Last year I visited my family in Houston and while I was there I had my first taste of Baked Potato Dip.

I am something of a comfort food junkie. I have discovered, over the last year, the delightful bliss that is polenta.  I have also discovered that I am passionately in love with chicken thighs.  So, when I was craving something rich, creamy, and comforting the other night I decided to take my two new comfort […]

Ahhh, fresh blueberries! One of the best parts of spring is the arrival in the markets of fresh, plump berries.  I always get the itch to make a tart or pie with fresh berries at this time of year, and while shopping I also sampled some excellent fromage blanc.  I decided instantly that they would […]

Lately my life has been going at the speed of ‘AHHHHHHHH!!!” I work three part-time jobs, go to school two nights a week, I blog,I belly dance, and I have family obligations.  Any way you look at it, I keep really busy.  So, on those nights when I feel completely knackered this recipe makes it […]

Pan Seared Chicken with Creamy Polenta and Bacon

I love one pot dishes.    Anything I can do to save washing up dishes after dinner is always welcome.  Aside from making the washing up easier, building the dish in one pan gives you a unique opportunity to develop some pretty robust flavors.  You never lose any fond, the caramelized bits that get stuck […]

When the weather turns cold and the wind begins to howl, nothing warms me up faster than a bowl of creamy risotto. Shockingly, I have never had Risotto until last year!  To be honest with you, it was always the last thing I considered ordering because I love pasta so much, but one night at […]

Last year I had the opportunity to attend a mushroom event in Dallas where we were provided a cooking demo by Chef Kent Rathburn of Abacus restaurant. My favorite dish of the event was a polenta cake with mushroom ragu.  A few weeks after the event I received the recipe for the polenta with mushroom […]

Beef Enchiladas

My husband, despite coming from Chicago originally, likes Tex-Mex food a lot.  He does not, however, like cheese and onion enchiladas.   It is the cheese that he objects to, not the enchiladas themselves, so because I love him I make him beef enchiladas when I make cheese and onion  for myself.    Beef enchiladas are simple, but I wondered […]

I had a busy weekend in the kitchen, and most of it was spent with Nigella Lawson’s cookbook Express. To start let me say that I think the principals of Express are wonderful.  Real food that does not take forever to make.  I can attest to the speed of the recipes, the five I have […]
