Rustic Pie

This Rustic Pie comes from Mama Coppola’s recipe book and is a delightful addition to any weekend brunch or holiday celebration.

Go Analog: A Digital Detox in Belize

After months of winter hibernation, we’re craving time in the great outdoors (and away from our screens). Why not unplug on a Central America digital detox vacation with some mindful, “face to face time.”

Fast Ginger Meatballs

It’s always nice to have an easy dish in your repertoire that can be served either as a quick meal or as an impressive appetizer to bring to a party.

Lentils Provencal

Don’t let the name fool you – this is not a healthy dish. It is, however, what I would classify as healthy-ish, as in it does use all fresh and whole ingredients. But alas the pound of bacon make it less than truly healthy in my book.

Eggplant Parmesan

Talk about comfort food. This layered Eggplant Parmesan is perfect for feeding a lot of your favorite people or making for a Sunday dinner and having leftovers all week! It’s extremely easy to make and a fun project for two people in the kitchen.

Tortilla Española

Tortilla Española is one of my favorite foods. Period. Not to be confused with a tortilla – it’s an egg dish full of olive oil, potatoes and onions. It’s easy, filling and is a complete crowd pleaser at every meal – breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Peanut Stew

Rainy season can sometimes really drive you crazy. Dark, dreary days followed by long dark evenings – it gets monotonous after a while. For me, it’s important to be able to change it up a little bit for dinners, always, but especially when the weather gets the best of me.

Manhattan Clam Chowder

What’s funny about Manhattan Clam Chowder is that it’s origins are actually from Rhode Island, a very easily arguable point in New England.

Tuesday Night Lamb Tacos

Some weeks are full of things to do, people to see and places to go. Others are a little bit more low key and potentially in need of a midweek pick me up. That’s where these lamb tacos come in.

#WatchAndWine with Bellevue… and Win!

We’re always on the lookout for classic pairings and for us it doesn’t get much better than amazing content and great wine.

Roast Pork Pasta

I was recently back in my home town of Philadelphia. It’s a great city, full of amazing history, architecture, people (we’re not as mean as they say we are) and food. The food in the city of Philadelphia is absolutely outstanding – from our street food to fine dining, we’ve got something for everyone. I will say that the category that Philadelphia potentially does better than any other city is the sandwich.

Survival Guide to Sundance: Screens, Slopes & Wine

This month, the 10-day celebrity-studded, independent Sundance Film Festival (Jan 18-28) commences in Park City, Utah. A magical spot for movie fans and adventure lovers alike, below is our essential checklist for this winter cinematic playground featuring Francis Ford Coppola Winery wines.

New Year Salads

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season full of good company, good food, good wine, and of course, plenty of adventures. To compensate for some of the overindulgence we all engage in over the festivities of the season, I thought I might bring to you today some salads (well, salad-like foods) that incorporate ingredients said to bring luck in the New Year.

8 Cozy Retreats For Winter From California to Vermont

With winter’s chilly days ahead—it’s time for skiing, snowboarding and brisk hikes followed by toasty fires (with marshmallows), hearty cuisine and big bathtubs.

Delicious Holiday Desserts

There’s no better time of the year to indulge in delicious desserts than the holidays. It’s also the best time of year to experiment with things that seem too tough for just a normal dessert.

Homemade Holiday Gifts

Sometimes the holiday season feels overwhelming in the best way possible. Merry and bright and full of parties and presents and families. It also feels like there is always a need to bring something to someone or somewhere

Easy Holiday Appetizers

It’s that time of year again. The most wonderful time of year! And with the most wonderful time of year comes the most wonderful amount of parties, entertaining and noshing.

Holiday Latkes

One of my most favorite holiday foods are latkes. Latkes are potato pancakes that we eat over Hanukkah and go with just about anything else on the dinner table.

“Julie & Julia”… and Grandma Betty

Several years ago, I went out on a “Girl’s Night” with my 93-year-old grandmother, Betty. It was a simple plan. I’d pick her up, take her out for an early dinner, and then we’d catch the 7 p.m. showing of the movie, “Julie & Julia. 

Post-Shopping Party of One.

It’s a busy time of year, but you still need fast-paced entertainment -- and quick delicious bites and sips.

Pumpkin Risotto

Risotto is one of those dishes that takes a little bit of elbow grease but is in fact insanely easy. It’s also a true crowd-pleaser and a guest-impresser!

Home Chef

I think that we can all agree that sometimes life gets crazy and even finding the time to put dinner on the table feels overwhelming. You know the feeling - after a long day at work, hours in traffic and a half-hearted attempt at “sweating it out” at the gym, the last thing you want to worry about is figuring out what to eat.

Za’atar Chicken Dinner

Some nights call for takeout and some nights call for a little something special. With the season change comes the daylight change. Sometimes on a chilly, dark Tuesday night, it’s nice to make something that’s warm and luscious, yet herbaceous and bright all at once. This chicken is spatchcocked, or de-backboned, for a quick cook.

A Pumpkin Soup to Fall For

With no empirical evidence to back up my theory, I’d say that fall is the most beloved of all seasons. It’s magical briskness has a way of charming even the most prudent cold weather hater – it’s certainly the most romantic of the seasons.

An Everyday Leg of Lamb

I think that when a lot of people think of lamb, they think of celebrations, the holidays, etc. It is my opinion that lamb shouldn’t be something reserved for a special occasion. It is a marvelous meat with a grassy flavor.
