Thank You

America’s Table has been an expression of my joy in working with food, flowers, and entertaining for the last five years. I’ve loved every minute of it (well, maybe not that time the top came off the blender when I was thinning caramel sauce and blew caramel over everything in a six-foot radius, floor to ceiling). As memorable as it’s been, the time has come for me to turn to other things. It’s been truly uplifting to get to know so many wonderful people through America’s Table. My followers are the salt of the earth. I send you love and sincere wishes for a happy life.

Baked Rigatoni with Pork and Ricotta

Here’s a sumptuous baked pasta dish that will warm you to the bone. No red sauce – just lemon, rosemary, and ricotta in an al dente pasta redolent with the flavor of the most tender pork you’ve ever tasted. I love this meal! Add a green salad and a nice, light red wine and you have the makings of a feast!

Country Hash

Country Hash

Hash is one of those dishes that, when properly prepared, is the ultimate breakfast of champions. Too often it’s a greasy, gamey mess of leftovers that puts people off it forever. But this is not the hash you have may tried and found revolting.

Game Hens with Sage and Rosemary

It’s the time of year when we begin to get cozy at home, staying in to cook seasonal meals and enjoy old favorites. I’ve always liked game hen because they’re so tender, and they take on the flavor of other ingredients so easily. These luscious little hens are plump and bursting with rosemary, sage, three kinds of onions, and the zing of fresh oranges.
