    Dinner 2021

    @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
  2. 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

    Dinner 2020

    Good morning everyone, I say this every time I post, because it's true: Your dinners all look incredible! This was my Thanksgiving dinner! I had braised/roasted turkey thighs, stuffing with sage and sausage, mashed potatoes with a very pale gravy (Still learning!), sweet potatoes roasted with garlic and rosemary, two very similar salads. One is fennel, arugula, green apple, orange and pomegranate, and the other is shaved Brussel sprouts, green apple, pomegranate and walnuts. We couldn't decide between the two so we made both! We always make lasagne, the kind with béchamel sauce. N
  11. I agree!! Though we make lasagne as part of our tradition every year. It makes my son happy. ☺️☺️

    I just drank this, same vintage! I thoroughly enjoyed it, lovely on the nose, very easy to drink!
  13. With the pandemic completely out of hand in Milan, I had to do a lot of the shopping through my CSA delivery that came today. It's days early, but the stuff is usually so fresh, it lasts. Even though we're only going to be three, we decided to do a pretty sizeable (in terms of variety) spread anyway. No one could agree on what to leave out. We're going to make a few thighs (the ones I got are tiny), stuffing with sage, sausage and mushrooms, mashed potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, salad with fennel, orange, arugula, apple, walnuts and pomegranate, lasagne and an apple crisp.
