at Home Foodie and you should go check it out right now! Deena, the lovely lady behind the blog, asked for blog posts about cooking with kids, something she is passionate about, and I decided I wanted to contribute. 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...

Mini Crab, Spinach, and Mushroom Tarts

Dear Pie, It has been a while, hasn’t it? It has been difficult to think about pie for the last few months because I spent the better part of a year writing two different cookbooks dedicated to the subject. From sweet to savory, and some pies that were a little of both, I was adrift in a sea of crusts, crumbles, and fillings with no end in sight. I love pie, but you can have too much of a good thing and I needed a pie hiatus....

Tex-Mex Scalloped Potatoes

Creamy potatoes, smothered in cheese, are my idea of heaven. April has been a super busy month for me. I was hired to do the photography for a cookbook and my deadline is the 30th. So, while I have been very busy in the kitchen lately, almost all of it is for the photography project I have been working on. Doing this kind of work is rewarding, but it leaves little time for recreational recipe development. That’s not to say I...
