Mancini Fried Peppers

2 days 22 hours ago

How Many Peppers Did Peter Piper Pick? These Fried Peppers made by Mancini are sooo good! I recently had them served with crackers and cheese. I took a photo of the label and have since found them on The Hill at DiGregorio’s. The sweet red and green peppers include onion and a hint of smokiness....

The King Cake, a Cause to Celebrate

2 weeks 2 days ago

We didn’t import the iconic cake from Joe Gambino’s Bakery in Louisiana. We got ours at Federhofer’s Bakery in South County. I gotta say, it compared favorably with those I’ve eaten from the Gulf region.  Tradition Reigns The crown-shaped delicacy abounds with religious symbolism. It’s served following  Epiphany (January 6), the day marking the arrival...

Jungle Stew for a Quick Skillet Meal

2 weeks 4 days ago

An Old Standby Years ago when I was cooking for seven every day, I often needed a quick meal.

Getting a Rack of Pork “Fork” Done

I stopped by Costco recently (actually I never just “stop by” Costco; it’s a 20-mile round trip from where I live.). I made the trip because I was wanting their six-pack of stuffed peppers, that’s so doggone good. Sadly, they hadn’t gotten any in that day, but Cyndy snagged a Rack of Pork, that was...

3 weeks 2 days ago

  Cruising in The Grove “What’s the name of the place we’re looking for?” Cyndy asked as we drove east on Manchester. “It’s something like the “Butcher Shop,” I said. “No, that’s not it. The first word is “Beast.”  “Right, aaah. . . Beast, Butcher and Beyond,” I joked. As a last resort, I pulled...

What Are You Doing New Years?

4 weeks 2 days ago

New Year’s traditions abound, depending on your heritage and geography. Many involve food. But my Scots-Irish grandmother put less emphasis on the food eaten, then who was the first to come to the door on New Year’s Day: a tall, dark-haired man brought luck to the household, but a light-haired woman did not.
