Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Mango Puree

Buttermilk Panna Cotta with Mango Puree

Sometimes dessert is just not optional.  I mean, there are days that I just need something a little sweet…nothing fussy or overly sweet…just a little something special at the end of the day.   During hot summer days, I love something cool, light and refreshing […]

Rum Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Rum Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

The Cowboys’ favorite cookie is old fashioned peanut butter…well until now.   I never though there could be another cookie he would like as much as the beloved peanut butter but I was dead wrong.  Ever since I made my Mango Pecan cookies all I […]

My Favorite Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits

My Favorite Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits

Making biscuits around these parts is like a right of passage.  It was one of the first things I remember baking with my mom.  She always liked her biscuits thin and kind of crispy.  As I got older I came up with my own favorite […]

Slow Simmered Pinto Beans

Blackened Shrimp Tacos

Blackened Shrimp Tacos
