Nonna Luna's Rice

Share

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I usually have a 2-lb bag of frozen shrimp in my freezer. I get a bag every time I go to Costco. The shrimp come frozen, peeled and deveined. They still have the tail on them, and you can choose to cook with the tails on or without […]

Meyer Lemon Gelato

Share

In January/February, I always see a box of Meyer Lemons at Costco and I feel compelled to put them in my cart. I don’t ever have a recipe in mind when I see them, but I love citrus so much, that I always find something to do with them. This time it was gelato. This […]

Salted Apple Cider Caramels

Share

I love homemade caramels. The kind they sometimes give you after dinner at a fancy restaurant.

I have only ever made these before, and they’re delicious, but these apple cider caramels are incredible. I love the concentrated apple flavor, and the slight saltiness. I truly have never tasted anything like them. I’d love it if a […]

Chicken and Dumplings

I’ve made this recipe a couple of times now. Filling and delicious, it’s pure comfort food that’s great to serve on a chilly evening. We’re finally having some chilly nights here in NYC. We’ve had quite a mild winter so far.

This is a great weeknight meal, although it takes a little bit of time to […]

Buttermilk Ice Cream

Share

Buttermilk and ice cream don’t sound like a natural pairing to me, but I decided to be bold and try this recipe. It was delicious! The ice cream was incredibly creamy and the buttermilk gave it a nice little tang. It reminded me a bit of the tang that Pinkberry […]

Neiman Marcus Chicken Salad

The recipe for this salad came to me in a weekly email full of recipes that I receive from Saveur magazine. This chicken salad is very similar to one that my mother made when I was growing up. We usually had it when company came over. It was […]

Strawberry and Rosemary Scones

Share

Here’s another delicious recipe made with Mrs. Eldredge’s fresh strawberry jam.   These scones are wonderful and the rosemary gives them a really interesting and complex flavor. You wouldn’t think that strawberry and rosemary go together, but in these scones, they absolutely do. The sweet lemony glaze is wonderful as well. […]

Mocha Chocolate Ice Box Cake

Share

I have had my eye on this recipe ever since I received the Barefoot Contessa How Easy is That? cookbook for Christmas over a year ago.  Recently one of my aunts told me how wonderful the recipe was, so I knew I had to make it.   I’m in two book clubs, one is co-ed […]
