Salted Dove Recipe – The Yellow Saffron Recipe

An interesting variation on the sweet favorite.

(It’s fine to assume that whatever recipes you like to follow is your own path to choose — which is the spirit that I post my recipe re-posts and finds from around the internet. I just can’t let a good chance for somebody to find what they’re looking for in food get away, you know; but also, I seriously don’t believe in the fetish of the day being the it and all of a holiday; a holiday is all about meaning and message and commemorating the meaning and message by observing it fully for a day. However, you can take the meaning and message with you all during the year and so also remember the food that was good on it. Taking out peppermint bark in July is something I’ve seen, for instance, but I’m not meaning that per se. But for instance, I put in several Christmas chocolate recipes in for Easter because they were useful. So you know, make the bread, without the dove knowing about it, some other time. Right! Life is just a wonderful mystery even without knowing it sometimes!… I had a gripe about posting too much food. I suppose, I am not honoring posting less food.)

Cavatelli with Peperoni Cruschi and Pecorino

Polenta & Baccalá


This is the kind of authentic Italian recipes I love: few good quality ingredients and simplicity 🙂

It’s a typical recipe of Lucania, an area mostly part of Basilicata region, and the fact I managed to find also the Pecorino of Moliterno made it really authentic 🙂

But the main ingredient is the peperone crusco, a very particular ingredient: it’s a type of sweet pepper typical of that area, which is dried, and to make it crunchy (“crusco“) you have to fry it for very few seconds (5-10 seconds, no more, otherwise it burns and gets bitter) in oil. But in this case I found some sold already “cruschi”.

It can be eaten as a snack, or it can enrich a lot of recipes, simply crumbled or you can make a powder from it.

Then the pasta: usually homemade pasta is used, especially cavatelli or strascinati…

Easy Chicken & Rice Burritos

What a great way to use up leftover Rice and leftover Chicken! Add your favorite salsa and cheese and you have a meal. I had bought a rotisserie chicken and saved one of the breasts.

Bavette Pasta with Pancetta and Pecorino Sardo Cheese

Authentic Italian Recipes from Nonna Box

Like all other countries on earth, Sardinia has had her fair share of problem but it hasn’t had a negative effect on the people at all – they are extremely hospitable and generous to a fault and will invite a stranger into their homes to share a meal at the drop of a hat.

Pasta is a firm favorite wherever you go and given half a chance a plate of pasta with smoked pancetta and pecorino sardo will be on offer.

Pasta is beloved in all of Italy and notwithstanding the differences between the regions, there is always one common denominator, la pasta. Probably the most traditional Sardinian pasta is malloreddus and fregola. This is the Sardinian interpretation of the Roman Pasta alla Carbonara.

Bavette Pasta with Pancetta and Pecorino Sardo Cheese

This pasta recipe is so easy to prepare and very delicious at the same. Try…

Pork Loin on Beetroot Cream Cheese


Pork is something that I have started eating a lot more, ever since I moved to the US for my higher studies. It can be prepared in many ways like barbecue, slow cooking, pan frying and baking. Over the last few years, I have learnt how to cook pork chops, carnitas, pork butt (shoulder), ribs and the pork loin. In the US, especially in Texas, pork is a widely used and popular protein. In this recipe I have used the whole pork loin and coupled it with a beetroot and cream cheese sauce. Recently, I have grown a fondness for Beetroot. As a kid, I wasn’t a big fan of this root vegetable but because of it’s health benefits and that ‘everything on your plate must be eaten’ teaching I grew up with, I had to eat it. The pork loin (boneless) is rubbed with salt, pepper, sumac, minced garlic…

Ayam Suwir (Indonesian Shredded Spicy Chicken)


Another dish that can be eaten warm or cold, is Indonesian shredded spicy chicken. Every weekend I try to make big quantity dishes so that I can have them for a few days, especially now that I don’t have much time to cook during the day. I paired this dish with my Tempe Orek (Indonesian crisp sweet&sour Tempe), and it felt just like home. Because I made it in such a big quantity, feel free to adjust according to your servings. Hope you like this recipe and happy cooking!DSC02174.JPGTotal time: 1-1.5 hour
