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…

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…

These are often served on kebabs as part of a tapas dish called Pinchos Morunos. You can follow the same directions below, cutting the meat into 1 inch chunks and grilling for…

Pollo in porchetta

Pollo in porchetta by Frank Fariello

When I served this dish, several of my dinner guests were wondering what the 'secret' ingredient was that have this roast chicken such a special flavor. Of course, rotisserie chicken is almost always wonderfully juicy and luscious, but pollo in porchetta--chicken prepared in the manner of roast suckling pig--is something else.

Pasta a risotto (Risotto-style Pasta)

Pasta a risotto (Risotto-style Pasta) by Frank Fariello

One of the guilty pleasures that I have never, up to now, revealed to a living soul is my penchant for late-night pasta snacks. But not just any pasta, but pastina of the kind usually used for soups, cooked in just enough liquid (usually a mixture of water and milk) so that by the time the liquid has almost evaporated, the pasta if…

Cauliflower & White Bean Sauté

Cauliflower & White Bean Sauté by Yvonne Tally, Your Fit Gourmet

This is the perfect bed for any grilled fish. Of course, my number one is salmon because it is not over powered by the earthy flavor of the cauliflower. Great the next day added to a mixed green salad with the left over fish. Simply puree it and make a fast no-cream creamy soup.
