Okay, this sounds com­pli­cated right? I promise it’s not. I found myself want­ing to make a recipe with a pea puree. What is pea puree you ask? (okay, you’re prob­a­bly ask­ing what brodetto is too, but that will have to be another post down the road) Good ques­tion and one I wanted an answer to recently. I’m addicted to watch­ing “cook­ing shows” and it seems like some­body is always mak­ing a pea puree. (Remem­ber the…

You heard me cor­rectly, din­ner in a bag. Did I men­tion it was a paper bag? This isn’t your typ­i­cal meal, this is a show stop­per! The good news is, your palate will for­ever love you and it’s sim­ple to pre­pare. This can be made in under an hour total. Although not nec­es­sary,  I rec­om­mend mak­ing the sauce at least a few hours ahead so the fla­vors have more time to develop. This meal def­i­nitely…

I decided to start post­ing Sunday’s soups on Sat­ur­day to give you time to get gro­ceries. Today I’m am shar­ing my son’s favorite soup. He looks for­ward to win­ter because he knows mom’s home­made split pea soup is in his future! (Don’t worry, he doesn’t read my blog, so he won’t know I’m embar­rass­ing him right now.) This recipe is inspired by Ina Garten’s, Parker’s split pea soup.  I’ve made a few changes such as adding…

I think the proof is in the photo. I have a palette pleas­ing prime rib recipe. Often peo­ple feel intim­i­dated to make such a lux­u­ri­ous meal. It’s actu­ally very sim­ple to make. I don’t usu­ally equate prime rib din­ner with bud­get friendly enter­tain­ing. How­ever, this time of the year you can find prime rib roast at a huge sav­ings. (This will vary depend­ing on where you live. Check your local gro­cery fliers.) For less than…

San­gria I say! The beauty of San­gria lies in the fact that in spite of being exotic and deli­cious, it is incred­i­bly easy to make. There are thou­sands of dif­fer­ent recipes. No joke! Almost every restau­rant has it’s own “secret san­gria”. Through trial and error, I have come up with my own sim­ple recipe. It’s so refresh­ing, fruity and light. Once you make this you’ll won­der why you haven’t before. Not only does it taste…

Let me intro­duce you to my new addic­tion, the onion loaf. It’s absolutely deli­cious! Don’t take my word for it, make your own and just eat it. Let me warn you this cheesy onion loaf is a lit­tle like a bag of salty potato chips, you can’t just eat one! When you make it you’re going to think it’s huge and won­der how any­one will fin­ish it. Then you’ll pull a piece of the gooey,…
