Italian Pickled Vegetables

Italian Pickled Vegetables

My grandfather had a very large garden and my Nana would wait for him to bring in the fresh vegetables. My Nana and I would take the fresh vegetables and make a bunch of jars and we would serve them on our Sunday dinners along with her antipasti. You can really cut the vegetables anyway you want. I like some slices and others in a stick form (sliced).

My Nana insisted that all of the vegetables except for the cauliflower and artichokes to be the same shape.

You can also find this recipe in my cookbook: Paleo Italian Cooking.

Italian Seafood Paella
  • Complexity: medium

Italian Seafood Paella

This is a traditional Paella recipe with an Italian twist. I love creating unique recipes by adding several ingredients and spices to a traditional dish. This is a great “family” meal because you can place the pan right in the center of the table for everyone to serve themselves. Don’t forget to include fresh Italian bread to dip into the pan juices!

If you are in the Hartford area there is only one seafood store you need to visit. All of the fish in this recipe are courtesy of my friends at City Fish, Wethersfield, CT.

Of course I used D’Aprile San Marzano tomatoes from D&D Market – The best Italian Market in Connecticut!

Check out how we made this on the EGG® below!

Italian Spiced Egg Salad

I always have fresh veggies in the house and wanted something different to snack on during the day.  You can make this chunky and top a salad or enjoy a good egg salad sandwich.

Italian Vegetable Soup
  • Time: 30 mintues
  • Complexity: easy

Italian Vegetable Soup

It's very cold here in Massachusetts in December.  I love soup and so does my granddaughter Brooke.  No matter what time of the year it is wr love to make soup.

Since I keep many vegetables in the refrigerator, in the pantry and in the freezer.  Frozen vegetables are so handy.  Don't you get so mad when you buy fresh vegetables and you don't use them for a few days then when you grab them - they are bad!  I HATE wasting food and money.  That's why I keep vegetables I don't use everyday in the freezer.

Now I am not advertising for Bush's but I do love their chili starter beans.  You also use the juice in the can to add extra flavor to your soups or chilis.  If you use "regular" canned beans please drain and rinse before adding to your soups and chilis.

This soup is amazing!  If I may say so myself.  Enjoy xo Cindy

P.S.  Since I haven't been feeling good and sipping on green tea with fresh ginger and tumeric.  I decided to shred some tumeric into the soup as well.  #tumeric

During the summer we love grilling and we have the best butcher near us.  ED Stearns Meats has everything we need for the summer.  Some of their meats are frozen but you can just call them and they will take them out and have them ready for you.  Also, the butcher will cut your favorite slices of meat right in front of you!

I was at Stearns getting veal chops, pork butt and decided to grab some Lamb Shanks to make this delicious bolognese.  Give it a try!  Very yummy...  I served with roasted cauliflower but you can serve with pasta, polenta or just eat out of bowl and dip your bread!  Enjoy...
