Cookbooks To Savor

Blog powered by Typepad




Made this delicious dish last night, and am enjoying left-overs at my desk for lunch. The smell alone of the garlic cooking in butter is well worth the effort of procuring the good ingredients.


I don't even know you and you've inspired me again. I love your foodblog and that it coexists with your Mama blog, so much so that I copied you (and referenced you in the introductory post: http://pickyfingers.blogspot.com/2006/02/introducing-pickyfingers.html), so thought it only polite to let you know.

Happy mama-ing,


Just had this for dinner last night --- soooooo good and very easy! Any recipe that starts out with a stick of butter has to be good! Thanks Stefania!


Yum - had this tonight for dinner - easy, quick and delicious. Thanks!


Must make this right away. Thanks!


Made it! It was wonderful. I had fresh, farmers' market garlic and tomatoes -- SO good. I'm going to do a post about it soon and link to yours...


made this last night - I am a hero at my house!!! Thanks so much.


Mmmm. I'm making this tonight. Using macaroni, because one of my children doesn't like "pasta" but will eat macaroni 8P


MMMmmmmm. My 2 year old and I enjoyed this for dinner. We actually found san marzano tomatoes for sale: .99 a can. I'm going back to stock up so I can make this fab recipe a couple of times a month.


I think I commented on this great dish after I made it last time... I made it again tonight and was very sad when I realized I had purchased the CRUSHED tomatoes instead of the whole ones. Despite my mistake, it turned out just as great! Yum Yum!

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
