Chicken Parmigiana

November 2, 2009

Chicken Parmagiana is perhaps one of the simplest, most under-made recipes. At least it is here at Cuisine Capers. It is hard to say why that is, given that it is a full-flavored, hearty dish that really hits the comfort spot.

Cooking with Tagines

March 8, 2009
My Tagine

Morrocan cooking is one my my favorite types of cooking.  I love the exotic blend of ethnic flavors that combine into this style of food.  The diversity of flavors come from Arab, Moorish, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, African, and Jewish influences.  When creating a Morrocan dish, typical spices would include cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, pepper, paprika, […]

Gallina De Madre - Mother Hen Toast

  This summer, Saturdays have turned in to a leisurely meal outside on the deck, enjoying the shade of the 250 year old oak tree, the gentle breeze, and the mild early summer temperatures. And in such a relaxing, civilized setting, not just any lunch will do.

Bolognese Carbonara

May 11, 2008
ragucarbonara_small.jpg

Bolognese alla Carbonara Bucatini I’m not too sure what to call this recipe, for it is not a traditional bolognese, and it is certainly not a traditional carbonara.  On the other hand, it combines elements of both of these dishes into a hearty, satisfying pasta fitting for Sunday dinner. I start with a base of good quality Italian Sausage, […]

Giada De Laurentiis Strikes Again

December 30, 2007
Orechiette with Sausage, Beans, and Mascarpone

Orechiette with Sausage, Beans, and Mascarpone There are few episodes of “Everyday Italian” that I watch that do not inspire me to make something… immediately.  We affectionately call Giada the “Skinny Italian Chick” around these parts.  We watch her Food Network show, get really hungry, and refuse to believe that she eats more than the […]

Carbonara with Pancetta, Peas and Ramps

May 20, 2007

The day started out dismally, with a cold breeze and even colder termperatures. I had previously had plans of making a light, grilled meal comprised of spring vegetables and grilled chicken, but as the day moved forward I couldn’t shake the cold feeling in my bones and in search of comfort food I went. Enter […]

Gorgonzola Galore

May 16, 2007

Gorgonzola has rapidly become one of our favorite cheeses. We cook with it, we eat it after dinner as a cheese course with wine or port, and we always have it on hand. Much of the reason for this is because we are fortunate enough to live close to one of the top Gorgonzola producers, […]

Penne with Grilled Beef and Arugula

August 24, 2006

Penne with Grilled Beef and Arugula One of the shows that I still try to catch on Food TV is Everyday Italian. It never fails that something is prepared on that show that is sure to make me very hungry. We sit and watch it on Saturday mornings, and comment on the fact that “the […]

Chicken braised with peppers and onions

August 23, 2006

I’ll start this out by saying that I am not a fan of bell peppers. This has always puzzled me, because it really should be something that I enjoy. Despite that, I could do with a world with no bell peppers. However, two things force me to cook with them – my CSA produce box, […]

White Bean and Bulgar Ragout

February 25, 2005

White Bean and Bulgar Ragout A surprisingly fast, and incredibly filling dish, White Bean and Bulgar Ragout is one of those dishes that you can throw together using just about anything that might be in your refrigerator. This particular version included some carrots, olives, tonatoes, spinach and chicken thighs. This time it happened to be […]

Braciole

February 13, 2005

Braciole with Farfalle It’s always a dilemma when a holiday like Valentine’s Day comes along. The desire to make a special meal is strong, but on the other hand, we make so many “special” meals routinely that it’s really hard to come up with something truly special. We discussed it a bit, and actually came […]

Filet of Sole with Pesto Shrimp

January 29, 2005

On a recent evening I stopped by the grocery store on my way home from work, with no idea in mind about what we were going to be having for dinner. I felt like eating healthy, but lean chicken and pork was getting a bit old. As I passed the fresh fish counter, the filet […]

IMBB: Weisse Bohnen Eintopfen

January 23, 2005

Weisse Bohnen Eintopfen I’ve been away from the Is My Blog Burning events since October, but it’s time to jump back in! IMBB #11: Beans, beans the musical fruit…, hosted by Cathy from My Little Kitchen. This was the perfect theme for the middle of a snowy, cold winter. We tend to make comfort-style food […]
