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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Homemade Potato Chips

by Anne Papina on June 28, 2013

If you’re gonna be bad, there’s no point in holding back. That’s my thinking anyway. So when I saw OXO’s hand-held mandoline in my goodie bag from Camp Blogaway, I knew right away I needed to make potato chips. Airy, crispy, salty, honest-to-goodness potato chips. See how I’m getting all drooly at the thought? Yep, […]

Farrotto (Farro Risotto) with Mushroom Medley

by Anne Papina on June 13, 2013

As I mentioned a few posts back, I recently attended Camp Blogaway in Angelus Oaks. What a fun weekend packed with lots of good food, great presentations, and about a 100 bloggers eager to learn. I met so many wonderful folks there–connections that will last a lifetime. I returned with cherished memories, and two bags […]

You’re probably wondering what’s up with all the vegan and gluten-free recipes lately. Well, we’re trying to eat a little healthier around here. Sure, we love a fat, juicy burger just as much as the next person, but the fact is as we get older we need to be a little more mindful about what […]

Cheezy Vegan Chorizo Pasta Bake

by Anne Papina on May 26, 2013

I had intended my Memorial Day post to be about barbecue. Serious barbecue. We’re talking a whole hog. I had all the pictures lined up, but the instructions, which are admittedly a bit involved, didn’t quite come together before I took off for Camp Blogaway.  So, here I am, on the eve before my road […]

Potato and Leek Gratin #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on March 24, 2013

Spring, Daylight Savings Time, Easter–they bring rejuvenation, new beginnings, and an opportunity to bask in the warmth of longer days. We’re not very religious around here, but our family does observe all the major Christian holidays. With Easter being the most important, at least to the devout, we use this holiday to bring family and […]
