“I Cracker” And A Giveaway

I’ve been thinking a lot about Rome lately in anticipation of our upcoming trip to Italy. As J. says “Rome is like an onion. You just keep peeling back layers and there’s always more to discover.” Of course there are endless sights that I hope to some day see, but I can’t help myself from […]

Royal Wedding Scones

I thought I had my absolute favorite scone recipe and it’s still right up near the top of my list, but there’s a serious contender for the title-the royal wedding scone-that I found on Food 52. I saw it a while back and hesitated trying it, thinking that it couldn’t come near to my old stand […]

Empanadas

I realize that empanadas are not at all Southwestern (more Latin American), but I thought that it would be nice to have a little hand pie before our posole dinner last week. Various countries have their own version (think Cornish pasties or Italian  panzerotti) and you can certainly put your own spin on this recipe. […]
