Let It Be Sunday, 462!

Buckle up, friends because we’ve got some NEWS.  Your girl (that’s me!) is a Texas homeowner! And not just any Texas home… because what fun would that be?  The next Bakehouse is a grand old gal – a Victorian home, in Bellville, Texas built in 1888 by August Haak. I knew I wanted to get out of town, find enough grass to mow that I’d need a riding...

Let It Be Sunday, 461!

Hello, friends! One of my kids is riddled with anxiety which, of course, stresses me out. So anxious is his entire little generation—these Covidians—that they named the new character in this summer’s Inside Out sequel Anxiety.

Not all of them...

Crème Fraiche Quiche Lorraine

Someone recently asked me what my desert island cookbook would be. You know… the one cookbook so dear to you, you’d take it as your sole cookbook to be stranded on a dessert island. Logically I should opt for a book with advice on building fires, catching fish and climbing coconut trees but, I’m envisioning a more Gilligan’s Island desert island situation...

Lemon Poppy Seed Kolache

As you know, I’ve entered my kolache era.  Here’s a twist on a classic kolache recipe using an enriched dough with a lemon curd and poppy seed twist. They’re a perfect springtime Texas pastry. I have this daydream that one day in the not so distant future I’ll be slingin’ kolaches and coffee in my little backyard bakery.  I can’t tell if it’s a daydream...
