Cheddar Mac 'n Cheese


When I was making this dish I went a bit more traditional than the confusing cheese laden "gourmet" version restaurants can offer. This is a good ole super cheesy Cheddar Mac ‘n Cheese stemming (of course) from a grandmother’s influence. The milk is warmed and the cheddar is melted. The noodles are softened, tossed, and coated. The bread is processed, buttered, and browned. The completed classic is served up casserole style ready to be appreciated by any lover of cheddar. Enjoy!!

Deep Dish Pizza, Do It Yourself


I called up one of my pizza eating friends and suggested we try our hand at making a couple of Deep Dish Pizzas. I blended semolina, all purpose flour, and corn meal for a slight granular crust lightly brushed with a garlic butter egg wash. The pie itself was gratuitously filled with hearty marinara, mozzarella cheese, chicken and meatball or pepperoni. Unsurprisingly, we ate the first pizza in its entirety while waiting for the other! Yes, yes: we were hungry. Have fun with how you fill it up and amaze yourself with a pizza very few will turn away! Enjoy!!

Green Tea Cookies

Cookies with a hot cup of tea sounds like the making of a great afternoon snack, so why not combine the two for a little crumbly herbal crunch? A batch of Green Tea Cookies mirrors the steeping of an actual cup, hosting a light green tea flavor throughout the easy-to-break treat. They are perfect dippers, mildly seasoned, and a delight to eat. Enjoy!!

Fresh Fettuccine with Creamy Cilantro Pesto


Following the flavor is why I pursued this path of pasta. This simple Fresh Fettuccine combined egg with semolina flour for a stretchy hold, surviving a rather thin press and boil. The egg pasta has a yellowish color, can be formed into strips, as used here, or into whatever imaginable shape the dough can stand. The Creamy Cilantro Pesto is a modified version of my Zesto Cilantro Pesto, adding a deliciously tangy finish for my latest dinner feat. Enjoy!

Holiday Pudding


I never realized how central a Holiday Pudding could be to the season until I crafted one of my very  own. The premise is quite simple: a moistened and sweetened combination of bread, nuts, dried fruits, and a bit of liqueur. The resulting dessert was like placing a star upon a tree: it made the table complete. The pudding is filled with festive flavors of the season, pairing nicely with the texture-laden creamy topping. It was easy to make with quite the elegant finish. Enjoy!!
