Tomato and crispy prosciutto bruschetta
11/19/2013 19:39:11 PM
I like to cook Italian food, which is good because I'm married to a Sicilian and a favorite appetizer of ours is bruschetta. Since this is a 'raw' dish I don't like to add chopped garlic into the tomato mixture because to bite down on raw garlic is too overpowering and takes away the swee..

I haven't eaten canned soup for as long as I can remember. From what I can remember it's not very good. Despite the ad's that say 'new improved flavor' or 'lower sodium', doesn't matter, don't care. It's still salty mush to me that has been sitting in can on a shelf for months and al..

Apps, e-books and websites are all hubs to millions of recipes, it’s a virtual cookbook that’s changing by the minute. Ask yourself this; is there any need to have the recipe page propped open on your counter while you are following a recipe? Or do we prefer to have our laptop sitting ne..
Yorkshire pudding, what is it?

Growing up in England Sunday dinner was a weekly tradition in our household, The British Sunday Roast. Every week it would be a different roast, lamb, beef, pork and was always accompanied with Yorkshire pudding. It adds a wonderful crispy element to the meal and it is a great vessel for your gravy..
