Quick Sour Cream Cinnamon Rolls

Boy, has it been a LONG week … For the second time in three weeks I have gone AWOL, and I am sorry for that.  I was hoping that after my last bout of family related drama things would quiet down, but it was not to be.  Last week my father was feeling a little funny, and his blood pressure was pretty high, so he went to the hospital.  After testing they found that he would need bypass surgery … sooner rather than later.  He...

Cornmeal Buttermilk Cake with Chocolate Buttermilk Frosting

I am the kind of person who appreciates texture.

Pecan Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake

Oh baby, it is COLD outside! The Dallas area, and most areas in the Mid-west, are enduring what I am unofficially calling ‘Ice-pocalypse 2011′. Around the Evil Shenanigans homestead the temperatures hovering around 15 F, while ice and gusty winds have made travel and work nearly impossible.  When I get cooped up indoors during this kind of weather I tend to do some nesting.  I clean, putter around the house, read, and...
