Summer Vegetable Soup

I ate a wonderful bowl of summer vegetable soup at Cantinetta Luca, and came home to re-create it. The only ingredient that was missing were some porcini mushrooms. Mine was pretty close, but the porcini would have added another...

Tortellini en Brodo

The highlight of our holiday cooking was homemade tortellini en brodo! I used Biba Caggiano's recipe for the broth and filling (but my standard perfect pasta dough from Rafaella in Bologna). It was wonderful! I have two large tubs...

Fennel-Apple Soup

This soup is easy to make, and the flavors of the fennel, with the sweetness of apples and tanginess of gorgonzola are a perfect blend. The soup is pretty healthy, with no cream added, so let that cheese melt...

Sunday Small Bites #8: PUMPKIN
