Plated Porcini Mushrooms and Polenta - Flirty Foodie

I’m feeling pampered. This past weekend, the hubby ‘D’ cooked every single meal. Some time ago, this would have probably annoyed me. The kitchen is/was my domain. But, I’ve come to realize that he does this because: 1. He actually really likes to cook. Over the weekends, he has the time and energy to do […]

My husband “D” has a favorite ‘new’ toy – our pressure cooker. How we came to acquire this pressure cooker goes back to when we were preparing to get married. We decided to hit the mall together in search of our shoes for the big day (I figured it was ok that he saw my […]

braised peas and artichokes 2 - with logo

My mother in law made this dish (with potatoes) a few months ago. And I was like this is freaking fantabulous. I’ve been dreaming about it ever since. This recipe is also oddly vegan.

farinata

My husband is from Liguria (the birth place of farinata) but we live in Milan. Every so often to bring the taste of Liguria to our house I’ll make this farinata for him. In Liguria farinata is considered street food, almost never made at home. Traditionally it’s made using a well seasoned copper pan and […]

Now that winter is coming to an end, I’m trying to eat up all of my favorite winter vegetables. One of these new favorites is “broccoli romanesco”.
