Tweet Because the eggs are cooked in a hot and spicy tomato sauce, this Italian dish is known as Uova in Purgatorio. The intensity level can range from mildly spicy to … hot as hell. My recipe is full of flavor with (to suit my family’s taste) just the right amount of heat. Rather than […]

Avocado Toast

Tweet When I lived in California, we had an amazing avocado tree that produced an abundance of ridiculously large fruit.

The classic French omelette, with its light, fluffy texture, is best consumed immediately […]

Carbonara for One

Tweet Pasta alla Carbonara is a simple dish consisting basically of pasta, bacon, cheese and raw eggs. Some recipes (not the original) add cream. The original Roman version is quite rich and adding the eggs to achieve a creamy sauce with out them curdling is rather tricky. I came up with an easy, full proof […]

Sweet Potato & Andouille Hash

Tweet Hash became notably popular during and after World War II, due to the rationing of fresh meat and for many, it came in a can (Hormel corned beef hash). When I was growing up, we never wasted food and leftovers on one night could easily find their way into breakfast the next morning. Hash […]

So a healthy and satisfying meal is just minutes away. This is also a perfect afternoon snack (Merenda) and can be enjoyed at […]

Cauliflower Greens and Eggs

Tweet I am always looking for alternativesĀ  to replace breakfast potatoes. When I made Cauliflower Greens Restelli the other day, I had an “Ahah” moment. Now, that dish is delicious on it’s own, but I wanted to use it in an entirely different way as a substitute for country-style potatoes. So … I followed the […]
