Tuna Bruschette

Tweet Bruschette is the quintessential small bite and is the perfect choice for summertime eating! The tuna salad can be prepared in advance so, all you have to do is toast the bread. I use Wild Planet Albacore Tuna. Each five ounce can contains 100% pure tuna in large chunk (not bits and pieces) and […]

Peach & Prosciutto Bruschetta

Tweet   My inspiration for this bruschetta (singular) comes from the “small bites” of Italy, known as merenda. The nourishing small meals are defined by the season and since July is the season for peaches, it seemed a good place to start. Last weekend we took a drive to our local U-Pick Farm and we […]

Roasted Cherry Tomatoes & Eggplant Bruschetta

Tweet There are endless possibilities when it comes to making bruschette (plural). For me, it’s a matter of what ingredients I have on hand. Bruschette are terrific any time of the day or night and can be a quick breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner. Whether I’m making a single serving or enough to feed a crowd, I always […]

Holiday Brussels Sprouts

Tweet I really like Brussels sprouts. I enjoy them for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I realize not everyone is a fan of this healthy cruciferous vegetable and most folks either love them or hate them. If your mom (or whomever did the cooking) prepared stinky, smelly, nasty-tasting Brussels sprouts, don’t blame the pint-size vegetable … […]

Jam-y Fig & Ricotta Bruschette with Crispy Prosciutto

Tweet This is another example reminding us that food does not have to be complicated to be good. A perfect bite of slightly-sweet fig jam smeared on grilled rustic bread and topped with luscious, creamy ricotta with crispy Prosciutto is good fast food. Enjoy as a light breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack for one or […]

Caramelized Leek Fritatta

Tweet Frittata is the Italian word for omelette. I often use the words frittata and omelette interchangeably but, technically they are different. A frittata is flat with the ingredients mixed into the eggs, rather than used for a filling, as in an omelette. The classic French omelette, with its light, fluffy texture, is best consumed immediately […]

Brussels Sprouts Bruschetta

Tweet Anyone who knows me well, will tell you that this is a favorite breakfast of mine. Once a week, I roast a pound or two of these little cruciferous morsels (which tames there bittery-bite and brings out their softer, sweeter side), to have on hand for a quick and healthy meal. I toast a […]

Italian Steak Sandwich

Tweet Thin slices of frizzled beef, melted cheese and a bun that is crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside, are the quintessential ingredients of this famous sandwich. Created in Philadelphia by two brothers from Abruzzi, Italy, this sandwich is known as a Philly Cheese Steak (or just Cheese Steak if […]

Crostini vs Bruschette

Tweet Crostino in Italian means crouton – small pieces of toasted bread. Crostini are thin slices of toast smeared with a pate or a spread of some kind. Crostini may be served either hot or cold. Bruschette, on the other hand, are quite different. It’s all about the bread … thick, chewy, rustic bread! Bruschetta […]

Rosemary-Roasted Grapes

Tweet I’m certain you have probably roasted a chicken, cuts of beef and various vegetables, but have you ever roasted fruit? Roasting fruit intensifies its natural sweetness and is a great way to use fruit that is still good but, past its prime. I make this recipe and spoon over roast pork or chicken and […]
