FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

Well, this French Fridays with Dorie was a little different — but in a really good way. I didn’t quite know what to expect but it seemed sort of like a scallop pizza to me. And what does pizza need? A little cheese. I know some people do not like to mix cheese with seafood but — I am not one of those people.

I also decided to add a little color to the top, by way of some chopped arugula leaves. The pop of green was exactly what . . . → Read More: FFwD: Scallop and Onion Tartes Fines

FFwD: Fresh Tuna, Mozzarella, and Basil Pizza

Fresh Tuna Mozzarella and Basil Pizza

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is one of my favorites – Fresh Tuna, Mozzarella, and Basil Pizza and the recipe is even online here. So delicious!

I did change some things though — I made individual sized pizzas (8-inch) rather than the appetizer-sized 4-inch ones. Also, instead of puff pastry, I made actual pizza dough. This recipe, which is a favorite (with half AP flour and half spelt flour). And, let’s see….oh yes! I added the mozzarella and onions to the top of the dough for the initial 15 . . . → Read More: FFwD: Fresh Tuna, Mozzarella, and Basil Pizza

White Polenta with Sausage, Chard and Fresh Mozzarella

White Polenta with Sausage, Chard and Fresh Mozzarella

This was a recent meal at our house and even though I accidentally made two “errors” with it, the meal was still delicious. So, I think we’ll call this one both forgiving and versatile.

Error number one was not realizing this recipe made two cake pans worth of polenta (not a big deal as the other polenta is safely in the freezer awaiting a dinner soon) and error number two was baking the polentas in the cake pans. Also not a big deal since, as far as . . . → Read More: White Polenta with Sausage, Chard and Fresh Mozzarella

Cibo Italian Restaurant in SE Portland

Cibo pdx

In the last few months (year, maybe? I am bad at judging time), it seems that my stretch of SE Division street has just exploded with new places — Ava Gene’s, Xico, Lauretta Jean’s, Sunshine Tavern, Cibo. And I’m sure there’s more I’m even forgetting. Of this group, we’ve been to Cibo twice so far and I can’t wait to go again. It was a bit crowded on a Tuesday night for our last visit, so we started at the bar and moved to the table when one opened up.

Naan Pizza with Garlicky Yogurt & Greens

Naan Pizza

Occasionally, I find myself coming home from work, feeling very hungry and having absolutely no idea of what to make for dinner. I do know that I want it to be relatively easy and super, super good, though. Just such an evening was the beginning of Naan pizza. See, I really wanted pizza and we had everything to make pizza except pizza dough or even a boboli crust stashed somewhere in the fridge.

“Think, me. Think,” I thought to myself. I even searched the fridge for some english muffins, for the in-college-favorite, english muffin . . . → Read More: Naan Pizza with Garlicky Yogurt & Greens
