Brown has once again created a challenge. Well, it’s more than just brown, it is shapeless and almost without visual texture. What is it about comfort food that is so hard to photograph? Colors and props help with the process. This time I decided to go with a muted tone in an effort to make […]

It was pretty loud in the pantry. Vanilla and chocolate were going at it. They seem to have a rivalry over how often one or the other gets top billing. Those two divas need attention. The good news is how they put the rivalry aside and are a great team when used together. It is […]

Vanilla Pudding | Magnolia Days

The term homemade has evolved over the years. Well, it evolved for me. Take vanilla pudding for example. When I was a kid, there was store-bought, instant, and homemade. Homemade meant the kind you cooked using pudding mix and milk. It was “the” pudding we used when we made banana pudding. Pouring the warm mixture […]

Small balloons were lined up on the counter. A bowl of melting wafers topped a pot of simmering water. Ingredients were readied and the plan went into motion. A very special treat was in the works. Anticipation and excitement increased with each step. Dipping, stirring, whipping, and folding all took place within a short period […]

Zabaglione Italian Custard | Magnolia Days

I had a lot of egg yolks. I made these wonderful coconut cupcakes which only used egg whites. How to use the yolks was the question. One thing I did was scramble a couple and make a sandwich using them, cheese, and prosciutto I had leftover from a pasta dish. It was a great sandwich […]

Caramel Apple Trifle

The cake part was perfect but the frosting was not so much, again. The saga of the caramel frosting continues. This time I used an old recipe from a […]
