David Eyre’s Pancake aka Puffy Pancake

Awhile back, I declared, after eating the delightful Blackberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles that I made, that this might be the year of the popsicle. Well, I haven’t made one since. But I noticed I’ve been making an awful lot of pancakes; it just snuck up on me. So maybe this is the year of the pancake, instead.

Easy White Chicken Chili

I happen to have a couple of White Chicken Chili recipes on my blog, so I’m not real sure how I got inspired to make this one…a hint of fall coming, maybe? Yep. I said it. I’m glad I made this Chili, though, because Easy White Chicken Chili’s serious deliciousness.

Mongolian Barbecue Noodle Bowls

My folks love their nearby “Mongolian” Barbecue place, HuHot. They’re wild about it…but the cost makes me crazy, especially for what they get – which is delicious, no doubt, but is basically (for them) a big bowl of noodles with about an ounce of meat. Could I do better at home? You tell me…

Peach Glazed Pork Tenderloin

Blogging is weird sometimes. Which I hope I can say if you follow me, and apologize for doing so you’re someone who just stopped by in like 10 years to look at this recipe. But I make food, take a pic or two (or like a hundred, hoping to get a good one) and put it out there. And it’s kind of like having someone over for dinner. “Will you like it?” I wonder. Oh the angst.

Enchiladas con Carne

Those of you who know me know I’m kind of a sucker for Mexican food. Or Southwestern. Or Tex-Mex. When I saw these old school Tex-Mex type enchiladas pop up in an email from the New York Times, I was all over it. Enchiladas con Carne from El Real Tex-Mex in Houston.
