Make cinnamon rolls from scratch

Fall is slowly starting to arrive. Now that it’s not as hot, I don’t mind that the oven heats up the kitchen. Making cakes, pies and cookies, you fill your kitchen with comforting aromas. While baking is not my favorite, every now and then I get the itch to pull out the stand mixer and crank up the oven. Cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite breakfast meals. Yes, I’m guilty of buying pre-made rolls from the store. More often than I care to admit, I grab a tube of cinnamon roll dough so I can make some fresh out of the oven. While both can be tasty, nothing taste better than making some from s ..read more

Change up usual surf and turf

Surf and Turf is often thought of as a steak with a seafood component. I want to change that misconception. Surf can be any seafood and turf any land animal meat. Shrimp and sausage is a perfect combination. You can often find this combination in gumbos and jambalayas. Today, I want to share with you a couple of Surf and Turf recipes using these popular proteins. The first, Shrimp Gravy with Sausage over Cheese Grits, is straight from the kitchen. The second, Shrimp and Sausage Skewers, comes fresh off the grill. So collect your ingredients and Let’s head to the kitchen, or to the yard! Shri ..read more

Try nontraditional pie recipe

When it comes to baking pies, I usually stick to two recipes, My mom’s Fudge Pie and Pecan Pie. I’m not a big fan of fruit pies, having the occasional Lemon Ice Box Pie. Life would be boring if I didn’t occasionally branch out and try new recipes. With that in mind, I have uncovered a couple of non-traditional pie recipes. The first one is a somewhat traditional fruit pie, Brown Butter-Fig Pie. The second one, Peanut Butter, Banana and Chocolate Girl Scout Pie, is a little more whimsical with the use of  America’s favorite fund-raising cookies. So go to the store and get your ingredients ..read more
