Risotto Corned Beef Stuffed Peppers with Tomato Cream Sauce and Colcannon

Recipes in this Post Risotto Corned Beef Stuffed Peppers with Tomato Cream Sauce Colcannon I remember as a child I really loved stuffed peppers, and my mother would buy a can of corned beef hash and stuff the peppers with that.  They were always so wonderful, real comfort food.  I have to admit, the first time I tried to make them, the peppers styed hard, and they just were not good.  I had given up on them, but I really had a taste for them recently. Now here is the perfect opportunity to have corned beef and cabbage, St. Patrick’s Day. Since there are only three of us, and our refrigerator is very small, I could not see any reason to buy a corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day, but I still wanted a traditional meal.  A can of corned beef was just the ticket.

Southern Italian Sunday Breakfast

Spane had a new haircut and I had a package of mild Italian sausages in my freezer on Saturday. In a moment of inspiration, I decided that I would make my girl friend Biba’s Mom’s recipe for Biscuits and Gravy.

So, when I saw the recipe and it said to quickly mix the fat and flour with your fingers, so … Continue reading

Pizza Fried Chicken

Recipes in this post Pizza Fried Chicken Even if a child does not like spicy food, presented with the prospect of pepperoni pizza (or pep-e-on-i as the toddler set says), a child happily stuffs his or her face with it. I like pizza, too, but some time ago, I decided that I did not like meat on pizza anymore.  Margarita pizza is the one for me.  I like to make my own, with a little help from Trader Joe’s (more on this later). So, I wanted pizza, and I also wanted chicken, but I don’t want meat on my pizza.  What to do, what to do?  I know!  Create Pizza Chicken! This is basically fried chicken fingers with sauce, but I must say, it really fulfilled my desire for pizza.
