BEANS

This week the ingredient on the FLAVORS blog is BEANS. Let me start by saying I DON"T eat most beans! It must have been those lima beans my mom made me eat as a kid, or the fact that...

Sunday Slow Suppers #11: Butternut Squash-Leek Lasagna

Zucchini Fritters

Tortino di Polenta con Verdure (Polenta Tart with Roasted Veggies)

I've been wanting to make this for a while. I found the recipe in an Australian Italian magazine called Italianicious, Vol.4, Issue 3. (isn't that a great name?) It is a great way to use up leftover polenta. We...
