Cheese Latkas Recipe. Gluten-Free-Friendly

29th of November, 2012

Cheese Latkas

I have my mother-in-law to thank for turning me on to cheese latkas, which she used to whip up anytime we tugged at her heartstrings, Chanukkah or not, and often for a light lunch, as they are only very lightly sweetened.   With this recipe, your cheese latkas will be...

10th of October, 2012

lidia-bastianich-levana-cooks (2)

I recently received Lidia Bastianich’s latest Cookbook, Lidia’s Favorite Recipes, which her publishers sent me for review. Lidia’s cooking show has always been one of the very few cooking shows I actually enjoy watching, for many no-brainer reasons: It is real food, not a fantasy; it has none of that...

Pasta with Pesto Sauce Recipe. All Variations. Gluten Free Friendly

29th of February, 2012

Pasta with Pesto Sauce

The perennial favorite is based on basil, olive oil, and toasted walnuts; but we have seen pesto recast with a different herb or nut, and tasting just as delicious and interesting. Use not only as a pasta sauce but as topping for cooked chicken or fish, or a dip. I find...

Caesar Salad Recipe

21st of January, 2012

Caesar Salad Recipe

If there was ever a time Caesar  Salad went out of fashion and was eclipsed by a new salad on the block, however briefly, I can’t  remember it. The queen, albeit with a king’s name. What is the secret of its enduring popularity? In my opinion, a Caesar salad with a...

Mock Zabaglione Recipe

25th of October, 2011

Zabaglione

I haven’t had the authentic zablaglione, a luscious Italian whipped egg-yolk-sugar-and-port cream, since one day I got sick from -and ashamed of- having splurged on it. But even at small doses, not everyone can afford it: I trust you will like the results of my tinkering: It tastes very much...
