Habanero Jelly Grilled Cheese

Pepper Jelly Grilled Turkey SandwichIt is difficult to name a sandwich something other than what it is. I always end up sounding like I’m making a sexual reference or trying to be clever. But Habanero Jelly Bacon Turkey Grilled Brie Sourdough Sandwich is too long, no matter how accurate it may be. I believe my grandmother would have called it The Land ‘O Goshen, due to its decadence, messiness, and overall superiority in the field of turkey sandwich creations. I’ve gone with Habanero Jelly Grilled Cheese for simplicity. But it certainly seems like a verbal bucket of cold water compared to the real thing.

Cornmeal strikes…

Bluebonnets in Clay County

Just because I’m not writing about it doesn’t mean I’m not cooking. I’m cooking. I’ve simply been cooking to feed, not necessarily to create. Sometimes, when you’ve put 300 some odd recipes out in the ether, you need to sit back and enjoy them. So I’ve been doing what you have hopefully been doing now…

Edible Eggs: A Strawberry Omelet

Edible Dallas & Fort Worth gave me free reign to do egg recipes for this issue. I ran with it. I love eggs. I love them scrambled, fried, hard-boiled, poached, deviled and just about any other way you can think of to make them. But doing recipes for Edible also meant that I got to…

I’ve seen them in cookbooks forever. There is not a lot of variation. They are what they are…wonderful. There are several things I’ve done over the…
