I just ran out of this lemonade. It is/was so delicious. It’s the second batch I’ve made this month. What you see there in the picture is what I just finished drinking. I posted about it on Facebook last time I had some; “I have unlocked the secret to sweet lemonade. Nectar!” It’s true. I [...]
I have found in the last year or so that I have focused mainly on the basics while cooking. And by the basics, I mean food that we are going to eat immediately. In other words it’s not food that I’m making because I have the desire to see “if I can make that.” So [...]
Toast is the perfect food. I love toast. It’s so simple, so satisfying and SO adaptable. I love garlic toast, dry toast, cheese toast, but my sweetest fondest toast memories are of French toast, and third grade. My mother never made French toast. It was a very special (to me) dish that my neighbor’s dad [...]
Those of you who know me IRL, or are friends with me on the twitters, you have heard. Last month, actually January, we had to end Frank’s suffering and make the heart wrenching decision to release him to spirit. It was a beautiful sunny crisp day. He was in a good mood, but steroids do [...]
Oh George! It IS chicken and rice! I have been meaning to make George some treats and the other night they just came together. Oh and that’s not the Duck Dynasty dog exactly, it’s his cousin. My sweet Standard Poodle, George. Insiders have always known Geo came from Baton Rouge- home of some of the finest [...]
I’ve been quiet lately. There were holidays and ANOTHER another surgery (yes, another since November- that’s three in 9 months for those of you who are keeping score). I am healing nicely thank you, and I have been cooking a little in the last few months. I’ve also spent a great deal of time sleeping [...]
I adore pear cake. Okay, I adore all most cake. I especially adore cakes that impersonate healthy foods. This is one of those. It has PEARS! Everyone knows pears are super healthy, full of fiber and of course, delicious. This is a delicious moist wonderful cake/bread. I found the recipe here. I added a cup or so of toasted pecans [...]
IT’S ALIVE! Yes, I made it through the surgery and my shoulder is healing. It’s not fun I’m not going to bacon-grease coat it for you but I am definitely on the other side! Speaking of bacon grease- I glazed these cute little treats with bacon grease once they were almost done then I popped them back in [...]
I’ll be out for a couple weeks my dear friends. My right shoulder has a date with a surgeon. Please do come back by in the middle of the month, there’s no telling what fun posts the painkillers will bring! Until then, cook stuff! (and send me pics!!) d.
You might remember I won a scholarship to the online cooking school. You might remember my pies on America’s Test Kitchen’s The Feed. You will probably remember the DarlaCooks’ Reader’s contest I held, thanks to America’s Test Kitchen, for 2 sixty day online cooking school memberships. I have chosen the winners out of the big hat: Congratulations [...]
This is a recipe from Bon Appetit Magazine. My “friend on instagram” name will be inserted when I remember made the pie. I saw it in the August issue too and when I saw his picture I knew I would try it! The recipe calls for a crust and offers an alternative recipe I of [...]
Make this easy “LAZY” coffee on your countertop over night. You already know I really dig these multi-day techniques. They make me feel so productive, as if I am multi-tasking all day and night. Here’s a good base recipe: 80z medium grind coffee for every gallon of water. Mix room temperature water and coffee. Let it [...]

Sometimes you just need brownies. You know what I mean? Sometimes it just feels good to make brownies. So familiar and chocolatey. A comforting dish to make. (and eat!) I had that feeling the other day, I just wanted to make brownies. I went back to a recipe that I’ve been playing with for a [...]
Today is the best day of the year to make GHEE! You probably know ghee as clarified butter. But it’s more than clarified butter it’s super clarified butter! It’s spiritualized clarified butter! Ghee is the best thing in the whole wide world. It’s great on toast, on bread, as a base to everything you sauté [...]
July 3, 2012 is a very special full moon- In many Hindu based belief systems it is known as Guru Purnima “The Guru’s Moon.” This is the time we look back at our year, review our spiritual progress, renew our intention and determination on the path, and Honor the Guru! (it is also the BEST [...]
