What’s Up With Me….AND Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie

So….I have been catching up on projects the last couple of days and I am happy to report that everything has been crossed off my list.  Well, most everything anyway.  I did start the weed eater ONLY because I already have an insane number of chigger bites and don’t think I could mentally deal with… Continue reading What’s Up With Me….AND Pumpkin Cream Cheese Pie

Apricot Walnut Tarts With Cream Cheese Topping

Opened the freezer-a box of puff pastry fell on my foot-must have been a sign that I needed to bake somethin’.  These tarts were experimental but I documented the ingredients and steps as I made them.  I figured if they turned out less than perfect then the cream cheese topping would be there to save the… Continue reading Apricot Walnut Tarts With Cream Cheese Topping

They hail from Hatch ,New Mexico (Chile Capital of the World) and are JUST RIGHT-mild and not too spicy. Time to stock up on these peppers and pepper products because one month out of the year just ain’t enough. It was fate that I… Continue reading Hatch Chile Dog With Avocado Cream Cheese

Peach-Blueberry Mini Cheesecakes For Two

‘Always believe something wonderful is about to happen‘ Another recipe detour.  Originally I had planned to use bananas instead of peaches because my Mama used to make a blueberry, banana cheesecake with a graham cracker crust that was out of this world.  All I had were frozen bananas and that was not going to work… Continue reading Peach-Blueberry Mini Cheesecakes For Two
