Welcome to my website! I am originally from England and live in America. I confess...I miss my family, my home and my country. In fact I miss all of Europe, it's my playground and my classroom and it keeps calling me back! This website helps me feel connected as I continue learning about
its traditions, food and great getaways. Feel free to stop by the RHODESIDE to learn more about this wonderful continent.
This is another delicious pasta recipe that I fell in love with. It’s so easy to make and can please the vegetarian as well as the meat lover. Just add chicken strips to the dish or follow the recipe exactly for a wonderfully delicious meal. Serve with salad and bread sticks.
Toad-in-the-hole is a famous British pub grub and actually dates back as early as 1861 from a recipe by Charles Elme Franatelli who used leftover meat, not just sausages in his dish. Spam was used in place of sausages during WWII – another wartime variation which is also popular today. The name basically derived from the looks of the dish, a toad sticking its head out of a hole, apparently, I don’t think mine does it justice. These sausages baked in Yorkshire pudding batter are usually served with vegetables and onion gravy!
Yesterday I was visiting a friend and I mentioned that I had an abundance of tomatoes from the garden in my fridge. I normally make a lot of bruschetta and salsa this time of year, which I’m still going to however, she gave me this recipe which requires quite a few tomatoes so, guess what we had for dinner last night? This is such a delicious way to enjoy pork chops, I was in heaven and so was my husband. In fact, he said it was the best pork chops he’d ever tasted.
Kladdkaka – Is the Swedish name for this delicious chocolate mud cake. Kladdig means sticky/gooey, like wet mud, so I’m assuming this cake should look like a heap of dirt from your back yard but I guarantee you it doesn’t taste like it! This delicious, rich and creamy chocolate cake is so easy to make and goes great with whipped cream or ice cream.
