Salads

I’ve been wanting to make a panzanella salad for a while now. Every time I see someone making it on a cooking show or read about it in a cook book, I get the urge to make one. Unfortunately, an hour goes by and I forget about it all together! Fortunately for us and all …

We’ve been on quite a duck kick lately. Not that I’m complaining. It’s just so freaking good. We can’t get enough of it. What’s so great about duck, is that it isn’t terribly expensive, so when we see it, we have to buy it. When we roast a duck, we usually incorporate it into a …

Few things go better together than prosciutto and fruit, especially melon. Now, I know that it is yet to be “melon season,” but I just couldn’t help myself.
