Sausage Kolache

I had never eaten a Kolache before moving here. They were not a common offering in West Texas. You can buy them in parts of Central Texas but most of them are more like Danish than what we have here.  In this area you get sausage and cheese Kolache in either spicy or regular and…

Hobbit Day the expanded addition!

I did a post on Hobbit Day and how it came about in my house as a teenager a year or so ago but I thought I would expand on the idea. So if your family is like ours then you have phones and game systems and DS systems, and Hulu, and Netflix and laptops,…

Green Tomato Pizza

It was a pretty good year for our tomato plants but they fizzled out early and I was left with a lot of small green tomatoes. Too small to fry much to the sorrow of Gavin but he came up with another option…green tomato sauce for pizza! It was easy to make, mostly bubbling away…

Cherry and Ginger Muffins

I adore muffins because they are so easy to make and the flavors are endless! Another plus is that the wee beasties in my life love them. I am using crystallized ginger in this and it should be easy to find in most spice sections. If you have trouble you can visit Penzeys online and…
