Dinner in our house on weekdays typically go like this: Hmmm... what should I do with this 'xyz' that I have. It's like a Sicilian way of cooking which is more about what's directly on hand and what can be made from it rather than picking a recipe and then hoofing off to the store to buy the… MORE

In a previous post, 4 Hour Ciabatta I explained my method for making a crusty, flavorful loaf of Ciabatta in four hours without having to make a starter ahead of time. While this loaf is good, you can really kick up the flavor by using a starter. Many Italian breads are made with a… MORE

What makes this recipe southern Italian? Well not much other than south of Naples and Sicily meatballs (polpette) tend to be made from mostly or all pork and with Pecorino rather than Parmigiano-Reggiano. This recipe was one of those, "Hmmm.. what am I going to do with this meat in the… MORE

A few years ago, when I got married, I learned how "hard" cooking was.  I could never decide on a recipe.  When I did, I was usually missing at least one of the ingredients and I was making several trips to the store in one week.  I was spending a large amount of time just "thinking" about… MORE

This month playing around with the al fresco® chicken sausage recipes, I came up with a spin on a recipe that is one of my kids favorites, a grilled Italian style sausage heroe!  We always get these when we are at the local end-of-summer carnival, and now I can make a healtier version of this… MORE
