Hmmmm... fresh artichokes! This week got three superb looking artichokes with the farm box and wondered just what we'd do with those babies. Had some homemade dried pappardelle left over too and thought well why not put them together with some thin sliced chicken and lemon? It would be… MORE

Recently my wife and I were in New York City and on one occasion went to visit the Italian side of the West Village. On Bleeker Street we found a cool little risotteria most appropriately called "Risotteria" that served all sorts of different combinations. My wife had a saffron risotto with… MORE
