No-Potato-Gnocchi Skillet Dinner (from scratch!)

You are never going to believe this, but I made this entire dinner in 1 hour and 15 minutes…from scratch (i.e. the pasta did not come out of a box).  We don’t have any time to waste! Let’s get started! First…the gnocchi!  And surprise! You don’t need potatoes…just lots and lots of ricotta (let’s not worry about fat content today) ? Ingredients: 2 cups ricotta 2 eggs 1 cup freshly grated parmesan 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp pepper 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1 and 1/4 cup flour *Mix all the above ingredients together until it forms a sticky dough*  ...

#StyleFoodLove Holiday Baking: SugarDoodles

Why are snickerdoodles so darn popular?  It’s obviously because of their semi-cake like texture.  And what is the secret ingredient that causes that texture?  It’s cream of tarter (which FYI is a powder, not to be confused with tartar sauce) :). I made these cookies on a stormy night.  They are quick and don’t require the precision that a lot of cookie recipes require. Ingredients: 1 cup butter – room temperature (plus 7 seconds in the microwave for optimal softness) 1 and 1/4 cup cane sugar 3 egg yolks 3 tsp vanilla 2 and 1/2 cups flour 1 tsp baking...

Brownies without chocolate = Blondies!

So…I’m not going to name names, but someone’s boyfriend forgot to get dessert for tonight.  And I had a craving for something sweet….so I whipped up this Blondies recipe right after dinner.  It took 7  minutes to get together and 25 minutes to bake.  And it was SO yummy!  So yummy in fact that I don’t actually have any good pictures of the finished product….because it’s mostly gone Ingredients: 1 egg 1/2 cup melted butter 1 cup dark brown sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tbs vanilla 1/4 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp baking soda 1 cup flour *Preheat the...

#StyleFoodLove Slow Cooked Sausage and Beef Ragout

This slow cooked meal is a french favourite, not to be confused with the Italian Ragu sauce.  Although I did serve this over rigatoni for dinner.  Ragout contains enough heartiness to be a main dish stew, or can be eaten over your favourite pasta, or with crusty baguette slices. Ingredients: Organic stewing beef – cut in pieces 2 chorizo sausages – removed from casings and broken into pieces 1 yellow onion – diced 3 cloves garlic – diced 1.5 cups carrot – grated 1 cup potato – grated 1 celery stick – chopped 1/2 pint grape tomatoes 1 can chopped...

#StyleFoodLove Sunday Meatballs and Capellini

Most of my meatball recipes involve baking the meatballs.  Not this one!  The little balls of goodness are browned and simmered in the same skillet as the sauce.  And…these meatballs have ground meat, sausage and…crackers (yup! That’s a real thing!) Ingredients: Meatballs Organic ground beef Two hot Italian sausages (casings removed) 1/2 grated onion 1/4 diced onion 2 tbs grated parmesan cheese 1 cup crumbled multigrain crackers (use your hands to crumble) 1 egg 1 tsp oregano 1 tsp basil 1 garlic clove – minced 1 tsp salt 1 tsp pepper 1 tsp paprika 1/4 cup olive oil Sauce: ...
