02 Apr Pulled Pork BBQ Breakfast Sandwich

I will now employ a series of Texas cliches to convince you that this is a typical breakfast for us. You see, in Texas everything is bigger, including our breakfast sandwiches. We all ride around on horses and start our morning moving hay stacks and mending bard wire fences. Our jeans are tight and our belt buckles huge. We speak in cowboy slang and with long drawls. In Texas our food pyramid is simply the…

18 Mar Lemon Thyme Biscuits

Clocks ticking, time passing, and idle thoughts fill busy minds. I wait and watch, wondering what’s next, eyes caught by another tick and tock of another worn watch. Deadlines, resolutions, “you’re late”s. Schedules, calendars and to-do lists.

I sometimes worry more about what time I…

07 Mar Classic Cheeseburger

Cook burgers 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare, 5-6 for medium well. Only flip the burger…

04 Mar Lemon Oat Bourbon Cake Doughnuts

Cake Doughnuts: My favorite cake doughnuts are dense, moist and crumbly. To do this you are essentially making a pound cake batter and simply baking it in a cake doughnut form. Also to achieve this texture, a specific mixing method is required (leavening depends almost solely the air incorporated into the batter rather than the small amount of baking soda). Take care to follow the instructions carefully and not deflate the batter while mixing in the…

03 Mar Spring Break

March is a time of renewal. Winter is inching to an end, and the sun is beginning to shine. And even with the crazy weather patterns over the last six months, a break from the cold should be near. This time of year becomes a time of yearning for an old college spring break–the days of heading off to a warm, tropical locale for some fun in the sun. But since that trip no longer…

28 Feb Three Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

These are grilled cheeses for slow, lumbering sundays, days when you crave a delicious sandwich and have an hour or two to kill making it. These are not your mother’s grilled cheese sandwiches and these are not just another typical grilled cheese. A note about my cooking recipes: With a few exceptions (see the sweet wine reduction below), you will notice I don’t give  specific amounts to ingredients in a recipe. While exacting measurements are…
