Creamy Polenta with Shredded Beef Braised in a Tomato Wine Sauce ~ #SundaySupper

Creamy Polenta with Shredded Beef Braised in a Tomato Wine Sauce ~ #SundaySupper This post is sponsored by Florida Beef Council in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own. My most treasured memories growing up in a Sicilian home are centered around food and family. Food brought us together. It was the cornerstone of our relationships and our lives. We always ate a long table or a couple of tables meshed together; eating as one unit. You didn’t get up from the table once you finished. Life was too exciting sitting...

Bourbon & Peach Pork Belly Bites #SundaySupper

August is National Peach Month and the super fabulous people at Sunday Supper are sharing recipes with peaches in them! You’ll find over 50 recipes from starters to desserts to help you celebrate peaches for the month of August. A big shout out to Sue Lau over at A Palatable Pastime for being our event host! To create a recipe with peaches, I had to include Bourbon.  Why? Well, I’m currently in Kentucky, the birthplace of Bourbon. It produces 95% of the world’s supply. It was a given that anything I made with peaches needed to include Bourbon.     How else...

Chocolate Pizzelles – The Italian Waffle #SundaySupper

Pizzelles are by far my favorite cookie. Not too sweet, yet immensely satisfying. I grew up eating Pizzelles. They were a constant in our home, especially around the holidays. My mother and my Aunt Sally would churn them out by the dozens all with the grace and ease of a leaping gazelle.   Little did I realize the finesse and hard work required to produce these Italian delicacies until I started making them on my own (for this post). As I tend to my battle scares (blistered fingers) I’m in awe and have deep gratitude for the women in...

Clams Casino Dip with Bacon #SundaySupper

Clams Casino Dip with Bacon #SundaySupper This clams casino dip with bacon has always been the dish I bring to a friend’s house or a tailgate party.  It’s a take on the traditional clams casino my mother would make when we had an abundance of clams.  For this recipe I substituted canned clams to bring down the cost.  You may use fresh clams but I have found there isn’t a difference in taste.  This recipe is easy to make, is served in the dish in which it was baked or it can be fancied by serving them in individual clam shells. Ingredients:...
