Feast of the Seven Fishes (Year 2)

This year’s Feast of the Seven Fishes is probably going to be reduced by a couple courses to maybe 5 or even just 3. The important part of the Feast is that it’s an odd number of courses. The most traditional of my courses is the baccala alla vicentina, which is one of my favorites. … Continue reading »

Sicilian Pantry Pasta

Sometimes I realize the fridge is empty but the store is so far away….those are the times I look to the pantry to figure out what I can piece together. I usually have a can of Italian tuna, which is a great way to get some protein into what would normally just be starch-based. Add … Continue reading »

Fiesta Fish Tacos

Mexican food always means a party. There’s a time and place for (Italian) comfort food when I’m looking for a pick-me-up, and then there’s time for fish tacos and margaritas. I love these because they’re not so heavy, and I can make them quickly and concentrate on spending time with friends. Plus, when margaritas are … Continue reading »

Baked Mini Crab Cakes

I’m a huge fan of crab in any form, but crab cakes are always classic. I came across this method for making mini ones and I wanted to try it out. I have to say, it’s cute for a party and a much easier way to do bite-size crab cakes but I think next time … Continue reading »

Lamb Burgers

My burgers are always a big hit and I keep my dad’s secret guarded very closely. I’m not sure if I will post that recipe at some point, but for now, it’s a secret. Sorry! For now, you’ll have to try these delicious lamb burgers. I like lamb because it’s rather lean and flavorful with … Continue reading »

Moroccan Lamb Soup

After more than a week of eating healthy, this soup tasted so great with just a little ground lamb. I’ve started craving carbs, but not meat– until I started smelling this meat cooking. Because it had been a while, the soup was even more satisfying. I don’t cook a lot with all these spices, so … Continue reading »

Tuna Meatballs

These were so good, that they might be the favorite meatballs around the apartment. In the New Year, we’re trying to be a little more healthy, and so….no red meat for a while…or at least as long as we can hold out. The cinnamon gives them a little unusual flavor that’s hard to place but … Continue reading »

Marinated Sardines

This dish is essentially the same as marinated fresh anchovies, so you can use whatever is available. Your fishmonger will most likely fillet them for you, but I did mine myself and it wasn’t that difficult — and I used the scraps for fish stock. They are nice and tangy and make a delicious start … Continue reading »

Shrimp alla Buzara

I got the idea for this one from a Lidia Bastianich Feast of the Seven Fishes, and it’s delicious. It was a little unclear if the breadcrumbs are meant to be sprinkled on top or if they are supposed to thicken the sauce, but either way it’ll work. She says it’s from the Northern Adriatic … Continue reading »

Linguine and Clams

I make linguine and clams at all times of the year, not just for the Feast of the Seven Fishes. But piled up in a bowl we brought back from Ravello, it really does look like a party. I tend to remove the clams from most of the shells before bringing to the table, just … Continue reading »
