What to make for Italy? So many scrumptious options. My Italian friends sent me recipes and tried to sway me. But for me, there was only one recipe to make: Triglie con Pinoli e Passerine (Mullet with Pine Nuts and Raisins) also known as triglie all’ebraica. I first had this dish about 20 years ago […]

Eva was really sad about Covid ruining Halloween and we were in the midst of the A’s so I tried to figure out something fun and creative for her. Austrian ghoul-ash (ha ha ha) – Goulash.

Picante de Pollo – Bolivia

Posted 2 CommentsPosted in Beans, Bolivia, By Country, Chicken, Latin food, Main dishes, Recipes, South American food

My mouth is still on fire from the Bolivian Picante de Pollo. It calls for 1/4 cup of Cayenne pepper….I made a half recipe so I used half…but theoretically the full recipe would have been even hotter. Luckily we had some of the Belizian rice left from last night to temper the heat from this […]

Main course was supposed to be a veal cutlet in a beer and carmelized mushroom sauce but we used turkey instead. The greatest discovery though was Stoemp which looks […]
