This is my mother's recipe for paella. Its not very different from the typical dish just made with a lot of sofrito. One of my favorites!

Eggplant Fritters

These come out crispy on the outside, tender and moist in the inside. Great vegetarian alternative for hamburger meat.

Farfalle Tonno

Time consuming to prepare but worth the effort as its served with spring onions, lemon juice and zest, black olives, tuna, roasted pimientos and basil.

Farfalle with Spring Onions

A little to simple for some but makes a great side dish. Goes really well with milanesas de pollo (chicken).

Fusilli Mozzarella

It's like pizza but with pasta! Served with tomatoes, anchovies, capers, basil and chunks of melted mozzarella cheese.

Rigatoni Italiano

Called "Greek Pasta" at home because of its combination of feta cheese, fresh tomatoes, and basil.

Spaghetti alla Puttanesca

Spaghetti pasta served with black olives, tomatoes and capers but as an uncooked version of the famous Neapolitan dish.

Tortellini Rosa

My favorite recipe that is served with tomato sauce. Tortellini pasta served with tomato and alfredo sauce that has parmesan cheese, basil, garlic and shallots.

Tuscan Linguine Shrimp

Tuscan style linguine pasta cooked with succulent shrimp, garlic, fresh roma tomatoes, lemon juice and basil.

Steak Milanesas

Thin strips of marinated, breaded, marinated steak that are lightly fried.

Marinated Steak

New York Top Sirloin steak served with a home made marinate sauce.

Chicken Milanesas

Chicken breast covered with breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and thyme leaves. This dish is lightly fried, a healthier alternative.

Bell Pepper Chicken

Boneless chicken breast with red bell peppers and garlic cooked with a little white wine.

Chicken Romano

Oven fried Chicken breast prepared with breadcrumbs, pecorino romano cheese and thyme leaves.

Paprika Chicken

Boneless chicken breast baked and covered in paprika and butter.

Garlic Chicken

Chicken breast, garlic, oregano and lots of lemon juice!


A great salad or dip appetizer as a mix of mayonnaise, tuna, anchovies, spring onions and roasted pimientos.

European Salad

No special name for this recipe but an enjoyable salad with the perfect combination of veggies and vinegars.
