Even as spring approaches, sixteen percent of all dinners made in America tonight will be from the frozen food aisle of the supermarket. It’s not completely surprising considering the convenience factor, but why not spring for something with fresh seasonal ingredients instead? Pun (and deliciousness) intended.   Peas are in their absolute prime this time of year….

Last week, Mario hosted an event at Del Posto as a kick-off to the Spring season: Mario’s Italian American Table.   Guests were treated to Mario’s favorite Italian American classics, updated with a modern twist in the style of Del Posto.

The only thing better than one acorn squash recipe this time of year is two acorn squash recipes. Right now I’m making risotto colla zucca along with a stuffed acorn squash for my family. These are my all-time favorite ways to incorporate this winter vegetable into a quick dinner before the vernal equinox hits and…

parsnip frittata_header image

This time of year, when parsnip season is in full swing, I’m constantly asked for Meatless Monday recipes incorporating this vegetable. My parsnip frittata with chives and Pecorino exudes everything that a meatless meal should be. There’s protein packed in the eggs, nutrients from the parsnips and, most importantly, a bold punch of flavor from…

This month my family and I traveled to one of our favorite island escapes, the sweet, little paradise known as St. John. The water sparkles and the sand warms your toes while the cocktails warm your stomach. Better yet is the fresh catch of the day. Tuna, grouper and lobster are just a few…
