Januray's Food Network Magazine included this Rigatoni with Sausage and Fennel recipe from Ina Garten. I love pasta and thought we would enjoy this, boy did we ever. Another restaurant worthy recipe from Ina.
This pasta is not a light recipe. High fat items include Italian sausage, heavy cream, half and half and Parmesan cheese. We ate small portions. I made half a recipe and we managed to get five servings. This was delicious and decadent. The recipe is available on Food Network website. I am linking this with I Heart Cooking Clubs theme of the week Italian food.

We didn't know quite what to make of this dessert. The meringues were very crunchy and not able to cut with a knife, it just shattered. And my loose curd did not help the situation. It was sweet and tasty but hard to eat. I don't think this one will make a repeat in my house.
To see what others thought this week head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

Tuesdays with Dorie
Baking Chez Moi
According to Dorie this recipe is from the Normandy region of France. For this cake she suggests using sweet, juicy apples so I went with Jazz apples which are a fusion between a Royal Gala and a Bareburn Apple. My notes for this recipe were moist, delicious, easy and make again. A delightful cake good for breakfast, brunch, snack or dessert. No matter when you eat it you will like it. Enjoy!

This week's featured ingredient at I Heart Cooking Clubs is Greens! Anything green and leafy counts so I decided on this Spinach Salad by Ellie Krieger. My husband is travelling again this week so that means make something he doesn't like mainly butternut squash.

We are down to our final four weeks with Ina Garten at I Heart Cooking Clubs. This first week of March we were tasked with Breakfast Buffet! Cook up any Ina Garten dish you'd like to see at a breakfast buffet.
We had this for breakfast and thought it was plain. I don't know if the nuts would have added more flavor or not. I barely tasted the cinnamon the only spice in the recipe. Once again this recipe has many five star ratings on the Food Network but I would not make this again.
The recipe and video are available on the Food Network. To see what others made head over to I Heart Cooking Cubs.

This week on Tuesdays with Dorie we are making Hamantaschen. I voted for this one to see Dorie's take on this Purim cookie. I learned how to make hamantaschen from Faye Levy's International Jewish Cookbook. Her One, Two, Three Cookie Dough recipe has been the staple in my family. I have varied the fillings but usually do poppyseed raisin.
hamantaschen like a pro. Now I can't get him into the kitchen to cook, teenagers.
