Snacks Worth Watching Football For. Half-Time Shrimp.

All Recipes | February 24, 2020 | By

I originally posted a version of this recipe a few years ago and received rave reviews about it, so I wanted to post it again.

I  was not the perfectionist with the pictures and stories as I am now, but the recipe is really worth sharing.

I hope you enjoy.

 

Did someone say Football?

That’s right kid’s. The Super Bowl is right around the corner and to me that means food.

“Don’t you mean football?”….

Nope…I’m not a huge football fan ..but I do love food….so on with the show.

Happy Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Muffins.

All Recipes, Baking, Dinner, Holidays | November 24, 2019 | By

Thanksgiving.

A home filled with amazing aromas, family, friends and food.

A holiday to be thankful for so many things, to give thanks to others and to relax…but not for the cook, unless you play your cards right.

As a foodie, I do love Thanksgiving, but not for the main course. The big bird.

God knows that I can get creative in planning, prepping and preparing the perfect poultry, (say that three times fast), but for me my true passion is in the appetizers and sides.

The turkey is and will always be the center of attention and it will always be the big boss and the star of the show, but do not forget that there are many players that need to come together to make a perfect performance.

Enter the perfect muffin.

The Only Marinade You Will Ever Need.

lemonmarinadenow

 

Spring has sprung.

Birds are singing their anthems…

The flowers are sweet and fragrant…

The sun is shining bright early in the morning…

The landscapers are in the backyard at 7 am waving their leaf blowers around like light sabers..

And the pollen count is already high….

But, that also means that farm stand fruits and veggies are on the menu, fresh seafood is at the market and we’re cooking outside more often, so get ready for a marinade that will not only be synonymous with the nice weather but will also be known as your favorite go-to recipe.

 

Enter: The Only Marinade You Will Ever Need.

.

It really doesn’t get any easier than this.

Freshly squeezed lemon juice, a high quality olive oil, a fragrant selection of dry and fresh herbs make this marinade the flavor of warm weather.

The zesty lemon, rich oil and delicious herbs compliment almost anything that you marinate, baste and brush this on.

 Mozzarella.

I don’t think I know of a single living soul that doesn’t LOVE mozzarella.

Think about it…

Have you ever heard someone say..“Yeah, gimmie a slice and hold the cheese.” ????

NO!  You haven’t! I can almost guarantee it.

In fact, I hit the streets to ask what New Yorkers favorite pizza toppings are and guess what the answers were?

Extra Cheese…..BAAM!

I also asked people what are their favorite cheese’s and the 1st responses were always..yup, you guessed it.

Mozzarella.

And finally, I asked..”What is the best cheese to eat when you have tomatoes and basil or want to cut it into sticks and fry it?

The answer. You know it baby…Mozzarella again.

( Thanks for answering my questions, Mom and Dad)

The Perfect Winter Treat: Baked Brie en Croûte with Sliced Apples and Raspberry Jam.

Winter is finally here in New York.

I went outside this morning about 6 am and it was 11 degrees. When it’s 11 degrees it feels like 3 degrees, so I ran back into the house for the warmth of my coffee cup and laptop and to think about hot food and delicious treats.

Right now is prime baking season, so I’m joining the cool kids and turning up the freak switch to high.

Ok, I’m not that outrageous and there is no freak switch…just my oven that ..um..I’m turning up to high.

Enough with my failed attempts of culinary comedy and trying to fit in with the Millennials.

 On with the show.

Dinner, Holidays | March 3, 2017 | By

Oh yeah, St. Patrick’s Day is March 17th, and that can only mean one thing.
Getting drunk at 9 am??  No…….well, maybe..but it’s a “day for wearing of the green” and other kick-ass Irish traditions, like making Irish soda bread, watching the parade on tv,  listening to Irish music and ..ok, perhaps getting drunk early in the morning.

Many of you don’t know that St. Patrick was not even born in Ireland, in fact..it is said that he may have been,,,ugh..don’t shoot the messenger, Italian. Yup.
Waiter…extra whiskey in my coffee please.

So before you start drinking green beer and dancing with strangers make sure that you gather up all of your ingredients and ready to have the most delicious corned beef and cabbage that you have ever had.
