    Crespelle con funghi e carne macinata di manzo

    That sounds a lot fancier than hamburger and mushrooms in crepes, but, that’s essentially what we had. Crespella is what we – and the French – call a crêpe. The same concept, anyway. The flour-to-egg ratio is a bit different, but the end result is the same – a thin pancake […]

    Summer Salads and Wedding Bells

    Summertime… and the livin’ is easy… Oh. Wait. It’s Fall. September 28th. Debbie’s birthday. And it’s 84° outside. I’m more used to weather like this at home than I am here in Pennsylvania. It’s been a wild year of strange weather, but, right now, I’ll take it. It means another […]

    Butternut Squash Soup

    I just love coming home to dinner on the table! It really is one of life’s great luxuries. I cook dinner most nights and really do enjoy it, but if you’re cooking, I’m eating. Just show me where to sit. Victor is a great cook. He’s instinctive. He just knows […]

    Pork Pies

    A while back I picked up a package of ground pork at the grocers. As is typical of my shopping habits, I had no plan for it, but knew that I could do something with it, eventually. Yesterday morning, while going through the freezer to see what I would fix […]

    Sunday Supper Times Three

      Spicy pulled pork atop cheesy, creamy polenta! A kinda Mexico meets Italy via the Bronx. Or something. I’ve been jonesin’ for polenta for a while, and when Victor came in with the latest haul from the garden this morning, I knew what I was making! A few tomatoes and […]
