Southern Style Coconut Cake with a Whipped Coconut Cream Cheese Frosting
I am a life long member of the "I love coconut" fan club.  I must really love coconut cake, because I've already shared three different coconut cake recipes on my blog (starting in 2009). My favorite cake is white cake. Hands down. End of story.  I prefer a...

Drunken Beans
How many beans recipes have I posted, over the years? Quite a few! I never tire of finding new ways to prepare them.  We especially enjoy beans with barbecue and chili con carne . Given my first choice, pinto beans always win. This must come from my child...

Blood Orange Upside Down Cake
Until I spent two weeks visiting my grandmother, in Bavaria, I wasn't familiar with blood oranges. I learned this the hard way. Each morning, the bed and breakfast where I stayed, would lay out a beautiful breakfast buffet. Freshly baked rolls, European ...

Martha Stewart's One Pot Pasta Meal
Like most people, who love to cook and bake, I have a serious addiction
to cookbooks. I especially love cookbooks with full-color photos of
each recipe.   I've done a fairly good job of controlling my impulsive buying of said cookbooks. But, once in a w...

The Best Vegetarian Chili - Thick and Hearty and Healthy!
For as long as I can remember, I always make a big pot of my Chile Con Carne recipe for Super Bowl Sunday.  I've been making this for so long, that I don't need a recipe. It's hearty, and not too spicy. With a pile of warm flour tortillas, my men ladle bow...

Roasted Corned Beef with a Bourbon Molasses Glaze and Balsamic Glazed Seared Cabbage
  Wow, that's a long and descriptive title for this corned beef recipe!   I was inspired to try " The Pioneer Woman's " version of Corned Beef and
Cabbage, from her posting last March .  What reeled me in was her version
of seared cabbage drizzled with a ...

Mexican Pork Carnitas/Pulled Pork (with a little help from my pressure cooker)
I have often given credit to my mother for forcing teaching me how to cook, ever since I was a little girl. Most of the recipes she taught me how to make were from her German (Bavarian, to be specific) origins. To this day, my siblings request that I make ...

Mardis Gras King Cake (with cream cheese filling)
I've  been to New Orleans, several times, but never during the Mardis Gras season.  (I'm not so sure I could handle the crowds and craziness.) Mardi Gras season begins on January 6, of each year and ends on Fat Tuesday, the day before Lent. One of the wonde...

Author of the Food Blog "A Feast for the Eyes"
Introduction
Debby "Foodiewife", author of "A Feast for the Eyes" Food blog. Hi, from Monterey, California. I'm a home cook who strives to learn how to make all things from scratch-- while balancing my busy life as a working wife and mom. I try to buy (and grow) the freshest ingredients possible. My culinary skills are an ever-evolving process of trial and error. I love to cook and bake, equally. Many of my recipes are influenced from my mother's Southern German background, and my dad's Mexican heritage. I have a list of things new recipes and dishes I still want to learn how to make. I enjoy sharing my self-taught lessons with a photo tutorial. I'm a self-taught and aspiring photographer. My food blog is my perfect venue to share recipes and I hope to you inspire you with my food photos.

I've been coming here for 3 years, and I think that you get your bang for the buck. I get the $30.00 combo that includes a "clothes on" massage of the face, head, neck, feet and legs. Then, I get 20 minutes of being on a private massage table for a back massage. I have a favorite massage therapist, but I'm reluctant to give out the name-- for fear she'll get so popular she'll be too booked! The therapists speak minimal English and don't talk at all, which is exactly as I like it. Seeing that a spa will charge $90-$110 per massage, you can't beat this. It's not as fancy as a spa, but it's clean, and that's what matters to me.
