Fruit Cobbler

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Monday, February 2, 2015, In : fruit cobblers 


Mixed Fruit Cobblers

Fruit Desserts? Yes and Low Calorie too... How can that be? Well I will share that with you too.

When I make these fruit desserts I usually use frozen organic fruit mixes. You can mix and match them and that way you get good quality fruits and a larger variety of choices during the Winter season too.

Put your fruit in a large mixing bowl if frozen let thaw before adding sugar and spices to it.

Ingredients:

2-4 cups of mixed fruits
1/2-3/4 cup of white or brown sugar
1/2 tsp. of ...

Ricotta for Dessert?

Sweetened Ricotta Dessert

This dessert pictured above is very light and creamy to the tongue. Textures and visual is what most foodies look at when they go food shopping, they like bright colors and appetizing layout as much as a artist likes the perfect sunset.

When I make something new I make sure I like the combinations of the ingredients first, second I see if I want to tweak any of them, third then I see if I can make it taste better.

Chocolate/Raspberry Drizzle Cake!

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Monday, April 7, 2014, In : Drizzling 


Cake?
Divadish likes to mix it up a bit even with her cakes. I do not like thick frosting on anything especially cakes as I feel it weighs it down.

Why not eat a slice of cake instead of a mouthful of icing? it seems reasonable to me.

So what I do for my cakes, cookies, and cupcakes is use a drizzle stick, this is a great little tool and it allows you to decorate anything from desserts to a garnishment on a plate with a flick of the wrist and a small amount of product to make your desserts or ma...

Carrot Cake has been around forever, kind of like Aunt Myrtle's Fruit cakes...!

Only difference is everyone will eat this cake.

Being a Chef I decided to change this old time favorite up a bit.
Here is how I improved it for my tastes and hopefully yours.

First I added 1/4 cup more sweet raisins.
Then a 1/2 cup more of sweet organic carrots.
Added a little more moisture to batter.

The air is crisp, the leaves are starting to change, and our minds drift off to warmer meals, and pumpkin desserts.

The sauce is thicker , because it has tomato chunks in it and chopped onions.
The combination's of simmered meats, and a special mix of seasonings, and letting it slow cook for over 8+ hours gives this dish it's rich but delicate taste.

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 ...

Pumpkin Spice and everything nice! 
Creating new flavors for morning muffins is always exciting.
This muffin was no exception.

Then added a little extra cream to make everything a little more rich.
Combined all the above, blended to creamy and baked in jumbo cupcake liners for 
app. 16 minutes @ 350'

Greek Chicken

Whenever I dream about Greece, my fathers homeland, I get a little homesick.
What would it be like to sit a look out into the Ageian Sea and be eating a Authentic Greek meal.
Since my birth I have been blessed with good genes as they say, 1/2 Greek, 1 /2 Italian.
You are so lucky everyone keeps telling me, I wish I was you!

Spaghetti Bolognese #47

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Tuesday, March 22, 2011, In : Chef Gianna 

Spaghetti Bolognese

Spaghetti Bolognese
This is one of Divadish's all time favorite comfort foods!
It is rich, full of tender meats, and it is definitely one to Lust for!
The sauce is thicker , because it has tomato chunks in it and chopped onions.
The combination's of simmered meats, and a special mix of seasonings, and letting it slow cook for over 8+ hours gives this dish it's rich but delicate taste.
For this particular  recipe I used Flank steak & 93% ground chuck.
I browned th...
