Fried Chicken&Boursin Sandwich

A great sandwich can be a wonderful dish. Put a few good ingredients together, add some love and voilà, a quick and most satisfying meal can be on the table in minutes, without breaking the bank. And yet, so many folks at home and in restaurants manage to screw up this simple task. Substandard ingredients, lack […]

Easy Does It # 33 – Brie and Capocollo Pie

> > As  I have mentioned before, I love to prepare my own pizza dough, pie dough, tortillas, fresh pasta, and a myriad of other things which are usually better (although not always) when home made. On the other hand, sometimes this is just not very practical or sensible, for example at times when there is […]

Today I Ate An Convertible………

Smoked Salmon, Avocado, And Pickled Onions Hoagie ( Convertible With Top Up / Convertible With Top Down ) > > Hero,  sub, foot long, hoagie, garibaldi, spuckie, blimpie, torpedo, zeppelin, bomber, poor boy, wedge, or just plain old sandwich – whatever you call a sandwich made of a long crusty roll split lengthwise and filled with meats/cheese/seafood/tomato/onion/lettuce/condiments and/or […]

The Buffalo – The Sandwich That Puts Most Others To Shame……….

While not as spectacular to look at as, let’s say, a five inch high monster loaded with 20 different ingredients, nor as expensive as a foie gras […]

Mexican Treasures – Guacamole, Escabeche De Cebolla, Salsa Mexicana

> > For  me, these three condiments are not to be missed to accompany any Mexican-style meal I prepare at home. In my opinion, they also fit very well with a wide range of dishes of non-Mexican cuisine from around the world. They pair nicely with steaks, schnitzel, sandwiches, salads, meat, seafood, vegetables, eggs, etc. In fact, I usually have at […]

Potato Soup With Smoked Pork Shanks, Fried Shallots And BBQ’d Corn

> > Am  I the only one who wishes dishes like this would widely be available in restaurants?? I am getting so very tired of seeing the same, mostly mediocre food on most restaurant menus. Of course there are a few exceptions, but these are mostly very high-end and not within reach of most of us […]

A Pig And A Hoagie

> < < > This  meal started out to become a traditional Asian-style braised pork belly dish, served with steamed rice and some kind of green vegetables. However, after starting the belly, I changed my mind and decided to go with another sandwich, because…….why not ? 🙂 > Bon Appétit !   Life is Good ! […]
