Tomato and crispy prosciutto bruschetta

Posted on 11/19/2013 07:39:11 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 sweet ...

Autumn minestrone soup

Posted on 11/19/2013 07:36:26 PM

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 all ...

Tis the season for cranberry's, those pretty little berries are everywhere. If you've ever been tempted while cooking to pop one of those juicy looking berries into your mouth, DON'T!

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.

The restaurant business in Las Vegas is booming at an alarming rate. Some are lucky to have 1 restaurant, but Chef Gordon Ramsay has 3. I visited Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill in Caesars Palace because I had to try Ramsay's version of the British classic, sticky toffee pudding. ...
