my latest dessert recipe!
Cooking for me is all about sharing. I have never been alone as long as I have been able to share a meal. That's in fact how I made most friends in my life, around the stove-top and around the tabl...

I have added a link to the blog my profile under every possible category and with or witout www. in the address (custom linik, contributor, links). I have added a link back to my google profile from text widgets in the sidebar. At the moment I have one with ? rel=author" and one with rel="publisher". I have tried to link from my "about" page.

Now in Season  - 
 
A healthy staple in our family: anything green soup. Braise one chopped onion until translucent. Add 2/3 to 1 lb steamed greens of you choice (spinach, swiss chard, zucchini). Do add only one species of veggies though. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon starch and blend. Add enough water or stock to obtain a creamy consistency. Top with toasted bread rubbed with fresh garlic, a drizzle of good quality olive oil and a sprinkle of grated Parmesan or Pecorino.

Our Cookbook  - 
 
Porcini and peppers pasta sauce. This is a favorite recipe at our home. It's also the only way I cook peppers in the winter as I find them tasteless otherwise. It takes a bit of time as everything as to cook very slowly but this is the secret to a great flavor.

Soak a handful of porcini in water until soft.
Cook about one red or yellow pepper with one small onion in a couple of tablespoon olive oil.
When very tender and almost falling apart add porcini with their water. Simmer until the mushrooms are tender and add one 400 gr can chopped tomato. Cover and simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 more min. Ad 2 tablespoon cream.

Serve on short pasta for 2. You will love the marvelous aroma in the kitchen, buon appetito!

thank you +Good Food Tutor Please note that the picture show the point when I add the mushrooms. The end result is more red because of the tomato. It always goes great with guests.

Once, rural bread had to be hauled to bakeries for baking, and the aroma persists.

Pasta is my favorite food in the world. Pasta is sublime and comforting in its many forms, colors and textures. For an Italian cook, making pasta represents the very essence of cooking. It's not on...
