Ricotta for Dessert?

Posted by Gianna Elizabeth Ianos on Saturday, April 12, 2014, In : 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.

With all there is out there today to choose from in seas...

Creamy, Dreamy, Chicken Pot Pie

How do you spell Orgasmic? or maybe a better question is how would something taste with that description. What comes to my mind is Awesomeness x a 1,000!!!! Good food is not a rare thing, is it? by the TV commercials you see today one would think so....

I swear every other commercial is for Jenny Craig with the now skinny Marie Osmond, OMG, she looks great but really she is hawking for Jenny Craig? What gives, except $$$ for her checkbook. Then the next ad is for...

Beef Stew

Beef Broth Stew by Chef Gianna

What makes really good stew?
Some say it is the stock
Others the seasonings
Still some insist it is the meat

I say it is all and just a little more.
When making a pot of stew you have to know what you feel like putting in it.
Sometimes I put celery, and potatoes, and a creamy beef gravy.
Other times I will make a broth base stock add green beans carrots, broccoli, and onions, and even mushrooms.

Then there is the uncanny way we all put our ingredients together.
