Tex-Mex Chalupas with Quick, Easy Taco Filling

Tex-Mex Chalupas with Quick, Easy Taco Filling by Marlin Rinehart

What Texans call 'chalupas' are called tostadas outside the state. This is my quick and light summertime favorite meal when the Texas weather is hot and I have little appetite to eat. Two or three chalupas make a very satisfying meal.

Walnut Cake

Walnut Cake by Marlin Rinehart

This cake is full of walnuts and is enhanced with the delicate flavor of cognac or brandy. It’s similar to a pound cake but lighter in texture. It bakes slowly in a cool oven and is perfect for nibbling with a cup of hot tea or coffee. I've been baking this cake for nearly 40 years.

Vanilla Custard Sauce (British)

Vanilla Custard Sauce (British) by Marlin Rinehart

This sauce is served over steamed puddings, fruit crisps (crumbles), and any dessert that would be enhanced by a creamy vanilla sauce. It's the perfect homemade replacement for Byrd's Custard powder. One warning, however: 1) use a small, "thick-bottom" saucepan, and 2) cook over low heat and don't allow the mixture to boil or it will…

Southern Fresh Apple Cake

Southern Fresh Apple Cake by Marlin Rinehart

This is a very moist and fruity cake, and typically southern (USA), studded with many sinful pleasures, i.e., apples, coconut, pecans and golden raisins, plus a rich soaking sauce to add more calories! I like to bake it in a kugelhof pan, but a bundt or plain tube pan would work fine, too. This cake would be great for Thanksgiving,…
