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.

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.

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs

Italian Wedding Soup with Turkey Meatballs by Salad Foodie

(Well that’s a good marriage isn’t it?) I looked at several recipes of this popular soup, selected aspects of a few, added some…

Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan

Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan by myra byanka

Easy to prepare, lower calorie version of this dish. For maximum tenderness, I recommend brining the breasts in 2 qts. water and 1/2 C table salt for 1 to 1 1/2 hours and rinsing them in cold water for several minutes. Or, take a kitchen mallet or rolling pin and put the whammy on 'em.
