Introducing New Contributors to Culinary Covers!

I’m back.  It’s been ages, I know… but I wrote a cookbook and life got crazy and I had to put this little love of mine on hold.  But now we’re back, we’re rolling, we have a brand-new easy-to-navigate design, and Culinary Covers is going to be better than ever.  Here’s why:

I have a wonderful team that will be contributing posts to Culinary Covers- sharing their favorite cover recipes and their honest opinions about those recipes too!  They all come from blogs with totally different backgrounds, and they all have varied personalities and talents.  I can’t wait for you to get to know them.  They are all super-excited to join the Culinary Covers team, so let me introduce them to you!

Be sure to SUBSCRIBE for updates (which will be twice a week, usually on Mondays and Thursdays).  You can subscribe via email or through RSS Feed.  Join the fun!

    I am so excited you are starting this up again. I recently subscribed to FIVE different cooking magazines in addition to the several I already receive. I’m always wondering if you will cover those recipes.

    So last night, I grabbed the bag of frozen Great Value Cheese Tortellini and threw it in a pot of boiling water. The tortellini only take about 5 minutes or so to cook depending on how high you have the water boiling. I turn the boil down a bit so the pasta does not fall apart, so 7 minutes for me. While the pasta was cooking, I put together a quick salad of lettuce, tomato and olives. By keeping salad staples in the fridge, I have items on hand to put a simple salad together that is both healthy and tasty. Some of my staples include lettuce, tomatoes, olives, cucumber, hard boiled eggs, various beans and crumbly cheeses such as feta. This way a salad is always at my fingertips. For a quick sauce, you can easily open a jar of Classico and heat it up. I wasn’t in the mood for a tomato based pasta sauce so I heated up olive oil in a small frying pan and added a big clove of chopped garlic, some oregano, parsley, crushed red pepper and capers. I gave it a pinch of salt and a big pinch of pepper to finish it off. Once the pasta was cooked, I added the olive oil mix to the pasta just enough to coat it. I like to taste the flavor of the food, not a bunch of excess sauce.
