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...

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...

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...

Chorizo Cheddar Potato Puffs

It is almost time for the BEST part of Thanksgiving. If you would guess the big meal itself you would only be half right.  My favorite part of this feasting holiday would be the day AFTER the big event when the left-overs roam free!  I love left-overs more than the actual meal because they can either be reheated and eaten as is, or they can be transformed into all manner of interesting dishes like soups, casseroles, or in this case...

Creamy Pumpkin Polenta

I love the side dishes served for Thanksgiving better the turkey. Yep, I’m the one who piles on the stuffing, scoops up the sweet potatoes, and gets the greediest portion of green beans.  For me turkey is better the next day in sandwiches, casseroles, or chopped up and cooked into soups.  This is one meal where excess is truly acceptable, and when my family cooks Thanksgiving dinner we have at least 6 side dishes, sometimes 10...
