Frankie’s Cook Book now available as an eBook

I have great news! My cook book, Frankie at Home in the Kitchen, is now available as an eBook on Amazon. It can be downloaded to any device… phone, tablet, laptop or desktop. The regular books have been sold out for a while now (except for a few being sold at gouger prices on Amazon), so this is a great option for those who didn’t have an opportunity to purchase one, or would like a digital copy. Here is the link…

A delicious, elegant, simple appetizer for the winter months

Roasted Medjool Dates                                                     with Mascarpone, Gorgonzola, Pancetta, and toasted Pecans

Looking for a simple and elegant, yet very tasty appetizer?  If so, I’ve got one for you. I made these for a recent party at some friends house and they were a hit!  I would envision these being served in Sicily where dates are common.

Antipasti for the Holidays

Eggplant-Roasted Garlic Hummus

If you are looking for an idea for holiday gatherings, here are a couple you could consider… Homemade Rosemary Cracker Bread, or Eggplant-Roasted Garlic Hummus.  The cracker bread is easy, especially if you have any experience at all making bread dough (though it is easy enough for a beginner too!).  And the Hummus is something you can either use with the crackers, or as a delicious dip for raw vegetables.  And it is WAY healthier than most dips you would otherwise consume this time of year!  For recipes, click on their titles above.  Buon Appetito!
