Here is a baked tortellini dish, full of cheesy goodness and the brightness of tomatoes. Continue reading

Massachusetts Fried Clams

image_pdfimage_print

The next state on the list, Massachusetts. There are so many iconic foods from the east coast and many of them cross over from state to state. Since I have not had the pleasure of visiting this part of our country, my recipes are my take on the flavors I read about and what people who have enjoyed them tell me. And there are some that have traveled across the country for all of us to enjoy – like Boston Cream pie and Boston Baked beans. And Necco candies! I loved those when I was a kid!!

Today’s recipe is fried clams. They say this tasty dish was invented 100 years ago in Essex, MA. by Lawrence Woodman – and they have spread across New England (and elsewhere) ever since.

So what makes fried clams so good? Continue reading

National Pizza Day

image_pdfimage_print

Tomorrow is National Pizza Day!! Yes, there is a day that celebrates that deliciously versatile food we all love. Did you know the Romans were the first to make these flat breads with toppings? They layered bread and sauce and herbs on the top of bread. But the delicious slices as we know them were created in Naples, Italy in the 1700s. They used a flat bread and covered it with basil, garlic and cheese – the tomatoes came later!! In the 1800s Italian immigrants brought it to the U.S. and today it’s one of the most popular foods in the country!

In celebration of National Pizza day, many pizza places are giving huge discounts – and some even free pies! Or,  you can sit at home by a warm fire and cook up your own. Here are some ideas for you to build your day around pizza! Continue reading

Connecticut Steamed Cheese Burgers

image_pdfimage_print

Steamed cheeseburger? Yep. Ted’s restaurant has been serving them since 1959, although some say Jack’s Lunch in Middletown invented it. But at Ted’s, special steam racks were made. While the burger steams, the fats drip out and the meat fills up with steam so it’s still really moist. Then, at Ted’s, the drop 2 full ounces of cheddar and steams it again. It’s served up with all the condiments and some fresh cooked fries.

Sound good? I think so, but it’s one of those things that you either really like it or you really don’t. Give it a try and let me know which side of the steamer you’re on! Continue reading
