Rhino Coffee’s Vanilla Madeleine

By  •  Food, Recipes

Since Rhino Coffee opened its doors three years ago, it has established itself as one of the most unique and beloved coffee shops in Shreveport. Nestled in the heart of the historic South Highlands neighborhood, Rhino features a traditional coffee menu, healthy homemade food, and some of the best pastries in town. Pastry chef and baker, Athena Roudebush, is the brains behind those delicious baked goods, and she has been gracious enough to share one of Rhino’s upcoming recipes with our SB family.

Athena graduated from Cook Street School of Culinary Arts in Denver in 2008 where she studied a broad spectrum of European culinary traditions, but baking and pastries were always her passion. Growing up, there wasn’t a lot of home cooking going on in her home and cookies were one of the first things she learned how to make.

“I have always been a lover of sweets, but for me there is nothing better than a good cookie,” she said.

This fall, Athena plans to add one of her favorite cookies, the vanilla Madeleine, to Rhino’s menu.

“Cookies can be so understated,” she said. “But the Madeleine can either be simple or very elaborate and gorgeous.”

Skinny Southern Pimento Cheese

Skinny Southern Pimento Cheese

Welcome to tailgating season! From Friday night football, to college game day, to NFL Sunday, we are bound to host or attend one tailgating party this fall.

The most popular item at a tailgating party – chips and dip. The cream, the crunch, and the calories! Our traditional chips and dip can yield over 200 calories, and that is just the dip.

What’s a southern tailgater to do? We ‘skinny’ a favorite – Pimento Cheese. This dip is my staple when hosting any tailgating cooking demo and contains a few ‘skinny’ secrets. We saved a ton of fat and calories by replacing the regular mayo with a combination of light mayo and Greek yogurt. Not only are we saving calories, but our Greek yogurt adds protein and calcium without losing great flavor.

As for the chips? Look for a high-fiber chip – 5 grams of fiber or higher. My favorite? Beanitos.

Trust me, your guests will not notice the difference.

Geaux Team Skinny!
