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.
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.
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?
I also asked people what are their favorite cheese’s and the 1st responses were always..yup, you guessed it.
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)
One of the many simple pleasures coming out of this Irish guy’s kitchen…but in my kitchen we call it…
Bru’sketta, just like Giada.
Ok, I never talk like that, but it sounds more fancy than saying tomatoes and bread, right?
It’s January on Long Island and it is oh so cold, but that isn’t keeping me away from the outdoor grill, aka, The Beast.
In keeping to my January foodie theme, “The Month of Meat”, I am officially a Porterhouse perfectionist.
The recipe at the bottom of this blog will give you simple step by step instructions for grilling the most amazing Porterhouse steak that has ever been placed before you.
Usually this time of year I am busy with my slow cooker making soups and sauces and other slow food creations but that’s not the case this year, so far.
Even thought it’s April, for some reason Mother Nature decided to grace us with 30 degree weather and a bit of sleet and snow, but that’s not going to stop us from grilling, is it?
Well, perhaps but the nice weather is on it’s way and sooner than later we’ll be drinking beer in the backyard, floating in the pool and chillin as we’re grillin.
