Lasagna

In case you haven’t noticed I have been in a little bit of a blogging rut. Now, I have been cooking, don’t get me wrong. But… I’ve been cooking a lot of the same old things. Things that are on my old blog Summer’s Fusion. I’ve been having some inner debates lately: should I put…

Caldo e Freddo Eggplant Pasta

 Hot and Cool. Spicy and Minty. This dish has it all. For those of you who followed me on my site Summer’s Fusion, before I combined forces with my little big sister on this much prettier site, will remember this dish. I might have some repeats at times, but I need to get the best stuff on shecooksupnice! Anyway,…

Shrimp Scampi

I have had this dish twice in the past two years. Both times it was prepared by my Italian grandmother. I’m sure you can imagine how good it is, especially down in Florida after a day at the beach. Well, I just got back from vacation (hence the lull in posts) and being met with 30…

Pasta with Spinach, Feta and Pecans

I whipped this little doozy up Monday night (I”m behind a few recipes).  It was utterly delicious. I think a combination of high quality ingredients can take one far. This was a very simple idea that was scarfed down by both of us. Usually I am not a huge greens fan, but I had an…

Easy Chicken Parmesan

Another foot of snow is barreling towards us, and I once again retreat to my kitchen and my comfort food. Here is a quick and easy chicken parmesan recipe if you’re looking for a satisfying crowd pleaser. (I apologize for the horrible quality of these photographs, but it was a dark and gloomy night, and…

Friar Tuck’s Gnocchi

This weekend I had a Roma Reunion with two girls I met when I was abroad. We started our adventure at Eataly in Manhattan and ended with an empty container of nutella. Needless to say, we had a filling weekend. Dinner tonight I wanted to do something healthy, but not boring. After such delicious Italian food,…

Sausage, Tomato and Arugula Fettuccine

 This here is from la mamma di le sorelle Nikki e Summer (oppure Estate). “I found this recipe from the Cooking Light magazine, December 2010.  Pete and I had this tonight, it was delicious.  I substituted spinach for the arugula only because the store was out of arugula.  The spinach was delicious, next time I will…

Penne (meno) all’Arrabbiata

This is a Roman dish that I had a few times abroad and found pretty out of this world. Typically this dish would be followed by profuse sweating and the urgent drinking of water, and, in some extremes, blacking out.  However, if you are going to be marrying an Irish Lad/Scotsman from South Shore such as myself, you…
