OK, it has been a REALLY long time since I've last posted (way too long) !!
Since I've last posted, I have learned some really great recipes, been to some fun places, and now it's time let you in on some fun secrets.
First off, I've always looked on and off for bottled Marinara sauce, and have been dissapointed. As a results, I have been resigned to the fact that I probably would have to continue making Marinara sauce (which I enjoy, but it really takes a long time). I recently tried Barilla's Tomato & Basil Marinara Sauce, and I have to admit .. it is really good. It has a nice balance and does not have that acidic after-taste. I have used it in making various Parmesan recipes (including Vegetable and Eggplant Parmesans). They turned out GREAT !! SO .. go check it out.
Second, I have to tell you that I LOVE Blue Plate Diner. My wife and I really enjoy this place. More to come in a later post.
Third, I will have to introduce you to Dutch Pancakes. We took a trip to Europe earlier this year and became acquainted with this dish. Recipe to come !!
Finally, I have had a couple people ask for a recipe for Butternut Squash soup. Look soon for a post.
SO, stay tuned ...
