I've had to make a lifestyle change in the way my family and I eat. Now don't get me wrong, I will still have days when I cook something yummy and maybe not so great for me. But, for the most part I (we) need to start eating better. This week I found something that I will start cooking with more often, Agave Nectar. Of course, I found it at HEB but I have even seen it at Wal-Mart (in Crosby no less) so, there is no excuse. :) It tastes like honey but is lower in calories and a... Continue reading

A couple of weeks ago I had a Tapas cooking class for a group of lovely ladies. I was nervous and they totally kept me at ease. I had the best time and I hope they did too. Spanish Tapas are the best thing to serve for large groups. Not only are they yummy but a little goes a long way. Take the garlic shrimp, 1 1/2 lbs fed 8 women with a little left over and that was devoured not long after they left!! Next time you are having a party or get together consider doing some tapas and... Continue reading

I think my husband loves me a little bit more after eating this. If you don't know my husband, he LOVES Mexican food, I mean loves it! If he ever decides to leave me it might just be for a woman that makes homemade tortillas everyday. He would be so happy...he might also die of a heart attack at 50 but he would have a smile on his face!! So, let's get down to it, shall we? This was so yummy. I had to ride a couple of extra miles on my bike but so worth it. As Paula Deen... Continue reading

We LOVE Asian food at our house. It doesn't matter if it's Chinese, Japanese, or Thai...we love it all. When I found this recipe for Beef with Coconut sauce, I had to try it. Definitely different than anything we've had before but very, very good. I served it with sesame broccoli (recipe coming tomorrow) and steamed white rice w/ peanuts and green onions. Easy peasy!! One 2-pound London Broil (I used one strip steak) Kosher Salt and freshly ground pepper, to tasteOlive Oil 1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk 3 tablespoons peanut butter 4 tablespoons. brown sugar, packed, 2 teaspoon...

When I find something I like, I want to share it with everyone! So, from time to time I will post about some of my favorite things. Here is what I am crazy about now.... First, let me just say I am VERY picky about my candles. It is weird I know but I like what I like. So, when my friend, Michelle, started making her candles in these cute jars and with the colors I LOVED, I had to try it out. They smell wonderful!!! Check her out if you get a chance. www.myspace.com/HandAcandles Ok, onto my second new... Continue reading

Run don't walk to your nearest HEB and pick up a butternut squash today! I bought one last week to make this puree and boy am I glad I did. It was so good and even better E-A-S-Y! First, you will need one butternut squash. Slice it in half and scoop out all the seeds. Lay it on a sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven and bake for about 30-40 minutes or until soft. Scoop out the yummy center and put in food processor or blender (whichever you... Continue reading

It can't be, two posts in one week! Have I gone mad? Nope...blame it on the cold weather I guess! On Sunday I decided to look up recipes for Beer Bread. I have always heard it was good but never really thought about making it so, off to search google. There were a TON of recipes but, I found one that I liked on Recipezaar.com. It couldn't have been easier and it was FANTASTIC! The next time I make homemade vegetable soup I will definitely have this on the side. BEER BREAD 1 hour | 3 min prep (It really... Continue reading

I love to cook, I really do BUT baking has not always been my thing. When I see yeast on a recipe, I turn the page..can't do it! So, I decided to conquer my fear of yeast and do some homemade cinnamon rolls. They turned out really good and not hard at all. Time consuming but not intimidating and something I think I can do. Let's get started!! Cinnamon Rolls 1/4 cup warm water, 110 F (I just run the water until it just gets hot) One packet active dry yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons) 1 cup plus 1 teaspoon sugar...

If your grocery store has a bulk section check it out. I buy all of my spices, grains, nuts, dried fruit at a fraction of the cost. I know that HEB in Atascocita has one so next time you are there take a look! Continue reading

I've had a couple of cooking classes with risotto and they have been a BIG hit! The first one I had was a "mock" class and I invited some girlfriends over for a little trial run. We had a blast and I think I made some risotto lovers out of them! I gravitate toward dishes that sound complicated but couldn't be easier. As long as you have the ingredients on hand anything's possible. Here are some pics from that class...thanks Viv!! Olive Tapenade Crostini and Brie with Cherry Preserves Mixed greens salad with pears, pecans, and Balsamic Vinaigrette The girls... Continue reading

A couple of weekends ago my husband and I had a little date night. We decided to head to Hubbell and Hudson in The Woodlands. If you've never been your in for a treat. Go with a group of girlfriends or drag along the hubby, you won't be disappointed. While we were there we decided to pick up a steak and boy, am I glad we did. They have a dry aged beef counter. This is something I have heard of in restaurants but never in my grocery store! Since we had such a fancy steak I decided to go... Continue reading

The Supper Club is a new venture for me but I am very excited to see where it takes me. It is off to a great start and I hope... Continue reading
