Mexican Buñuelos - Cinnamon and Sugar Fritters #SundaySupper

Most Latin countries have some version of sweet fritters called buñelos. These crunchy, round Mexican-style buñelos are the version I know and love. These golden-fried goodies are made fresh and sold in many locally owned and chain bakeries in my neck of the woods, but they are a cinch to make at home.


Tortellini Soup with Mini Chicken Meatballs

We had an unexpected, extended break from school schedule this week. On Monday all of the local schools and surrounding districts were closed in honor of Martin Luther King Day. Then, late Monday night we received text messages from our local school district that all schools would be closed due "inclement weather conditions".  Freezing temperatures with lots ice, sleet and the possibility of more snow was put into the forecast here in Central and South Texas for the next few days. 

Simple Cocoa-Spice Cake #SundaySupper

When I've got the time, I love to bake two-layer cakes or large sheet cakes complete with homemade frosting or a shiny glaze on top. But, more and more often simple one-layer cakes, like this cocoa-spice cake, are becoming one of my favorite things to serve for an after dinner sweet treat.


Black-eyed Pea Soup with Ham

Hi there. I don't know about you all, but it takes me a few days to bounce back after the holiday "vacation".  The first week of my son's Christmas break this time around was so restful, peaceful and fun. We enjoyed hanging around the house, having late breakfasts, playing board games, playing in the yard and watching lots of Christmastime classic shows and movies. It was fantastic, relaxed week with my kids!
