Creamy, rich, dark chocolate mousse is my go-to treat for that touch of romance on a special day, like, say, Valentine's Day. One spoonful and I close my eyes, sink into the sofa and emit that audible "Mmmmm." My heart races (in a good way) and love is in the air. You know the feeling. Yes, …

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity for people to share their love and affection and of course, sweet treats. Chocolate reigns supreme on this day devoted to sweethearts. While a heart-shaped box of chocolate certainly makes for a delicious gift, those looking to increase the wow factor can pu…

One of my daughter’s favorite dishes from Tellini’s Pasta Market is their Italian casserole. Begin with a cheesy baked rigatoni, which is heaven on a plate as is, but top it with a zesty marinara sauce. It’s the best of both worlds when you can’t decide whether you’re craving an Alfredo or m…

It's been a long time since I've been out on New Year's Eve, so I'm not going to miss not being able to attend a big party to toast the new year at midnight. Heck, where I am, we're not even permitted to be out after 8 p.m. or buy booze after 6 p.m. I suspect many of you will be staying home…

This is a fun dish for all the pepper lovers out there. I used a variety: jalapeños, bell peppers, Anaheims and poblanos. You can use a mixture as I did, or choose your favorite. The addition of the eggs will give an almost soufflé-like texture to the casserole.

A group of newly acquainted food writers wandered up the cobbled roads of a Roman hill, presumably toward a Michelin-starred restaurant, in April 2016. Our loose parade extended half a block, whatever that means in Rome. Atop the hill was an architecture firm, in the penthouse of which await…
