Recipe of the Week | Potato Scones

Recipe of the Week | Potato Scones

Potato scones, called tattie scones or totties, are common fare in Scotland. An article printed in the travel section of the NY Times in 2005 says that: Ask where the name scone came from, and you may be unwittingly caught up in a local controversy. Many dictionaries — even the Scottish National Dictionary — say […]

Recipe of the Week | Asparagus and Sun Dried Tomato Frittata

Recipe of the Week | Asparagus and Sun Dried Tomato Frittata

There is something about the combination of asparagus, tomatoes and Fontina cheese that makes this recipe unique. I’ve made this same frittata with a number of different cheeses and always come back to Fontina.

Recipe of the Week | California Quesadillas

Also known as goat cheese, “Chèvre” has a distinct, tangy flavor. Made from (you guessed it) goat’s milk, it’s available in soft, semi-soft and firm varieties. Check labels when you can.

I like to serve it with a sparkling wine. The history of the bruschetta dates from the Etruscans. It […]

Recipe of the Week | Harissa-Spiced Potatoes with Lemon

Harissa is North Africa’s favorite hot sauce. The word for this fiery Tunisian chile paste is derived from the Arabic verb harasa, “to pound” because it is traditionally made with mortar and pestle. The main spices in harissa are hot red chili peppers, coriander seeds, caraway seeds, and cumin. I like to coat Yukon potatoes […]

Chèvre is the French name for cheese made with goat’s milk. Fresh goat cheese is soft, creamy, tangy, and easy to spread or melt. When it is mixed with fresh spinach and a little onion or garlic powder it makes a super-tasty filling. Baby asparagus provides crunch. Good stuff! The crepe pancakes can be made […]
