Chicken Parmigiana

November 2, 2009

Chicken Parmagiana is perhaps one of the simplest, most under-made recipes. At least it is here at Cuisine Capers. It is hard to say why that is, given that it is a full-flavored, hearty dish that really hits the comfort spot.

White Bean Soup with Ramps

Cooking with Tagines

March 8, 2009
My Tagine

Morrocan cooking is one my my favorite types of cooking.  I love the exotic blend of ethnic flavors that combine into this style of food.  The diversity of flavors come from Arab, Moorish, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, African, and Jewish influences.  When creating a Morrocan dish, typical spices would include cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, pepper, paprika, […]

I start with a base of good quality Italian Sausage, […]

Orechiette with Sausage, Beans, and Mascarpone

Orechiette with Sausage, Beans, and Mascarpone There are few episodes of “Everyday Italian” that I watch that do not inspire me to make something… immediately.  We affectionately call Giada the “Skinny Italian Chick” around these parts.  We watch her Food Network show, get really hungry, and refuse to believe that she eats more than the […]
