Double Sausage Pizza

Double Sausage Pizza by Patti Fisher

Ken’s friend David came over so Ken could help him fix his computer. To thank him he wanted to treat us to take out pizza. Oh no, my friend, Patti can make a sausage pizza to make shop owners cry.

Grilled Chicken, Chevre on Portabello Mushroom

Grilled Chicken, Chevre on Portabello Mushroom by Jason Freund

Swordfish Braciole

Swordfish Braciole by Franco Lania

In the restaurant we cut this on an electric slicer. It is faster and more accurate than by hand. It is also dangerous if the fish is frozen to hard or if it is not frozen at all and is to soft. “Trick is to have it semi frozen when cutting home cooks I do not suggest the machine method use the method stated…
