CLASSIC MARYLAND CRAB CAKES

CLASSIC MARYLAND CRAB CAKES

OUR recent trip to Las Vegas was indeed full of surprises – good surprises! The first surprise (at least to me) was a dinner reservation made by my husband at Gallagher’s Steakhouse in New York-New York Hotel Casino. We miscalculated our schedule (perhaps due to my excitement) and arrived at the restaurant way too early for our 7:30 p.m. reservation.

CHICKEN WINGS IN HONEY BARBEQUE OR LEMON PEPPER

EVER since I can remember, I have always had a serious love affair with chicken wings. Give me a whole roast chicken and I will go for the wings first. That’s the reason why my family wouldn’t let me carve the bird during family dinners… I always get the best part!

TORTILLA DE PATATAS (SPANISH OMELET)

SPANISH are so passionate about their Tapas Culture. Tapas are small, bite-size appetizers or snacks served in Spanish bars and cafés throughout the day. In Madrid and some provinces in Spain, a tapa usually comes free with the drink. It is very typical to see customers standing at bars nibbling those little morsels and drinking caña (beer) or mosto (grape juice).

OSSO BUCCO IN GREMOLATA ALLA MILANESE

And even before I asked for my check, I knew that it would be an added favorite to my personal collection of recipes.

MIXED PAELLA

LIVING in the United States makes me miss so many Spanish dishes that I have grown to love. One of these is the Paella Mixta or Mixed Paella. It’s called ‘mixed’ obviously because it is a mixture of chicken, seafood and vegetables. Read more

MERINGUE SWEET POTATO PIE

MERINGUE SWEET POTATO PIE

LAST Halloween weekend, we decided to take that 6-hour drive down to Los Angeles just to grab a bite of Mommie Helen’s Sweet Potato Pie. Okay, the truth is we didn’t get just a bite… we also bought a whole pie to bring back to San Francisco and enjoy for the next couple of days.
