Blue Crab Boil

A few weeks ago my husband came home from work with a surprise for me, a plastic bag filled with live Blue Crabs. Oh yea, that’s what I want to see at 5pm after a rather stressful day, a big bag of live sea creatures. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but sometimes I do […]

Panna Cotta di Riso con Fragole

As I was going through my latest “La Cucina Italiana” magazine, I found a pudding recipe that sounded interesting and it used rice flour as the thickening. I love rice flour and use it often and with a little salt, pepper and soda water, it makes the best light breading for shrimp! But when I […]

Vanilla Poached Pears with Chocolate and Almonds

I served the Vanilla Pears with Chocolate and Almonds last year for our Christmas Eve dinner and they were so easy to make and so pretty. I actually saw a photo of Chocolate-dipped Pears in magazine advertisement for wine, tore out the photo and went to work figuring out a recipe. I’m considering making the […]
