I like Margaritaville but sometimes I like Sweaterville too!

A cold front is getting ready to hit the nation this week and I’m kind of excited.  Maybe partly because I’ve lost my summer tan and these warm fall Texas days make it difficult to hide my pale legs…but truthfully, I love sweaters. Not the bulky, itchy variety but the soft, cozy, maybe too long in the sleeves type.  So I will be unpacking my sweaters this week to brace against the cold.
It’s also a good time of year to be in the kitchen because the warmth of the oven is bearable and the fragrances evoke childhood memories of family feasts and holidays.  So here’s what we are making for you in the kitchen this week. Menu for Nov 10

I am also posting the 2014 Thanksgiving Pies & Sides menu and 2014 Holiday Products offering that we featured at the Sip & Sample on November 6.  Use the contact form to order or email


Such a super Saturday at the Cultivate Festival in Irving!!

Saturday was just amazing, great bands, great food, huge crowds, wonderful to meet customers! We sold a lot of chocolate pie, pecan pie bars and GF pecan pie bars and of course, our beloved, S’mores bark.  The Dallas News Guidelive photographer was taking pictures and we got a nice mention in her slideshow -
Here’s a pic of my crew that were such a huge part of Butterfield Gourmet’s successful day - IMG_3364

Come to @CultivateDallas this Saturday, October 18!

We are so excited to be a part of Chipotle’s Cultivate event at Lake Carolyn this Saturday from 11 am – 7 pm.  We will be in the Artisan Hall, serving up slices of Chocolate Custard Pie (see below!), Pecan Pie Bars and packages of S’mores bark.  See the official website for information on the event:  Hope to see you tomorrow!

The pumpkin dilemma...

So October arrives and I see all these wonderful pumpkins in the store and I am desperate to put them on my front porch to beckon Fall to my doorstep.  But the forecast in the Dallas area this week ranges from 89-93 each day and those lovely orange globes will be rotten inside by Halloween!  So my plan this year:  I will buy the beautiful pumpkins and place them in my foyer where I can enjoy them and once the temperatures stay below 85 daily, I will set them outside to herald the arrival of Fall!
My menu this week includes one Fall favorite that should grace every home – an Apple Crisp.  The fragrant apples with cinnamon spices fill my kitchen long after the baking is done.  When you order this dessert from me, you can place it in the oven to warm and you will enjoy the same, heady scent throughout your home!

Soup: Chicken Tortilla - I’ve received a lot of orders from Artizone customers the past 2 weeks for my mainstay soup so I’m reminding you that it is always available.  It’s traditional, full of veggies and I like to serve mine over chopped avocado with crispy tortilla strips (included) and Jack cheese sprinkled over the top. $15/quart  GF

Salad: Chicken-Cabbage salad – it’s not the Chinese chicken salad you’re familiar with – this version is crunchier with carrots, ramen and very light and spicy.  $15 serves 2-3

Quiche: Ham & Swiss - this is the quiche most of us grew up on. It’s simple and honest and creamy.  $20/pie serves 4-6**

Pot pie:  Homestyle Chicken ($25) or Beef Pot Roast ($30)**

Dessert: Fresh Fruit Tart - this pretty dessert has a cookie shortbread crust with a creamy filling and topped with fresh fruit. Best served the day of pick-up. $20/pie GF avail.

Cookie: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip - who doesn’t love these cookies?! $10/12 large cookies GF

  • GF crust is available for the quiche or any of the pot pies. Additional charge applies.
