Cool Weather Cooking


The weather is cooler, and for me, that means more time in the kitchen. I enjoy cooking, but in cool weather, I like it even more so.

I am very  honored to be in the current Where Women Cook, not once, but twice! 

I did the Ingredients of the Season feature (my ingredients were apples and pecans) and Where Women Cook also featured my Christmas Stollen.

I was extra surprised, as I shot the stollen feature more than a year ago, but I think the publication knew the perfect time to present it. If you aren't familiar with Where Women Cook, I sure wish you would  take a moment and click on the link and get a little familiar with it. They feature just ordinary cooks like me, famous cooks like Ree Drummand (Pioneer Woman), while offering tons of great tips, recipes, and ideas for entertaining. You can also order back issues for those of you who may be new to the publication. 

I thought you might enjoy a few images from the publication as well as some that didn't get published.  

This is an apple/carrot soup with apple peel rose as a garnish.

Spicy lime and chipotle pecans.  

Praline Apple bread and pecan honey butter.

Baked spicy apple slices and salted caramel dip.

Surprise spice caramel core apple:

And some Christmas Stollen images....old fashion German sweet bread in an old fashion setting: 

I love this time of year. It is a season of spectacular, or simplicity. Either way, it is scrumptious. The recipes are in Where Women Cook and as well as many, many more!

I would like to thank Jo Packham (editor) for allowing simple cooks, as myself, to grace the pages of her fab magazine. I love to learn from those who are so much more experienced than me, but also knowing that the publication also recognizes those of us who just enjoy the art of cooking, well, inspires me because I can point at the recipe and think, I can do that too!

Until next time, may your ovens be warm, your rolling pin floured-covered, and your hands sticky with something scrumptious.

from my house to your house,

I love cool weather cooking too; you can't beat comfort food!

Your photos are lovely. I'd like to follow you around for a day or two on a photo shoot and learn from you. Your props are always so wonderful, and your shots are divine!

Outrageously gorgeous photography and food that looks so delicious. That pecan praline butter, those apple peel rosettes, the stollen in the simple setting with lace panel - just to name a few that really caught my eye.

Simple? Yes...simply brilliant!
Not to fawn, but honey chile...in my world you are the rock star to end all rock stars when it comes to presentations. Whether it be food or antiques, you are just the best at what you set your mind to do.

With the cool temps it's so nice to be back in the kitchen baking (and hearing "ooh something smells good) when family arrives home ♥

Congratulations on both features in Where Women Cook! Have a wonderful weekend xo

Thank you for making my visit cozy, looking forward to colder days and cozying up with your site.

Lots of love,

Oh I can almost spell the apples baking! Your photos have such vibrant colors and are all so tantalizing. I want to sample everything you made.

Salted caramel dip? The icing on the cake!

Congratulations on your feature in the magazine. I can't wait to pick up my copy!

I got my copy as soon as it came out in the stands and I love it. Your pictures are beautiful and I will be making some of your recipes if not all of them for sure.
