Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Summer is in full swing, and that means in North Texas it is HOT, HOT, HOT! I am loathe to turn on the oven or stand over the stove when the temps are pushing 100F, but that does not mean I eat nothing but cold sandwiches and salads.  Oh no, what it means is instead of a big heavy meal I eat lots of smaller snack sized meals that require a minimum of fuss but pack a lot of flavor.  One of my favorite things to eat lately is hummus. ...

Maple Thyme Chicken Legs

Lemon Cherry Cake

When I buy fruit I find that I almost always buy more than I need.    In fact, I would go so far as to say I do that with most food.  That isn’t to say I am forever throwing away perfectly good food, but I plan for a dessert or salad and then overbuy with abandon and have to come up with a second, and even third recipe to use it all up.   That is what happened when I bought cherries for my Cherry Cheese Tart.  I bought loads of...
