Roasted Broccoli

Roasted Broccoli by John Spottiswood

This roasted broccoli recipe, adapted from the Barefoot Contessa, is really wonderful. It has a lot of flavor. We served it with a mild pasta, and it was just a wonderful combination. Don't be worried by the lemon juice and zest. They impart a subtle flavor that adds a nice dimension to this dish.

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.

Shrimp in Green Garlic Sauce

Shrimp in Green Garlic Sauce by John Spottiswood

Wow, this is a really powerful and delicious dish. If you are looking for subtle flavors, search elsewhere. But if you're in the mood for a garlicky, "must dip my bread in every last bit of that sauce", type of dish, you cannot beat this. I'll admit our kids are not normal, but all four of them downed these shrimp and were dipping…

The Buona Pasqua Lunch and The Secret Of No Stir Polenta by kathy gori

Easter around our house is like the Tri-fecta of family holidays. Not only is there the big celebration of Easter, a huge deal in Italian households. But at Casa Gori, we also add in my parents anniversary and this year, my fathers' 91st birthday. Last year for his 90th, he got an iPod. Probably he was the oldest iPod owner out there…

Pasta with Tomato and Roasted Eggplant

Pasta with Tomato and Roasted Eggplant by Nancy Miyasaki

A adapted this from a recipe in Alice Waters' Chez Panisse Vegetables cookbook. My other eggplant pasta dishes all call for fried eggplant, which is delicious but messy and time consuming. So I was eager to try a roasted version. I slightly prefer the flavor of the traditional, fried eggplant, but given the reduction in effort I…

Roasted carrots are a delicious surprise. They lose their strong 'carrot' flavor and become mellow and sweet.

Chicken Saltimbocca With Mushroom Marsala Sauce

Chicken Saltimbocca With Mushroom Marsala Sauce by Bob Vincent

I needed to use some leftover Prosciutto from a previous dish so this was the result. It was tasty with the Marsala mushroom sauce. I served the chicken and sauce over Angel Hair pasta but it would be good on its own without the added carbohydrates. I smoked the chicken with Pecan wood but pan frying or oven roasting would be fine…

Garlic and Oregano Roasted Tomatoes

Garlic and Oregano Roasted Tomatoes by Denise Fletcher

These plump, scarlet, glistening little bullets of flavour are wonderful bobbing about in soup, tumbling around strands of spaghetti or linguine, smooshed into a herby, dimpled foccacia, stirred into steaming risotto or rice or riddling a fat, buttercup-yellow omelette. The uses for them are legion. And, nothing could be simpler. You…

Caesar Asparagus, Low in Calories, Big on Deliciousness

Caesar Asparagus, Low in Calories, Big on Deliciousness by Skinny Kitchen with Nancy Fox

I’ve never been so excited about a vegetable dish before but this one is worth raving about. It’s just like the classic salad but it’s made with roasted asparagus instead of lettuce. I’m keeping it skinny by making homemade multi-grain croutons and drizzling with a delicious light Caesar dressing. The skinny for each serving is 95…

I am enamored with pasta, tomatoes and basil recipes and have tried out several. This one is from Cook's Country (April/May 2015) and indeed has robust tomato flavors by roasting them! See Useful Links below for an earlier posted and similar recipe that we liked well too.

Slow-Roasted Pork Stew with Fennel, Tomatoes, and Olives by John Spottiswood

This is one of those fantastic recipes where you put a spoonful to your lips halfway through the preparation and you smile in amazement. The combination of flavors is just that good...and very original too. I've never had anything quite like this. The fennel, onions, garlic, olives, tomato and wine all just meld together into one…

It's In The Bag. Perfect Potatoes In 45 Minutes...No, Really! by kathy gori

As most food bloggers, I'm always searching for the glamour shot. Not for myself mind you, that coal barge sailed a long time ago. I'm looking for sexy food. I'm looking for the glimmer on a tomato, the flash of a fishes' scales, the beady dew drop on…
