Polenta Budino with Plum Marmellata

I could hardly believe my eyes as I turned the pages of this month’s Bon Appetit…and saw this recipe in the R.S.V.P. section. A dessert from the famed Babbo in NYC. Now, I don’t know about you, but I may never have a chance to eat at Babbo, but this? This dessert is easy to pull off.

Quickie Tonkatsu Sauce

I love slightly sweet, slightly tangy Tonkatsu Sauce, but it can be a little hard to find, depending on where you live. Of course, there’s always Amazon, lol, but boy do I have to try to stay away from there if you know what I mean. My cupboards would be bursting, my bank account empty!

Take a Chance on Me

When I lost my beloved Gibson in early June, I wasn’t sure if my little food blog was the place to talk about it…but over the years Gibson’s been on my blog, here and there. When we’ve been on vacations, or walks, and you’ve heard about, from time to time, the food he’s eaten – especially the food destined to be photographed! He’s just always been a little part of my blog and a big part of my life.

Grilled Vegetables with Tonkatsu Sauce

Good news! I was just outside and there was a cool wind! By cooler, I mean cool (85 degrees F) compared to what we’ve had. I think that nasty old heat dome is passing by! I wanted to throw up my arms and dance. And maybe I did, just a little.:) I was like Rose in The Titanic. Well, older, chunkier and without Leanardo DiCaprio…or the ship. Ok, so I was just an old lady smiling into the breeze.:)titanic-rose-jpg_152711

Teriyaki Marinated Steak

There was a time when Flank steak was cheap! And so it goes with sudden popularity – a rise in price. Never mind that, though, because back in the day my Mom made this recipe with the elusive “London Broil.” Well, “almost” this recipe because I’ve up the game and the flavor on this old workhorse recipe.

Cream Puffs with Mascarpone Filling & Blueberry Compote

If there was ever a frugal “cheat” of a dessert, Profiteroles, or Cream Puffs, as they are often called, have to be it. Easy to make, requiring no special equipment, although a piping bag & tips is nice, inexpensive, and they can be made ahead. And once made, they can be filled & topped with all kinds of deliciousness. What more could one want?
