Nine Pepper Soup

January 30, 2012

I promise that this is not as hot as it sounds.  I wasn’t really intending to put so many peppers in it…really.  It just sort of happened.  My goal was a good vegetable and chicken soup…..so….I opened the refrigerator and started pulling stuff out….chopping stuff up.  And….I was not disappointed.  Threw a little cheese and [...]

Well, I am sure if you are on Pinterest or Stumble Upon or if you did any blog hopping last week, you probably saw this awesome post.  I saw it everywhere and it was the most visited at Permanent Posies.  I wish I could eat this stuff.  I think it would be the crack of [...]

Hearty Vegetable and Turkey Sausage Frittata (turned Omelet)

January 23, 2012

A frittata is quite similar to an omelet, in that it is also made of eggs in a skillet.  Really, the only differences include whipping air into the eggs, cooking it without folding, cooking at a lower temperature, and cooking it a little longer.  The frittata gets more done on one side  and is often [...]

Spicy Gluten Free Texas Trash Chex Mix

January 16, 2012

There is no need for a holiday to have a little Spicy Texas Trash Chex Mix, though for some reason, we only make it during the Christmas holidays.  It was an annual tradition at our house and the taste of it brings me back to childhood. I now make it gluten-free since my daughter is [...]

Italian Northern Bean Soup with a Touch of Parmigiano Reggiano

January 9, 2012

Since I brought the Parmesan cheese home straight from Parma, Italy, I have been anxious to cook with it.  However, I came home with a swollen knee, jet lag and a general lack of desire to do anything productive.  We went 80 mph in Italy (well literally because that was the speed limit) visiting the [...]

Visiting Venice on a Breathtaking Day

January 7, 2012

In case you hadn’t heard, we went to Italy.  I know people who travel all over the world and I am sure this is old hat to them but for me, it was a trip of a lifetime.  I enjoyed it so much, but mostly because I was with my kids.  My daughter-in-law is like [...]

Making Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese

January 7, 2012

First let me say that if Parmesan cheese is not made in an 80 km region surrounding the plains of Parma, Italy…..it cannot be called Parmesan Reggiano Cheese.  Found that out last week while taking a private tour of a Parmesan Cheese Factory in Parma.  They are adamant about that little fact.  Alrighty then…. If [...]
