Italian spinach and Feta Pasta

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!

Did you know....in 860 BC the Celtic discovered the natural hot springs and by the first century the Romans began building baths around these springs.

Founded by the Romans but virtually forgotten, it was made famous again in 1687 when Queen Mary discovered its healing springs and overcame infertility giving birth to a son 10 months later.

Italian Tuscan Pork Chops


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.

Swedish Kladdkaka

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.
