A Brief History of Cheese

The other night I was leafing through my Science of Cheese (Tunick) book in preparation for some cheesemaking. I was planning to make two different cheeses, but buy raw milk for only one of them (it costs 4 times as much as ordinary pasteurized milk where I live!). 1,773 more words

Chicken and carrots in creamy wine sauce.

This recipe is nostalgia with a twist. As a teenager, when I began helping with dinners, I remember three specific meals I made often: Kraft dinner (but even my younger siblings could do that one), spaghetti with red sauce, and a “French” chicken dish consisting of cooked chicken, ready-made Chicken Tonight sauce and noodles. 851 more words

Rigatoni al Forno With ShitakeMushrooms, Radicchio, And Sweet Italian Sausage

Maybe my grandmother wouldn’t have approved of me adding sausage to this traditional Italian dish. I could just hear her now saying, ” Linda, you’re supposed to use the pasta shells with the ridges, not Rigatoni, that’s why it’s called Conchiglie al Forno With Shitake Mushrooms and Radicchio”. 772 more words

Focaccia with Carmelized Onions, Pear and Blue Cheese

Pears have been plentiful this year and I had to find a savory recipe to use extra pears when I discovered this fantastic recipe.  The focaccia recipe itself is wonderful and worthy of a totally different set of toppings; however, it’s hard to beat pears and blue cheese. 241 more words
