Sunday Pasta®: Orecchiette con la Rucola (Arugula)

All hail arugula…the Caesar of salads.  This may come as a surprise, but arugula was not discovered twenty years ago in some trendy London or New York restaurant. In fact, from the Latin name eruca, it has grown wild around the Mediterranean since Roman times, when it was consumed as an aphrodisiac....more

Easy Thai Chicken Pizza

This recipe incorporates three of my most favorite things; pizza, Thia food and peanut butter. How can you go wrong when you add all these things together?

Heavenly Buttermilk Brownies

I am a creature of habit. When I find something I like, I tend to get obscenely stubborn and stick with the same things for long periods of time, refusing any kind of change. This includes but is not limited to, my favorite sneakers/hoodie/bands, etc. More to the point, this includes my all time favorite brownie recipe.

Trying to beat the ho-hum of dieting - No sugar BBQ sauce

Linda@nothingbutblueskyesThey say, ``Don't call it a diet. Call it a way of life." I've been living the sugar-free, low-carb way of life for a while now. I use real fats, none of that processed stuff. I've even inflicted a self-imposed ban on gluten and wheat products. I eat very well. In fact, I eat EXTREMELY well, which is why I find it frustrating that my weight is sinking ever-so-slowly. ...more

Sunday Pasta®: Cavatelli con Ricotta e Piselli (Peas)

My dear friend Tantalus strikes again.  Just try to take a nibble. I dare you. It’s almost torturous of  me to tantalize you with this tempting and titillating treat  since it will be nearly impossible for you taste. So simple, yet so out of reach. Why?...more
