Bangers & Mash


We have this cozy English Pub in Philadelphia that serves the best British fare in the area. It’s actually one of Heidi’s favorite restaurants! The Dandelion serves comfort food in a warm, charming setting. We recently met Heidi and her Hubby there to celebrate her Birthday. That evening it was a beautiful night and we sat outside; two weeks later we took my son to celebrate his 21st Birthday and sat inside, upstairs in a quiet comfortable cubby. Bangers and Mash is what I ordered both times. They’re so tasty I decided to give them a go at home. They turned out wonderful… Continue reading

Rosemary Shrimp Skewers With Romesco Sauce

Rosemary Skewers With Romesco Sauce
Who doesn’t love brunch, and not just for the Mimosas and a yummy Bloody Mary! When I had a Brunch recently I wanted to serve the shrimp a little different than the usual cocktail; a way that would still impress, could be made in advance, be without much effort and still taste delicious. I remembered a shrimp dish I made a long time ago using rosemary stalks as the skewers. My garden still has lots of rosemary. I also had just made a big batch of roasted red peppers… Presto, the dish came together!!! Don’t you love when that happens? Continue reading

Tuna Noodle Stuffed Peppers

Tuna Noodle Stuffed Peppers
Our garden is still producing copious amounts of green peppers. I am literally overflowing with them. Stuffed pepper soup along with stuffed peppers, western omelets and green pepper salads have been on the menu. Trying to think of new ways to use them has become a daily challenge. Well yesterday I was also missing my grandmother and whenever I think of her I always think of my Classic Tuna Noodle Casserole… It was one of her favorites. So I decided to make it, but instead of a casserole, I would stuff the peppers with it. Turned out to be really good. I love when that happens! Click on the Classic Tuna link to read a little bit about my Grandmother. She was an amazing women! Continue reading
