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…

I’m back! And with a long awaited Garlic-Parmesan Soup recipe

garlic-parmesan-soupWell it has been over three years since I last posted on this blog. Running our restaurant, Frankie’s Pizza & Pasta, just had to take top priority.  But for those of you who are unaware, we had to close our doors a few months ago due to property redevelopment.  It was a wonderful 24 years!  I miss my staff and all of the loyal customers we had.

Not having the restaurant has our customers feeling lost and clamoring for those wonderful recipes of ours.  One which has been especially in demand is our Garlic-Parmesan Soup which we sold each year at our Garlic Festival.  So here it is!

Oh BTW, now that I’m back on my blog, look forward to hearing from me on a regular basis.

Ciao e grazie! Frankie

Turkey-Lentil Soup

Turkey-Lentil Soup

Do you still have some leftover turkey in the freezer?  If so, this soup would be a great option for one of these cold December nights.

I wanted to do something a little different with my leftover turkey this year so I added it to a Lentil Soup.  I used a half package of Confetti Lentils, which has a variety of lentil types; but you could use any lentils available.  I also used a blend of spices which gave it a bit of a middle-eastern flavor.  These spices are often used in Sicilian cooking, which has both middle-eastern and North African influences.  This soup is very healthy and yet so delicious!  Recipe link below.
