Vegetables

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 […]

Pasta Patate #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on March 9, 2014

Some days it feels as if I have pasta pumping through my veins. Must be the Italian in me, as pasta is one of my favorite foods, especially if it’s one of my grandfather’s recipes. Tammi over at Mamma’s Meals is hosting a meatless #SundaySupper this week, so why not bring one of my grandfather’s […]

Five Spice Turkey Endive “Wraps”

by Anne Papina on February 24, 2014

It all began with a knock at the door and the delivery of a beautiful bouquet … of Belgian endive. A bunch of endive, still on the root and adorned with a red ribbon, is certainly a sight to behold, especially if you’re a foodie. This is how the California Endive Farms shows its appreciation […]

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.

Falafel with Israeli Salad #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on November 3, 2013

Here in San Francisco, the quest to find the best falafel seems never ending. I should know, I’ve been sampling them all over town for as long as I can remember. The one place that had it right, Just Like Home, disappeared eons ago. Meanwhile a parade of places serving dried-up hockey pucks has taken […]

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 […]

Susan over at The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting a crunch-fest, and below you’ll find dozens of […]

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 […]

Stuffed Heirloom Tomatoes #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on July 29, 2013

One of my favorite weekend rituals is hitting the local farmers’ market, and San Francisco has no shortage, with one in nearly every neighborhood. This weekend #SundaySupper is all about farmers’ markets and enjoying the local bounty–T.R. over at Nobody Likes Crumbley Cookies is hosting. Of course, the farmers’ market is the best place to […]
