Veggie Lasagna

Veggie Lasagna

We had a dinner party recently and I made this veggie lasagna.  I had every intention of taking photos and blogging it.  But then the wine got in the way.  By “got in the way”, I mean we drank too much and forgot to take […]

Bacon and Eggs

Bacon and Eggs

I love Pasta Alla Carbonara. It is one of my favorite things to eat when I’m in a good Italian Restaurant. When we were in Rome last year, I had Carbonara almost every day. I had try all of the different restaurant’s versions! Research purposes, […]

A Different Daring Baker

A Different Daring Baker

This month’s challenge was much different than most of the other challenges. Not only is it savory, it’s an entree. It is “real” Italian lasagne… not the ricotta laden version that most of us are used to. The March 2009 challenge is hosted by Mary […]

Braised Beef Short Ribs

Bone with a Hole

Bone with a Hole

Beans and Franks Anyone?

Beans and Franks Anyone?

This here isn’t your usual Beenie Weenies! No sir! Instead, this is spicy Italian sausage sauteed with Broccoli Rabe (AKA Rapini) and Cannellini Beans and served over polenta. Yummmmm. Stephan isn’t a big fan of it, but its one of my absolute favorite things to […]

Dreary Days = Soup

Dreary Days = Soup

I’ve been up in North Florida at St George Island with the family for the past few days, just relaxing and fishing. I just came home to rainy and dreary weather here in South Florida. Since it actually dipped below 80 degrees, I was in […]
