Dinner in a pumpkin: Halloween fun!

October 31, 2011

Yes, this pumpkin looks a little scary. Fact is, he’s been roasted whole. I started making “Dinner in a Pumpkin” many years ago when my kids were tiny.  Then it became a tradition.  My kids think this is what MUST be done before they head out trick or treating.  It has become a tradition.  I […]

Super Simple to the table in less than 30 min Pasta!

I view pasta a bit differently after visiting Italy. The pasta itself has a better flavor, and is never gummy and overcooked. I have since become addicted to imported, air-dried pasta that I can purchase at Caputo’s, an Italian deli and market in Salt Lake City.  It does cost more, but then it stretches farther […]

I like to take it easy on Sundays when I can.  It doesn’t always work out that way, but armed with my trusty crock pot I can often pull it off.  There is just something amazing about coming home from church and smelling the delicious aroma of dinner nearly done. Roast and potatoes are the […]

Meatballs are so versatile.  They can be used in sandwiches, with pasta, in Italian wedding soup, as appetizers–really, the […]

The idea of stuffed meat is always impressive, isn’t it? It looks so difficult.  It’s got style. Luckily, it really isn’t all that difficult to do. Every once in a while I want to stuff some meat. Here is a rendition I just tried over the weekend.  I thought it turned out great!  You can […]

Stop!  Don’t open that jar of Prego!  Or Ragu!  Or Hunts! You can make a supremely superior tomato sauce at home without having to resort to spaghetti sauce that contains corn syrup.  And “natural” flavoring.  I mean really…corn syrup?  Gag a maggot. This is really quite simple….and what I have to do if I am […]
