Alcapurria

Alcapurria by ANNEMARIE RIVERA

Alcapurria is basically a fritter made of green bananas and yautia (taro root) and stuffed with meat. I have also had them made with yucca (cassava root), which are extra tasty. If you happen to find yourself in Puerto Rico you can find them sold in the roadside kiosks and cuchifritos. They are best enjoyed sitting on the beach…

Italian Meatballs

Italian Meatballs by Salad Foodie

Years ago I had an Italian neighbor who became a close friend. I always commented on her delicious meatballs and one day she shared the recipe with me. I have made them ever since about the same way. You can vary the meats using what's on hand, but I usually select lean ground beef, turkey, chicken or lamb, with an equal amount of…

Chicken Cordon Bleu - Schnitzel Style!

Chicken Cordon Bleu - Schnitzel Style! by Salad Foodie

I fell in love with veal cordon bleu prepared schnitzel style in restaurants while living in Germany in the late 60's. But stateside, veal was hard to come by when I first began to replicate the recipe, so I subbed chicken breast. I have come fairly close to the 'authentic' versions my memories provide of this delicious main dish. I…

Chile Rellenos

Chile Rellenos by Unorthodox Epicure

Chile Rellenos are traditionally cooked in a light, airy batter. While that is a delicious method, Panko provides more contrast in consistency — and seems to absorb less oil.

Honey and Sea Salt Plantains

Honey and Sea Salt Plantains by Sean Kervin

The humble plantain seems to be one of the most misunderstood fruits in the grocery aisle. Most people pass over these green bananas in favor of their more popular yellow cousins, yet they are wonderful to cook with. Treat them just like a potato and boil, fry, or mash them for a slightly unique experience. This recipe is very…

Cooked and flavored Arborio rice is formed around a filling of tomato, meat and peas, coated in breadcrumbs and fried until golden brown. When I make them they're about the size of a baseball,but you can make them slightly smaller. . Soft and crispy…

Zeppole

Zeppole by Frank Fariello

Zeppole are so easy to make—after all, they are basically just fried pizza dough balls—it is almost embarrassing to post about it, but since it was one of my favorite snack foods that Angelina made, it deserves pride of place on this blog. And, in any event, who doesn't like fried dough?

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever by Mihir Shah

I love chile rellenos and this is a spectacular recipe - I use a little less cheese than you'll probably get in a restaurant, but it "feels" better that way. Feel free to add more cheese (or use different kinds of cheese). Enjoy!
