Rigatoni with Mushrooms and Ricotta cheese

This weekend I caught a few cooking shows, namely Lidia’s Italy and Ciao Italia. I realized I cook much like Lidia with simple dishes packed with flavor and few ingredients. I don’t like to make dishes with ingredients that are hard to find or super expensive. I haven’t had a rigatoni dish in a long … Continue reading

Buffalo Blue Baked Potato

I was searching Pinterest for some ideas to use with my cooking classes for kids when I found a recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu Potatoes.

New recipes….appetizer and dessert

First things first, the job didn’t work out. I took down the post about it so I wouldn’t be found in a search for that particular business in my area because it’s not fair to them to make it known about their changes.

I was a bit inspired to change it up a bit since I didn’t want to use mayonaise so I thought a bit … Continue reading

It’s in the cheese

Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese is one of the best tasting Italian cheeses, to me anyway. Tonight I made up a new dish, Cauliflower au Gratin or Cavolfiore Gratinati in Italian. It calls for only 1/4 cup of this rather expensive cheese. I found this recipe at one of the new blogs I discovered, bell’ alimento. This was super … Continue reading
