Bacon Quiche

Artichoke Frittata

I made this artichoke frittata appetizer for my friend who was going straight to an Italian dinner party from the airport. Her husband brought me the ingredients on Friday, and picked up his patter with the appetizers on his...

O Foods for Ovarian Cancer: Onion-Fig Tart

I was inspired by a delicious looking tart I saw in a bakery in Washington. The figs on top immediately got my attention, so I decided to try making one myself. I began with a simple flaky tart crust,...

Pasticcio di Riso

I got the idea for this recipe from Janie at Panini Girl. I decided to use what was in my fridge, and create a version without tomato sauce. Here is what I used. For the rice, I used Janie's recipe...

Potato-crusted Onion Quiche

This was a weird combination of something like a quiche that I made up for dinner. For the crust, I used Emeril's recipe for a "Manly Quiche", and sort of made up the rest. Crust: 3 cups frozen hash brown...

I ate this as a first course last summer at Cibreo in Florence. It was their potato-ricotta version. Judy posted a recipe for me on her blog, Under a Tuscan Stove. I served it to our guests last night for...

Savory Bread Pudding

We were having pork chops. I wanted something warm and savory to go with it. I browsed through a few recipes, and then I tweaked a few things in a recipe from Emeril, and came up with this: Two large...

Panzarotti

This recipe is ambitious. If you have never made it before, you will have to get over two fears: 1. Fear of fillo dough (or phyllo) 2. Fear of using LOTS of butter These are crispy fillo dough triangles filled...
