Nope, I don’t have any Chocablock Cookies for you today. And, I don’t have any steamed puddings either. I’m really sorry about that, but life has kind of smacked me in the head this past week and I just never found the time to make them.  My work schedule has been kind of crazy and Mr. SGCC has been out of town A LOT, so I’ve been pulling double duty both at home and at the office.  Plus, I’ve got a brand new project over here that is taking up a ton of my time and attention!  Allow me to introduce you all to our new little addition.

The Perfect Roasted Chicken

Sunday, April 18, 201043 Comments

Though I’ve never had the pleasure of visiting any of his restaurants, Thomas Keller certainly needs no introduction to me.  I’ve been hearing about and reading about his genius in the kitchen for years.  His multi-award winning, three Michelin star rated flagship restaurant, The French Laundry, is legendary. …

The Columbia 1905 Salad

Thursday, April 15, 201040 Comments

What could I possibly say about the iconic Columbia Restaurant that hasn’t been said before?  From its humble Ybor City beginnings in 1905 as a small corner sandwich shop to its current status as Florida’s oldest restaurant and the largest Spanish restaurant in the world, the Columbia has …

TWD: Swedish Visiting Cake

Tuesday, April 13, 201025 Comments

Have I ever told you that this Swedish Visiting Cake is one of my favorite cakes of all time?  If not, then consider yourselves told.  It was the first recipe I ever tried from Dorie’s Baking: From My Home To Yours way back before the days of TWD, or …

Moros y Cristianos

A few days ago, I shared my secrets to making the perfect (to me) Cuban sandwich, one of which was a succulent and juicy, marinated roast pork or lechon asado.  But, man (or woman) cannot live by Cuban sandwiches alone.  No, no, no!  One also needs a few …

Lechon Asado and The Perfect Cuban

Thursday, April 8, 201034 Comments

I am of the firm belief that one cannot live in South Florida for any length of time without developing an appreciation of Cuban food.  Seriously. You just can’t. The distinctive Latin flavor of Cuban culture is woven like a ribbon through our cuisine.  It makes perfect sense, …

Orange Tiramisu

Tuesday, April 6, 201023 Comments

After I whined and carried on about the Tiramisu recipe in the February Daring Bakers challenge, I got several requests for my tried and true, old standby tiramisu recipe.  When Easter rolled around, I decided to make it and share it with you.  There was one problem, though.  …

Alleluia!

Sunday, April 4, 201024 Comments

At daybreak on the first day of the week
the women who had come from Galilee with Jesus
took the spices they had prepared
and went to the tomb.
They found the stone rolled away from the tomb;
but when they entered,
they did not find the …

Chicken with Peanut Curry Sauce (and a Little Humble Pie)

Thursday, April 1, 201042 Comments

There’s a lot of Sandra Lee bashing that goes on in the “Foodie” world.  Come on, admit it.  We’ve all snickered at her cute little outfits that she matches to her kitchen decor in every episode. We’ve giggled at her seemingly unnatural preoccupation with fancy, fruity cocktails. We’ve chortled …

Hello and welcome to SGCC! I’m Susan, a professional writer, food columnist, recipe developer, wife, mother, daughter and sister, who used to be a lawyer in a previous life. My love of food comes from a long line of wonderful and creative Italian home cooks who didn’t always have a lot, but knew how to make a lot out of what they had. I hope that you enjoy yourself while you’re here, and visit often! read more >>
