While the Texas Hill Country is well known for its peaches, it is becoming increasingly known for its lavender farms as well.
This is so easy to make! What a dish from Chef Byron Bergeron of the Fig Tree. The best part is that you can buy a pre-made Crème Brulee from H-E-B or Central Market, and then dress it up with these caramelized bananas.
Colorful cupcakes of every kind…that taste as good as they look! ‘Icing’ is a fun bakery, started by three high school friends. They met up at high school reunion a few years back and discovered they all loved to bake…and Icing was born! They’ve taken family recipes and many others and come up with some truly unique cupcakes for children’s parties, weddings and corporate events.
Welcome to Texas y’all! This is the most delicious dessert from the Cabernet Grilll in Fredericksburg…Chicken Fried Pecan Pie with Chocolate Jack Daniels ice cream!! It may sound ‘unusual’ but as you as can see, I couldn’t wait to taste it. Lucky for our photographer there was something left!!! You can make the pie and the ice cream ahead of time. Enjoy!
Lidia prepared this dessert in my kitchen! When I first heard we were making a dessert with slices of bread, my initial reaction was ‘really?…bread?’. This dessert is fabulous. The flavors of the espresso,chocolate and rum come together beautifully and then, the toasted almonds, dark chocolate and whipped cream…yum, need I say more. I’ll let […]
Dark, rich chocolate is just one of the reasons to try this incredible molten cake from Boudro’s. The other reason: a sprinkle of ancho chili powder in the center for a real kick!
Since I’m a Texas Tech grad I always think of Messina Hof as the Aggie wine…only because it’s located in Aggieland. But these wines are much better than the Aggies football team. JUST KIDDING Aggie fans! Messina Hof truly does make some good wine. I enjoy their ’04 Papa Paolo Port…it’s a labor of love […]
Creamy, fresh and delicious…this shake is everything you expect from a cool Summer craving. Enjoy!
Fredericksburg peaches. Nothing says ‘summer’ quite like those two words. This light and flaky recipe from the Fig Tree uses fresh Fredericksburg peaches…in a fabulous way. It’s easy to make too! Enjoy! For the pastry shells: Cut puff pastry into 8 pieces. Roll out each piece 1/8” thick and line 8 no-stick tart pans. Remove […]
As light as air…that’s one way to describe these delightful French macaroons…filled with vanilla buttercream. The pastry chef at Olivette at the Houstonian Hotel and Spa shared this recipe with me. Just perfect for a light holiday dessert!
This is a delicious dessert that I recently tried at a new friend’s home. We met because of our common love of wine and food, or should I say food and wine–maybe it was right the first time. 🙂 In any event, she’s this gorgeous blonde who’s probably a size 2, doesn’t have to work […]
Strong summertime and Fredericksburg peaches go hand in hand. This recipe is so simple, but the resulting cobbler is delicious. Serve it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream sprinkled with cinnamon. Talk about good taste!
The best Tiramisu I’ve ever had was in Switzerland. I’ve experimented with recipes over the years trying to duplicate that creamy delight – after a couple of modifications I came up with this – it’s fabulous! (warning-the egg yolks are not cooked). Preheat oven to 375°F. Arrange ladyfingers on baking sheet. Bake until toasted, about […]
Method: Place the chocolate in a bowl. Bring the cream just to a boil. Pour the hot cream over the chocolate and let sit for a minute or two. Whisk the chocolate and cream together until thoroughly mixed. Let cool completely. Wrap with plastic and let sit over night at room temperature. The next day […]
This is a delicious recipe from Myron’s Prime Steak House in New Braunfels. You will love this simple recipe, that really looks like you went to a lot of work!
