Apple Bacon Potato Cakes with Poached Eggs

I am a sucker for anything served with a poached egg. From salads to English muffins, poached eggs are among my favorite things to prepare and eat.   A perfectly poached egg is a thing of beauty, and when you break into the golden, oozing yolk … well I can’t think of many things that are better.  Now that the warmer weather is behind us I find myself craving the heartier foods that really stick to the ribs.  I am not much...

Crab Jalapeno Hushpuppies

I love hushpuppies. I mean, who does not like golden grown, deep fried balls of delicious cornbread?  When I was growing up we had them with fried fish and shrimp dinners and they were the item I ate most greedily.  These days I make hushpuppies for all sorts of occasions and I have found they make an excellent appetizer, especially if I add a little seafood directly to the batter. These hushpuppies are very rich.  Lump crab meat is...

Bacon Dill Potato Salad

The holidays are not always frosty and cold. Sometimes they are downright warm! At least they are in the Dallas area.  Sure, last year we enjoyed a white Christmas, but our typical Christmas is spent in often balmy 70 degree weather.  When I plan my Christmas Day meal I pay close attention to the weather.  If temps are looking to be above 60 then I plan a lighter meal that can be served cold, or at room temperature.  This potato salad...
