Stuffed Bell Peppers

What do you do with a bunch of bell peppers?? You stuff ’em! You can really put whatever you want in a stuffed pepper recipe–vegetarian, vegan, ground beef, etc. I had some leftover veggies in my fridge that weren’t necessarily enough to serve as a side dish so I mixed them, cooked them up, and […]

Gnocchi with a mushroom cream sauce

I’m on a carb kick. No, seriously. I’ve literally had pasta or gnocchi every day this week. Do I feel guilty? Nope, not one bit! And neither should you! I was raised in a pasta-focused household so I was never indoctrinated with this American mentality of “low-carb” this and “low-calorie” that. I was raised with […]

Orecchiette con broccoli

I am definitely on a pasta kick. This takes about 20-30 minutes to make, is healthy, is extremely flavorful due to the pungent garlic and sharp parmigiano cheese. And it uses De Cecco pasta! Sounds pretty perfect, if I must say so. If you don’t know about De Cecco, check out my last post where I talk […]

La gringa hace Carne con papas..or in English–Beef Stew!

My gringa-ness is really apparent in this city. I’m blonde, blue eyed, and white as shit. Think I stand out?? I would say about 98% of my friends are Cuban or Hispanic and I am Italian-American; it makes for an interesting experience! However, having lived in Miami for about 7 years my Spanish has become […]
