Strawberry Crostata

We loved this recipe by Jeff Mauro from the Food Network. He uses strawberry jam instead of mixing sugar to level up the “strawberriness” of this crostata. And if that wasn’t enough, he serves it with, you guessed it, strawberry ice cream (in our case, Pinkie’s Farm Strawberrific Frozen Yogurt). Here’s the link to theContinue reading “Strawberry Crostata”

Pasta Amatriciana inspired by Marcella Hazan

Fearless Apron Ingredient: Mesquite Bacon The classic pasta for this is bucatini, but we only had spaghetti on hand so that’s what we used.

Cooking 101: What’s The Difference Between Stock, Broth, and Bouillon?

Bouillon, broths, and stocks….3 things that a lot of people use interchangeably when they cook. But there are differences, and some are better for specific uses.VERY simply put, the differences are: 1. Stock – the liquid that remains after simmering meat, bones, and vegetables for a long time.

Onion Soup By Risa Regala

The secret to any robust soup is its base. While most recipes and chefs call for beef or chicken stock, most of us don’t have the time to prepare stock from scratch (spending hours and hours waiting for the liquid to reduce and develop its deep flavors). We mortals usually go for the quick-fix: theContinue reading “Onion Soup By Risa Regala”
