Lobster (The “Lovers Recipe”)

There are many recipes to cook lobster, some are excellent but boring, how many times do you want to eat a boiled lobster?  Others are good but quite greasy, cut lobster into half, put butter on top and broil, others are over complicated, and others simply disgusting.  Try my lobster and you will be happy.  […]

Oven-baked fillet of fish with fresh tomato sauce (Filetti di Cernia or altro pesce al pomodoro fresco al forno)

Do you want a very fresh, simple recipe for fish? This takes only a few minutes to prepare and cook. I use grouper or any other very fresh filet of fish.  When you shop for the fish, make sure the filets are of consistent thickness so they bake evenly. Ingredients for 4-6 people 1 filet […]

Octopus

My daughter, Martina, was just eleven years old at the time, and she liked rating my recipes with Betti. Anytime I prepared a new recipe, Betti, Martina, and any guest who […]

Pan-fried Pheasant with Grapes and Walnuts
