Sides

I grew up in one of those meat-and-potatoes households and as a child found myself fascinated with the old Hidden Valley Ranch commercials. Could snacking on veggies be that fun?! As you might imagine, greens were hardly in my vocabulary back then, so when my buddy DB over at Crazy Foodie Stunts said he was […]

Italian-American Turkey Dressing #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on November 24, 2013

It seems hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a few days away–are you ready? I’m not! You probably figure I’ve forgotten all about turkey day considering all the Christmas cookies I’ve been baking lately, but nothing could be further from the truth. Once I get Thanksgiving on the brain, all thoughts turn to the […]

Diana’s Sour Cream Potatoes

by Anne Papina on October 27, 2013

With the holidays fast approaching, my thoughts are turning to the comfort foods that grace our family table. The roasted turkey and the family’s “green” dressing are a constant, but beyond that, the years have seen a dizzying parade of sides and desserts. Some hits, some misses–I’m always up for trying something new. Yet, in […]

Ruby Port Cranberry Sauce #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on October 20, 2013

Who says cranberry sauce is just for the holidays? Around here, we love it on turkey sandwiches, so we roast turkey breast all year ’round, just for the sauce! When I saw that the Foodie Stuntman was getting all saucy this week (for #SundaySupper), I knew I wanted to bring this cranberry sauce–instead of water, […]

Penny’s Taco Salad #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on September 29, 2013

Ever notice how some cravings revolve around texture rather than taste? Sometimes I want something creamy, decadent, then other times it’s all about the crunch, which happens to be the theme of this week’s #SundaySupper! Susan over at The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting a crunch-fest, and below you’ll find dozens of […]

Penne with Spicy Pumpkin and Sausage Sauce #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on September 22, 2013

What’s not to love about fall? Thoughts of turning leaves, cool, crisp evenings, and cozy sweaters paint a romantic portrait in my mind. But in my San Francisco reality, much of that won’t pan out yet as the fog finally clears, making way for our Indian Summer. Sure, leaves will turn, eventually, but without all […]

Caprese Tortellini Salad #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on September 1, 2013

Parades, picnics, and barbeques all go hand-in-hand with Labor Day, which for most simply marks the end of summer. There was a time, however, when American workers weren’t afforded the luxury of a day off, and Labor Day honors the contributions and achievements of those who struggled to improve working conditions for everyone. Of course, […]

Italian Stuffed Zucchini

by Anne Papina on August 30, 2013

Since relaunching Webicurean last year, my mother has been asking — “have you posted the stuffed zucchini yet?” I’ve been meaning to, honest, but other recipes keep getting in the way. I’m not sure why, though, given these are one of my favorite family treats. With zucchini so plentiful this time of year, now seemed […]

Martin’s Easy Mexican Rice

by Anne Papina on August 23, 2013

Have you ever made Mexican rice? Let’s be clear. I’m not talking about one of those heavy, gloppy tomato rice concoctions we find all over the place. I’m talking about the authentic stuff. That light, fluffy, orange rice that adorns the plate at your favorite taqueria. I don’t know about you, but this sort of […]
