    Shrimp Fra Diablo #Recipe

    This Shrimp Fra Diablo #Recipe is just what you need to spice up your menu! I had the pleasure to dine at Timpanos Italian Chophouse in Tampa the other night. It was a great meal and I tasted just about everything on the menu from meatballs to mussels. One of my favorite dishes was the Shrimp Fra Diablo. Packed with flavor and a little kick, the Shrimp Fra Diablo was a personal favorite so I asked, and they gave me the recipe to share with you. Their recipe is for a single serving, but I would multiply by five (because that’s MY size single serving) …..

We know you’ll enjoy this Crab Tostadas as much as we did!

  • Quick and Easy Sweet Italian Sausage Recipe

    Quick and Easy Sweet Italian Sausage Recipe

    Quick and easy can also be bold & flavorful as I found out when I whipped up a last minute supper, using Sweet Italian Sausage and other things I already had on hand. Sometimes I just don’t feel like going to the store. It could be too hot, to cold, raining, I have a blog post to write or I just simply feel like getting creative and envisioning myself on the set of Chopped.

  • Rachel Gaffney’s Real Ireland

    Rachel Gaffney’s Real Ireland

    It’s no secret that going to Ireland is on our Bucket List! Seeing Rachel Gaffney’s REAL Ireland however, is on the very TOP of that list! You may have seen her in Gourmet, Martha Stewart Living or in syndication on Hulu, ATT Uverse, AOL, and foodie sites such as iFood. However, her passion and her love for her homeland of Ireland really takes center stage in conversation, the stories she shares, the mouth watering recipes she prepares and her vast knowledge of all things Irish.

    By way of County Cork, now living in Texas, Rachel epitomizes the traditional-meets-contemporary approach to Irish recipes and foods shared by The Irish Kitchen. We’re excited to share a couple of her favorite recipes (and surely to be ours) for Apple Irish Whiskey Tarts with a side of Homemade Brown Bread Ice Cream.

    Escarole and Beans, A Skinny Italian Side Dish #Recipe #SundaySupper

    Escarole and Beans is my absolute favorite skinny Italian side dish. It’s almost a soup, but, my friend Lucille who first made me this for me says it a side dish so, it’s a side dish! It is so easy, fresh and flavorful. It’s also filling and if you’re anything like me, someone who likes to eat large portions, you will love escarole and beans too! It’s a no guilt dish with an 80z serving having only about 125 calories and the perfect compliment to any Sunday Supper!
