Birthday Feasting

Yesterday was my birthday, and I actually made and ate one of my favorite recipes on my blog  Sweet ‘n’ Sticky Baby Back Ribs. I started thinking of what other things I would eat for a birthday feast, and came up with a menu for my birthday. Mind you, I didn’t actually make all of […]

Brown Sugar-Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Brown Sugar-Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Brown Sugar-Vanilla Frozen Yogurt is actually the ingredient list. Brown sugar + vanilla + yogurt = creamy and tangy goodness.

Olive Oil Cake with Pine Nuts and Currants

I’ve been teaching cooking classes at the Le Cordon Bleu culinary school, and recently we did a series on Italian regional cooking. One of the recipes that made an impression on me was a Tuscan Pine Nut Cake. Very moist and flavorful, this was the kind of cake to serve not just after a meal, […]

Wild California Halibut Ceviche | Black Girl's Chef Whites

Wild California Halibut Ceviche

  I came to the fish lovers table fairly late. Growing up during the 1970’s, fish was usually an overcooked, under-seasoned,  grey looking piece of protein I pushed around my plate while pretending to eat. But those were also the days of the clean plate club, so I was often forced to eat a lot […]

Oven Fried Catfish Ingredients

Oven Fried Pecan Crusted Catfish

Catfish is one of my favorite types of fish to eat.  Because they are bottom feeders, I have heard people say they taste like mud, but that has never been my experience.  If you catch your own catfish it may indeed taste muddy, not to mention it may be full of pesticides and pollution from […]
