Welcome Lori! I thank you for your interest in the recipe. You can find the recipe at
I will have my husband post it in the next couple of days. There are many recipes there you might find enjoyable. Feel free to send an email with a recipe of yours and if you are able to, add a picture of your dish and we will post it at the site. By the way, I see you holding a little kitty. We love cats. I had six at one time. We are down to one now.

Welcome to our cooking network blog, Lori. It's a free-for-all but lots of good food ideas. We'd like to hear yours, too. Send them to us, upload videos, photos, etc.

All The News That Fits, We Print

BTW, pardon me if I'm in gross error, but that looks like a little piglet, not a cat.

And we love grandparents here. I are one :-)

Sorry for the sight error! It did look like a cat at first, but now that I stand corrected. Its a cute little "Babe"! Adorable!

Just sent the recipe to hubby. He will post tonight. I hope this works for you. Remember, this was totally improv for me, and it turned out really good. I hope to be the hit of your dinner and not the demise of it. Good luck!

Given that Debbie is a wine lover I am surprised she didn't see a pink elephant instead of a cat. Anyway, welcome aboard.

It's my husband's favourite photo of me (so far) and it is a piglet! Not the one we bought to barbecue, but a cute little sucker anyhow - until he peed on me! Thanks for posting the recipe, my son said it was his favourite last time I made it, but wanted to see if you did anything different.

I'm just about to go shopping for ingredients, has the florentine recipe been posted, and how do I find it?

Well, I did an improv of my own because it didn't get to the site in time. I used chopped spinach, finely diced onions (which I would saute first next time because they had a crunch to them that I didn't care for), 2 eggs and some grated friulano cheese as the filling. Then I rolled them and after they were almost cooked, I placed them in another pan and back in the oven, then made a sauce of butter, followed by flour to make a roux, then white wine, chinese five spice grated in, and chicken broth until good consistency, it was delicious. Again the only thing I would change is carmelizing the onions first. Give it a try, I was very pleasantly surprised with the grated 5-spice adding a touch of flavour to the sauce (very little as it's pretty strong). TTFN and Happy Holidays to you all!
