Roasted Red Pepper Asiago Cheese Dip

Cheese is quite possibly the greatest food of all time. If you don’t love it, we can’t be friends. No actually we will be friends- I’ll eat the cheese for both of us #glutton. UCLA, I found your cheese. I recently learned about PDO Asiago Cheese. And it tastes SO good. Especially with a nice glass of red wine. Olivia Pope style. You…

What about Asiago Cheese??

Confession: I love cheese. This cheese obsession led me to connect with the Asiago Cheese Consortium, a wonderful place that you’re about to read all about. Yay.   Get ready to be enlightened. Until recently, I didn’t know that authentic Asiago cheese only comes from the Asiago plateau in Italy and all other “Asiago” cheese is just an…

G-ma’s Chunky Tomato Sauce

Straight from Alanno-scalo Italy- I present to you: my grandmother’s quick and easy chunky tomato sauce (I call her G-ma, you can too).

They’re simple and super easy. I usually make them the…

Skinny Spaghetti (Squash)

My Italian relatives would be utterly and completely devastated if they saw this post, because we (as Italians) live, eat, and breathe pasta. Quite honestly, I can’t be eating all that pasta! It’s delicious while you’re engulfing the entire plate, and then it just sits in your stomach and is carb overload. Ignore this post…

Panzanella (A New Twist on Salad)

Salad.  It can get boring. Especially if you have it everyday of the week. Sometimes, you just need an interestingly delicious lunch to get you through the workday. Panzanella is a twist on a salad that learned from a chef in Venice. Essentially a salad without the lettuce. This recipe is full of fiber and…
