10 Mar Honey Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Soft, chewy, and packed with sweet flavor. These big, flat honey cinnamon oatmeal cookies are a snack you won’t be able to put down. Packed with sweet honey and loaded with cinnamon, these cookies are flavorful.   It is no secret I love cookies. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve started at least six cookie posts with that exact line. Either I bake way too many cookies – unlikely – or I need to take a…

17 Sep Cinnamon Twists in Small Town Texas

Grey rivers of billowing clouds meander low in the sky, scraping along the tall pines and rogue radio towers dotting the east Texas landscape.  Rachmaninov whispers through the speakers but I’m listening to the crows, singing southern bugs, distant roosters and the quiet hiss of wind speeding around the trees. I struggle to control my incessant yawning and heavy eyes. The morning has barely started and I’m already miles away from home. A blur of…

13 Feb Chocolate Molten Cake

Laughter carries its light, frivolous tones through the fresh air. The clumsy patter of untied, barely-velcrowed shoes tap against the dry ages-old worn dirt path trickling through a clover field. A monumental jump lifts dirty grey shoes and tattered bluejeans high over two friends huddled around a patch of green, their small eyes searching for a lucky four leaf clover. A quick duck and a low hanging pine branch is just missed. Side to side…

16 Jan Kitchen 101: Measuring

It’s a new year. Obligations, jobs and day to day happenings are roaring back to life. Massive contrived meals around that rarely used dining room table are traded in for small comfortable dinners in the breakfast room or at the couch as we bid adieu to the holidays and say hello to the warm-welcomed mundane. We celebrated 2011 with a cacophony of flavors and dishes we spent the year perfecting, slaving over, tasting time and…

28 Dec Winter Days and Cinnamon Pecan Butter Cookies

My curious, gold-rimmed hazel eyes dance about the barely green landscape hoping to catch a dragonfly as it bumbles about lone flowers and swaths of grass. Greens are traded for tall brown pillars as my eyes move up towards the sky following long gangly branches. I now look for a cardinal performing his majestic mating call and dance or perhaps a great white egret mid-flight. Light, brisk winds carry waves of golden-brown leaves through the…

14 Nov Bourbon Spice Cake

Newly fallen leaves crunch below tightly laced shoes while hoodies and sweaters hide favorite t-shirts. Red and yellow begin to dot the landscape as piles of color are tediously constructed by neighbors tidying their littered lawns. Brisk winds carry in cold nights. The smell of near and distant fireplaces roaring to life fill the dark, frigid air. Leftover unwanted candy, once passed out to masqueraded kids, is packed away high up in a pantry to…

09 Nov Bourbon Apple Meringue Pie

The soft, airy white mountain stacked high parts as the heavy fork sinks through it with ease. I separate a bite, lifting the shockingly-light mass up to my eager mouth – I resist the desire to simply mold and sculpt this delightfully feathery structure. As if by magic the moist cotton candy like treat dissolves into thin air as it hits my tongue, leaving a faint sweet taste behind. I drop my fork back to…

02 Oct Rum Caramel Chocolate Cinnamon Cupcakes

Curious noses, eager eyes, rummaging hands and hungry stomachs lead a march of men through my kitchen. First to the near-empty cookie jar, they congregate, their eyes become concerned. With a shuffle they move to the glass domed cake stand. It sits empty; hungry stomachs become worried. “Don’t worry, y’all,” I assure my five hungry friends, “I’ve got some cupcakes in the oven now.” Eyes perk again and smirks pierce faces. The five guys leave,…
