It just goes with everything!

I do make my potato salad @ Divadish a little bit different though. 
My mother had a very good recipe that she gave to her daughters years ago,and we have changed it a bit over the years.

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Saturday, January 28, 2012, In : Pizza for Dinner 



Pizza, I think who ever invented it way back when should get a Big Wet One right on the Lips....!

I Love making my own though, I use Boboli Crusts, and I brush a olive oil & garlic mixture over top and bottom of crusts then broil for app. 3-5 min. till slightly browned and crisp.
Then I proceed to do my layers of seasoned Italian Red sauce,then meats, this one pictured has Italian stuffed chicken sausage, low in calories, but great in taste.
I slice the sausage thinly, add onions, red or sweet y...

Soup's on @ Divadish Kitchens!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Sunday, September 25, 2011, In : Soups and Fall Meals@Divadish 

Divadish  believes the best quality and taste comes from making your food in small Batches and by Hand!
This is the only way to make good food says Chef Gianna, and good food is what Divadish is all about.

The picture above is just one of those small batched soups that comes out of our kitchens.
Chef Gianna likes to call it one of her Masterpieces, because it is not a watery, thinned down version of what other resturants tell you is soup.
It is thicker, full of meats & vegetables, cheeses, ...

Pumpkin & Fall Desserts!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Tuesday, September 13, 2011, In : Fall Desserts! 
The air is crisp, the leaves are starting to change, and our minds drift off to warmer meals, and pumpkin desserts.
This is one such dessert. Prepared a touch different than most recipes which are all sugar and not so much pumpkin. 
At Divadish we want to focus our attention to all the flavor of pumpkin has to offer. Combined with spices, a cinnamon and butter base and sprinkle it all  with a crumble topping and spiced icing.
These little babies are moist, light and just the right amount ...

Cookies, Cookies, Cookies, we must have our Coo...

American Classic!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Tuesday, May 31, 2011, In : Italian Potato Salad 
Potato Salad, is always a mainstay on everybody's summer picnics, BBQ's,Graduations,
or just about any event. 
I think it is because it is a all American favorite, like Apple -Pie, or a Ball park frank, or our hamburger.
It just goes with everything!

I do make my potato salad @ Divadish a little bit different though. 
My mother had a very good recipe that she gave to her daughters years ago,and we have changed it a bit over the years.
Here is my version:
  • Heavy Mayonnaise
  • 1/4-1/2 of half & hal...
