Guyabano, goji and acai berries which are high in antioxidants known to combat certain types of cancer. Herbs such as ginger and garlic have anti inflammatory properties that help relieve joint aches and pains. Lagundi, a medicinal plant growing abundantly in the Philippines and around Asia is actually used as a main component of cough medicine and is giving chemical based drugs a run for their money. Very useful information!

Homemade Rice Balls - Arancini Recipe

Arancini, or Italian rice balls, are an appetizer worth your time in the kitchen.  Rice balls are filled with ground beef and fried until golden brown. This is a great recipe for leftover rice.

Watch how to make these Italian rice croquettes in the video below.

Recipe: Penne Alla Norcina - Penne In The Style Of Norcia

Recipe: Penne Alla Norcina - Penne In The Style Of Norcia | Food123 | Scoop.it

There is no chance of finding sausage or other pork products here like those produced in Norcia, which is so synonymous with high quality that butchers throughout Italy call their shops norcinerie. Freshly made sweet Italian pork sausage is a good substitute.

Ingredients

Penne1 medium Spanish onion, sliced very thin1/4 cup olive oil4 sweet pork sausages (1 to 1 1/2 pounds total)1 cup white wine2 cups heavy cream1 tablespoon grated black truffle or 2 tablespoons prepared truffle paste or sauce2 cups grated pecorino cheeseSalt and pepper, to tasteDirections

Boil penne in salted water until a little firmer than al dente and drain.

In a pan large enough to hold all of the cooked pasta, slowly cook the onion in the olive oil over low heat, stirring, for 15 minutes or until the onion is soft, translucent and slightly golden.

Remove the meat from the sausage casings, crumble into small pieces, and add to onion and oil. Turn heat up slightly. Cook, stirring, until meat is almost completely cooked through.

Add white wine, turn up heat to medium and cook until wine boils off.

Add cream and turn heat up to medium-high. Cook down cream for a few minutes, until it starts to thicken. Add cooked penne and combine.

Pour penne and sauce into a bowl. Add grated truffle and toss with 1/4 to 1/2 cup grated pecorino cheese. Check and correct salt and pepper. Serve, providing additional grated pecorino cheese on the side

Christine Szalay-Kudra's curator insight, April 26, 2013 6:46 AM

Deep-pan pizza is the ultimate food if you want something supremely satisfying. Not only do you get your toppings and sauce of choice but you can also enjoy the thick, deep crust. Although thin crusts also have plenty of appeal, especially if you want a really crispy base for your pizza toppings, deep-dish pizza offers something completely different.

 

Deep-pan pizza is not usually topped heavily because the focus is on the bread-like crust, but the thickness of the base does mean it will hold up if you do add plenty of toppings. If you are a thin-crust pizza eater, why not make or buy deep-pan pizza next time for a change, and see how it compares?

All-American Pizza and Homemade Pizza Sauce Recipe | Barbara ... | Food123 | Scoop.it

Christine Szalay-Kudra's curator insight, April 23, 2013 1:55 AM

A great pizza recipe begins with a great crust, and using instant yeast to make it means the dough only needs to rest for 15 minutes rather than hours. The pizza in this recipe is topped with generous amounts of cheese and tomatoes, as well as ingredients like garlic, red pepper flakes and basil. There is so much difference between a homemade pizza like this one and something you order from Domino's or buy frozen from the store.

 

Making your own pizza can be surprisingly quick and easy and most people who have tasted homemade pizza always feel that something is 'lacking' from a store-bought one. You can also get creative and change the dough, the sauce or the toppings when making your own, to ensure the pizza fits perfectly with your palate and your idea of the perfect pizza.

Christine Szalay-Kudra's curator insight, April 11, 2013 8:01 AM

I always enjoy reading about food and drink but this article grabbed my attention for another reason altogether, and it made me very sad. Poor people waiting outside a closed grocery store did not manage to get anything to feed their hungry children. Instead of being distributed, the food (which was perfectly edible) was used as landfill, by the order of SunTrust Bank who owned the grocery store building and served the eviction notice. The poverty rate in the surrounding area is 41% and people are literally starving because they cannot afford to feed themselves or their families.

 

Yet instead of donating the food to those in need it was disposed of. Hundreds of hungry people could have been fed, for no cost whatsoever, yet the bank used the food as landfill. I for one cannot understand some people, and find it very sad that perfectly good food was dumped like that instead of being donated to the needy.

Christine Szalay-Kudra's curator insight, May 5, 2013 6:13 AM

There are lots of angles in the food aid debates, one of which is how long the food takes to get to where it is going. In fact, food can take up to 4 months to reach those in need and many of them die waiting for it to get there. The option to buy locally is not there, which is why a lot of the food is grown in the United States, so that means shipping costs and more.

 

Not only does all this seem wasteful but what about the 1 in 5 American homes using food stamps? How come so many Americans are starving if all this food is being grown locally and then sent to the other side of the planet? So, what do you think? Is the World Food Program inadequate in your opinion, or do you believe everything that can be done to assist is already being done?

I love Italian food but not just the fast food version of it like pizza and calzone. I also love pasta with a nice homemade sauce, as well as Italian style chicken or veal. Italian recipes are nice to make during the week because a lot of them are quick.

 

Put a pot of pasta on to boil and by the time it is al dente you can warm up a can of chopped tomatoes, throw in some torn fresh basil leaves, salt, black pepper and perhaps some olives too. Add some leftover cooked chicken and shrimp and serve with some grated cheese on top. That is just one way to make a fast, simple Italian dinner.
