This recipe is like the D‑Day inva­sion at Nor­mandy: Messy and complicated!

Easy Pierogi Casserole

Pier­o­gis: A pil­lar of Pol­ish cuisine!

Bubble & Squeak

This recipe sails right past “Oh I say!” and “Wot’s all this then?” and approach­es Ter­ry-Thomas lev­els of sheer Britishness.

The great thing about this recipe is that the ingre­di­ents and steps list­ed here are just basic sug­ges­tions for how to assem­ble the pie. You can put just about any ingre­di­ents togeth­er and still wind up with a killer tasty pie.

Traditional Irish Breakfast

It’s not a heart attack on a plate; it’s a heart attack, high blood pres­sure, dia­betes and a stroke on a plate.

Rosemary Focaccia

Focac­cia means “flat bread” in Ital­ian. Sor­ry if you were look­ing for a com­pli­cat­ed back story.


A rus­tic South­ern Italy com­fort food with three of my favorite fea­tures: It’s easy; you have a lot of time to hang out and drink with fam­i­ly while it sim­mers; and it makes the house smell great.

Soffritto-Style Seasoning Blend

This isn’t a sof­frito, strict­ly speak­ing; sof­frito is usu­al­ly a mix­ture of onions, car­rots, and cel­ery soft­ened with olive oil or but­ter. I’m call­ing it a sof­frito because it’s based on a Trad­er Joe’s Sof­frito sea­son­ing blend I like but want­ed to play with the blend. I like using it for ham­burg­ers, meat­loaf or oth­er recipes with ground beef.
