    Dinner 2021

    I guess you can't really tell from the picture, but this is Gnocchi alla Sorrentina (basically gnocchi in tomato sauce with melty mozzarella on top). There is too much mozzarella because I had 200 grams so I guess you can't see the gnocchi through the cheese! 😜 We made some wonton soup, fried wontons and spring rolls as a rainy day project. This might not be a dish for everyone, but my family loves it. It's a pantry dinner for when you have not done the shopping called Acciugata. It is garlic, oil, hot pepper and melted anchovies basically made the sa

    Dinner 2021

    We made a Mediterranean feast during the first crack of sunlight. I marinated the chicken in yogurt and spices and served with very pilaf-y rice and the usual suspects on the side. The veg is on different skewers lest some of the younger diners felt they were being poisoned! 😂 One of my favorite pizzas,- with tomato and arugula. We tried out whole wheat flour for once and made a crisp and thin pizza. Wasn't bad at all! Some Escarole and Beans. Photographs terribly, but tasty!

    @Duvel I finally made the Catalan chicken dish with meatballs and mixed mushrooms! Everyone here loved it and I will definitely make it again! It doesn't photograph well, I'm afraid. I did end up using chicken pieces as opposed to legs. With sautéed cime di rapa. This would be okonomiyaki that looks more like a frittata, made with cabbage and shrimp and before any sauces or anything else has been added as my son likes his plain. Finally, this is what my MIL would call "Tagliatelle Strapazzate". I think it's s dish she made up, but it's basically ju
  7. Fridays are a great day because we get our vegetable delivery, shown in the basket to be washed and processed. The next pic speaks for itself and then there is the wheat bread and another with assorted seeds like flax. We cut in half, freeze, and eat throughout the week.

    Thank you so much for the kind words, @heidih, @Kim Shook, @scamhi, @chromedome, and @chefmd! Here were some pork chops with mushroom sauce. Some tiny arancini And finally, orata with a clam and tomato broth. The clams were salty, so I had to make it more brothy than saucy, but I would have preferred it saucy! 😀

    Dinner 2021

    Hi everyone, I've been quiet as I got extremely ill for a long time and wasn't much cooking. (Nothing Covid related.) Things started to get a little better. Here are some recent mostly repeats. Because of my illness, I need to keep it pretty light and because I'm not feeling great, I like to keep the kitchen time to a minimum. I have a list as long as my arm of recipes I can't wait to make. Some whole roasted Orata the way I always make it, with potatoes, cherry tomatoes, olives and pine nuts. Whole roasted Branzino with capers, olives and parsley and sautéed c
