Peanut Butter Pie

Right now, I’m on a mini road trip from Little Rock, Arkansas to Austin, Texas. Don’t worry, I’m not the one driving as I write this. I’ve been traveling as much as ever, without a kitchen most days, save for the times when friends and family let me take over theirs. As many people witnessed, the food blogging world erupted in Peanut Butter Pies on Friday. It was to hold […]

Saucy Shrimp Recipe

When I was in Arkansas I made a new friend. And one night, while we all were digesting our 237th feast, she told us about this recipe she’d dreamed up using shrimp she’d had. It was smothered in scallions and tomatoes and lots and lots of butter. She agreed to make it for us as soon as possible. Feast number 238 was scheduled. What I like about this is that […]

Dewberry Bread Pudding

I had quite the 4th of July weekend. It began with a long road trip from Austin to Arkansas. I drove the entire span of Arkansas and I marveled at how different it is depending on where you are in the state. It was purty country. The weekend can best be described as Foodapalooza. There have been so many divine dishes that I’m going to share with you over the […]

Raise your hand if you’ve been turkey hunting this season! Or raise your hand if you like turkey! Because this recipe works perfectly with both domestic and wild birds.

Beurre Blanc

Butter sauce, that is, in English speak. Butter is such a magical thing, don’t you think? I call it udder nectar. Sometimes. Only with people who know me well, like you for example. But I usually don’t call it that at a first encounter. You see, we get so caught up in recipes, but sometimes it can be simpler than that. Sometimes butter sauce is all you need to “enlighten” […]

Morels in Marsala

The morel is my favorite mushroom. I think it is its richness and wonderful hearty texture that I like so much. The morel forces you to really chew it. They have a honeycomb type construction. And hollow stems. I spent many an hour trimming the stems and cleaning off the hard bits in my restaurant days. But I’ll never forget those morel and Marsala stew smells wafting through the kitchen […]

Braised Pheasant Legs with Cabbage and Grapes

Standing in the fields at Joshua Creek was a special kind of experience. There is a mystical quality in the rooster pheasant as he shoots into the air like a feathered arrow, in all his green and red and purple, and speckled brown-black. The long spike of his tail feathers taper for aerodynamic flight and he leans to his side and paints the wind. You hesitate when you see the […]

Jalapeño Grits

As you may know by now, based on the affair I’ve been having with sriracha, and my infatuation with chicken wings… I like spicy foods. I love spicy foods. I would make sacrifices for spicy foods. I think I’ve run out of hot sauces to try. Well I thought I did, but then my friend Amy just gifted me some that she brought back from vacation somewhere tropical… and I […]
