Fresh Fig Bread

A friend blessed me with some fresh figs and I was not sure what to do with them. I decided to make some fig bread it’s kinda like zucchini bread but with fresh figs. Ingredients: 1-1/2 cup fresh figs (remove stems and chop fine) 1/4 cup dry sherry (I used cognac) 1-2/3 cup A/P flour…

Pan Pizza

This is what I would consider a successful home pizza. No fancy measuring, no pizza peel, none of that complicated stuff. My mom stopped by and had a couple of pieces and said “really good” several times. Last nights Tamale Pie didn’t turn out how I wanted, alot of time with marginal results. Dejected but…

Pecan pie

My Grandma (Nanny) had some pecan trees in her back yard and she made the best pies. I have been working at the same place for the last fifteen years and found out we have 3 trees on the property. I knew we had one because of the squirrels but there were 2 more I…

Homemade Pizza #57

Start with a whole head of washed cauliflower and remove the green leafy parts and stem. Cut into quarters and cut each stem partially, break apart at the flower end. I like to break them so they look more natural than cutting all the way thru. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees, place the cauliflower…
