Bacon Maple Pecan Shortbread

March 24, 2011

These days I have an overabundance of two things in my fridge: pecans and bacon. My parents grew up around pecan trees, and although they don’t have any on their property there are a LOT of people in the neighborhood who have them but don’t want to take the time to pick them off the […]

Triple Threat Beans

March 23, 2011

Beans, beans, they’re good for the heart.  The more you eat the more you…   I just had to get it out there, but I’ll spare you all of the other goofy beans-lead-to-farting jokes I’ve been privy to. For those of you who are foodies you’ll totally get this next statement.  I have been wondering […]

Right out of college I went to work for Starbucks in their management training program, and ever since have had a slight obsession with all things coffee.  I would even venture to say that I’m a coffee snob, except that if I need caffeine I’m willing to drink gas station and McDonald’s coffee too.   […]

March 18, 2011

Bailey’s Brownies with Irish Coffee Buttercream

March 18, 2011
