With the holidays around the corner comes the craving for sweets and makes me think of my favorite scones with dried cranberries and orange zest. They are so easy to make and taste just like they came from a pastry shop. I don’t usually do breakfast but I will make an exception for a scone to go with my morning coffee. They are so tasty with an orange glaze drizzled over the top.

This recipe goes out to the Winsor family who have a special place in my heart. Through the years I have sat at their table while they assembled tortillas, sauce, meat and cheese to make enough enchiladas to feed a whole crew. I have been tinkering with making my own red enchilada sauce and I think I finally have the right combination of chiles and spice to make a sauce worthy of sharing. I made the sauce a day ahead and that made the enchiladas fast and easy to assemble the next day. Continue reading

They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Joe would prefer breakfast over any meal. He’s an early riser and I’m not a morning person so he rarely ever gets a hot breakfast first thing in the morning. I frequently make breakfast for dinner because I know how much he loves it. This pizza has bacon, crispy sliced potatoes and eggs over a layer of cheddar cheese that’s good any time of day. Continue reading

When November arrives, so does my sweet tooth. I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s the colder weather and wanting an excuse to stay in the kitchen and bake. The warmth of the oven calls me to the kitchen and keeps me sane during the long winter month’s. So when I saw the “One Day Sale” for raspberries I ran to the store and stocked up and came home to bake some muffins. I had an old recipe that I had saved from Cooking Light that I had always wanted to try. The recipe definitely is a keeper and I added a lemon glaze because I love the combo of raspberries and lemon. Whether you like a muffin with your morning coffee or as a dessert this raspberry muffin will definitely satisfy any sweet cravings.

Have you ever paired BLT with pasta? If you haven’t yet, then you’ve got to try this pasta. This is my go to pasta when I need a pick me up and one of our favorite comfort foods. There are different versions of BLT Pasta but I like the combination of crisp bacon, roasted tomatoes and pesto.

We always save some of the biggest and best Hatch Chiles just for chile rellenos. I like the traditional rellenos stuffed with cheese. They can be stuffed with almost anything but there’s something about cutting into that batter fried chile and seeing all that cheese ooze out. You know it’s gonna be good! And they must have toppings. We had pico de gallo and chile pequin salsa but you can top yours with whatever you want. This recipe comes from “The Food of Santa Fe”.

The pequin chile is a small dried chile that packs quite a punch on the heat scale. My mouth waters just thinking about it. It’s so hot that you have to eat it fast and keep eating it because if you stop for just a second you will immediately start feeling the burn. This pequin salsa is hotter than I’m used to but the flavor is so good I’ve become addicted to it. Continue reading
