    So this is my fish dish. The first one was salt baked carrots, burnt leeks, fillet of hake, shellfish bisque (not shown) apple purée, plaice and shellfish mousse wrapped in squid ink pasta. My improved version was a salmon mousse, fillet of salmon, pea purée, pickled cucumber spaghetti, citrus...

    Here, in the US, we have a tendency to, usually, serve pastas with heavy tomato sauces or white, creamy cheese sauces, but some of the best pasta dishes are simply pasta tossed with a good amount of olive oil (or butter) and some fresh or sautéed vegetables, especially come summertime when those...

    When it comes to pasta it is easy to get into a rut, making the same sauces over and over. For most people that means either red, tomato sauce or a white "Alfredo" sauce. In Autumn I like to serve pasta with caramelized cabbage and bacon. This is a great late summer, early fall pasta dish...

    The other day I received, from one of the supervisors who works for me, a bunch of fresh herbs from her garden. She gave me some sweet Basil, cinnamon basil, and fresh oregano. I was thrilled, as just that morning I had been out in our flower beds, at home, picking a few tomatoes. We don't have...

    This has been a great summer, here in Wisconsin,for a lot of farmers. We have had a relatively mild summer, with plenty of rain. It's been years since I've seen corn and soy bean fields look as lush and green in the middle of August, and the corn is taller than I remember seeing it in ages. This...

    It's the first week of March and the weather has taken a decided turn towards spring here in Wisconsin. What that means exactly is that the thermometer has finally risen above freezing. I'm not getting my hopes too high yet, as there is still a very good chance for, at least, 1 or 2 more good...

    Last Saturday I took my daughter out to the woods. Not only would I get a chance to spend some time with my 3 year old as we stomped through the woods, but it also gave my wife a little quite time without the 2 of us. Besides, though a little early, conditions seemed pretty good for hunting down...

    You've heard me say it before and I'm sure you will it again, many times, from me, but great food does not always have to be complicated. Oftentimes all that great food requires is starting with a great product and using good technique. A perfect example of this is a very simple and...

    I love Mac and Cheese and can't believe that in all my posts I have never given out a Mac and Cheese recipe. Today I remedy that. It started earlier today when my wife requested something grilled for dinner. I had been craving pasta but seeing as she wanted something grilled I decided that I had...

    In the last few weeks, we've been ordering in pizza quite a bit, eating leftovers and reheating homemade soup. I felt it was time I make a special dinner for my wife. She tends to eat a lot of pasta and noodles so I wanted to stay away from those, but I was craving carbs so I figured I do a...

    Oh yeah, show off those sexy cooking skills by whipping up a nice alfredo sauce that is not watery, very flavorful, and sticks to the pasta. For home cooks the easiest means to make an alfredo sauce has always been to buy it bottled... SHAME ON YOU! It's not hard to do and buying the ingredients...

    Hi ho, TheBEEF! here with a simple Eyetalian style dish that is not as oily as standard pesto sauce. The number one complaint I get from a lot of people involving pesto is that it is too oily and it is messy etc... This is mostly true and many restaurants have removed Pesto from their menus...

    My friend Jacs and I headed down to Ask For Luigi for a night out. I had heard lots of good things about this small cozy intimate space so was quite excited to try it out. The menu and the execution of it did not disappoint. I was pretty close to needing someone to heave me into a wheelbarrow to...

    So I guess the title for this post is somewhat misleading... This can't really be called a lasagna but, to economize on words in the title, that's what I went with. I do hope the purists out there won't be too scandalized, but you'll understand as you read on. Easter weekend was upon us and I...

    I recently got a manual pasta machine. You may recall that I received an all-in-one machine from my Aunty Rose (which works great), but I wanted to also have the option of literally cranking out my own fresh pasta. The Gluten Free Girl has a fantastic recipe for fresh pasta that I had been...

    We bought an organic butternut squash about a week ago and I wasn't able to decide what to do with it until today. A long time ago, I watched David Rocco make butternut squash gnuddi (is that the right spelling???) with a hardcore Italian nona on his show and it just looked so good and so...

    So remember how I was talking about wanting a pasta machine? I was just gifted one a couple of weeks ago! That's one of the wonderful things about being a part of a large family... There's always someone, an Aunty, in this case, who is able to help out or has just the thing you need (or...

    So I'm starting back at work this week and it's already been quite the adjustment. I think Baby E has been dealing with it better than I am... Just a quick post for now about my kitchen frenzy the day before going back to work. Being in the kitchen and making this with my hands calms me, and I...

    D and I recently had an amazing (awe-invoking, happy-dance-inspiring, we-are-still-talking-about-it-it-was-that-good) dinner at La Quercia in Vancouver to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It's been three years already?! Crazy. We had the 7 course family-style menu, which runs $50 per person...
