This pasta dish is perfect for a light summer meal. Homemade cappelletti pasta filled with four kinds of cheese served with a beech mushroom, charred sweet corn, and snap pea truffle sauce.
Here’s a cornbread with some kick! I love to serve it with chili and Cajun dishes. A beautiful bread that holds together better than other cornbread that can be a bit on the crumbly side. You can make them in individual muffins using a muffin pan or a cast iron skillet as I am doing here.
When I was a child I was a bundle of raw energy. How many times didn’t I hear my mother say, “Ella, sit, eat!”
“Can’t mom, I have volleyball practice, going to the beach, working today.”
I’d grab a piece of toast and run out the door.
This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. It came about as a tie-breaker when I had asked my family if they wanted Spaghetti Bolognese or Stuffed Cannelloni and we had a fifty-fifty result. Meaning daughter voted for spaghetti, son Cannelloni, and husband remained uncommitted. “I like them both.”
It has been an interesting Spring this year with three major snowstorms in April. This has never happened in my neck of the woods. But, I think we have finally turned the corner and Spring, the real Spring with sunny days, warming temperatures, the necessary showers to bring on May flowers, is finally here!
I’m celebrating its fashionably late arrival with my favorite in-season vegetable, asparagus. For this week’s brunch, I am preparing an asparagus and tomato quiche using gruyere cheese, which melts up smooth and even with fruity notes.
I love my Sunday mornings. It is the one day I allow myself to sleep in. The chores can wait. There is no running late to work/school. And today the birds are singing, the sun is shining, and I’m in the mood to spoil my family with one of our favorite morning dishes: cheesy biscuits and eggs.
I adore omelets. They are so easy to make, you can have them any time of the day, and you can put just about anything in them. I mean, go crazy! Add those veggies, combine those cheeses, and chop those herbs. They are all good in an omelet!
Here’s an Italian bread recipe made more delicious by adding parmesan and rosemary to the dough.
Here’s a hearty brunch plate sure to fill you up on a weekend morning. Scrambled eggs, fried potatoes, sitting beside seasoned black beans all sprinkled with shredded muenster cheese. Dig in!
What to do with leftover sloppy joe meat? How about a Sloppy Breakfast Sandwich! That’s how this morning favorite came about. A tribute, if you will, to a sandwich shop in town that takes basic sandwiches and keeps adding goodness on top of goodness.
