Christmas Presents

So the above pun was intended (sorry about that). This morning I was on the Doug Stephan Show and had a wonderful time talking about music and law! If you missed the broadcast this morning, you can hear the highlight on the Doug Stephan Show Audio Highlights righthand bar. You'll find out why I only Read More

Jazzy Duets for Christmas

Finals are finally over for me and I realized I haven't talked much about my newest album that I released with Jacob Potter: Jazzy Duets for Christmas! Tomorrow at 7:25 AM CST I'll be talking with Doug Stephan on the Doug Stephan Show about the album. Tune in here! It's a great EP of Christmas Read More

Peach Galette

Peach Gallette

Don't you just love fresh peaches? I do! So much so that I went a little overboard and bought a whole box from a farm stand! The peaches were wonderful, but I soon found I needed to make a lot of peach dishes before the peaches spoiled. So I decided to put together a peach Read More

Poppy Seed Muffin Tops

This is an adaptation of the poppy seed bread recipe I posted in an earlier blog. Muffin tops are so much easier than the loaves of bread--and they are easy to share! Though I do still like the little loaves, I no longer have to worry about whether the loaf pans are greased enough to Read More

Rhubarb Crumble

Rhubarb Crumble

Do you know if rhubarb is a vegetable or a fruit? Technically, rhubarb is a vegetable. But rhubarb is used in desserts so much that it seems like it should be a fruit. This is the reverse quandary of the tomato, which is technically a fruit, but is used as a vegetable. Sometimes the world Read More

Viennese Raspberry Cookies

Do the members of your family each have a favorite cookie? Viennese raspberry cookies have always been my younger brother's favorite! Even as a little kid, his palette enjoyed the light and fluffy meringue that tops this delectable cookie. I discovered a secret to keeping these cookies delectably intact. Put the tray of uncut cookies in the Read More

Cream Cheese Pancakes

Did you notice it has been a little while since my last post? This is what happens when my life gets crazy juggling law school, performing, and recording ... but I still do prepare and eat yummy food! I can't wait to share these cream cheese pancakes with you. I happened upon them--and what a Read More

Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Don't you love peanuts? I do! So anytime I can put more peanuts in a cookie, I'm all for it. When it comes to peanuts, less is definitely not more! Even though this recipe uses unsalted peanuts, I couldn't help but remember "Salt Peanuts" played by Dizzy Gillespie. So take a listen and enjoy the Read More

Mincemeat Bars

Mincemeat Bars

Who says mincemeat is only for December holidays? Mincemeat bars a family favorite. In truth, I think they are generally an acquired taste. The flavors are just a bit different from other bar cookies. I love them cold, preferably after they've sat for about five minutes after being in the freezer. The flavors are intensified Read More
