Today I am celebrating Christmas with my family and friends.  I wish you and yours a happy holiday season, a very Merry Christmas, and a day filled with joy! Next week we will discuss more party food for all those New Year’s Eve parties coming up.  Let’s get a jump start, shall we?  Here are […]

Crab Cake Dip

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

36 Comments

I am not a big fan of crab in a general sense.  In fact I am not a fan of shellfish overall. That said, I love, and have always loved, crab cakes.  I like the mix of flavors, the different textures, and I find the creaminess of the crab mixture hard to resist.  So, in […]

Spiced Chocolate Crinkles

There is something magic about a soft, chewy chocolate cookie. Crinkle cookies are an attractive addition to any platter of cookies.  I have a recipe that was given to me by a friend long ago which is lovely on its own, but you know me and my propensity to tinker.  Inspired by my Chocolate Spice […]

Fruit Cake

Wait!  Before you hit the back button just hear me out. I know fruit cake gets a bad rap, and most of the time it is well deserved.  Be it the candied citron, the fluorescent cherries, or insipidly sweet cake, most fruit cake is in fact very bad.  Terrible even.  I’m still asking you to […]

Double Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I love to tweak recipes. Sometimes they are big tweaks, other times it is a small change with a HUGE impact. This is one of those recipes. In The Joy of Cooking there is a recipe for perfectly lovely Peanut Butter Cookies. They are traditional, with the crosshatch design on the top, in a way […]

Orange Cheesecake Cookies

There is something of a joke in my family about cream cheese.   You see, my father loves the stuff.  I’ve seen him eat it on crackers, with salsa, on chips, or even plain.  Whenever he tries a new recipe, inevitably, his first comment is that it does not have enough cream cheese.  (Most of […]

Chocolate Chip Coconut Brown Butter Cookies

 I’m on something of a brown butter kick at the moment.  It is a really tasty kick, if I don’t mind saying.    After the Chocolate Spice Cake with Brown Butter Frosting I was looking for another way to use brown butter in sweets.  I decided on cookies, since they are my favorite thing to […]

                          Christmas cookies.  Two little words, but what images and memories they conjure.  In my family they are tradition.  I have five cookies that I make every year without fail. I have been known to add a new cookie into the mix from time to […]

Turkey Burgers

So, I am not feeling the holiday spirit this year, for some reason.  Maybe it is the elections, maybe it is the economy or the tax-payer bail-outs, or maybe it is the alignment of the stars.  Whatever the reason I have gotten lazy on my Christmas baking.  If I wait too much longer I will find […]

Cookie Fest 2008

Last night I began my holiday cookie fest.  I made Chocolate Chip Bars and Nigella’s Triple Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Mmmmm.  I doubled the recipes for both and I now have five containers of cookies ready to eat/give/serve in the freezer.   I will be doing Jam Thumbprints and Peanut Butter Cookies sometime this week, and this […]
