Simple Summer Side Dish: Mom’s Potato Salad

Farmers Market Bounty

Those of us fortunate enough to have farmers markets or CSA's in our communities are blessed with the accessibility of just-picked produce. There is nothing like cherries just plucked from the tree or lettuce snipped hours before you turn them into a delicious salad.

A Celebration: Ocean, Wine and Women

I'm sure you can search the internet and find a link between health, happiness and friends. Right now, I need to search no further than one foot in front of me. I'm away with some amazing women celebrating one of my oldest and best friend's birthdays.

Zucchini Time!

One of the signs of summer for me is an abundance of zucchini squash. The great thing, outside of the fact that they are so good for you, is that they taste great AND preparation is so simple.

Life-Changing Kitchen

So many of you have heard Domenica's advice, and hopefully just as many of you have implemented some of the hundreds of tips she has provided in this blog within the last year.

Easter Lamb

By Chef Domenica Catelli It’s almost Easter Sunday. Growing up in an Italian American family, we had our Easter meal traditions. There may have been a variety of side dishes depending on the weather or what month Easter fell on in a given year, but there was one entree for certain: lamb. Usually we made [...]

Comfort Food Without the Guilt

By Chef Domenica Catelli It’s freezing and damp here. The sun is trying to poke through, but the rain is winning. On a day when you can stay in by the fire, this weather is fantastic. However, when you have to run errands in it, not so much. I find that my craving for comfort [...]

Top 4 Reasons You Aren’t Cooking

By Chef Domenica Catelli I am no longer surprised by some of the responses I get when I ask people throughout the country why they aren’t cooking more. Studies show that we are watching more cooking-related shows on TV and yet are at an all-time low for the number of minutes, (yes, minutes, not hours), [...]

Blood Oranges

By Chef Domnica Catelli We are in the last ¼ of blood orange season. For those of you unfamiliar with this particular fruit, let me introduce you.

Homemade Chicken Soup Time

By Chef Domenica Catelli Never underestimate the power of homemade chicken soup. From the comforting aromas that fill the kitchen to the soothing taste, there is something about it that is uplifting and comforting at the same time.

An Early Spring

By Chef Domenica Catelli I don’t know what the weather is like where you live, but right now in Northern California where I am based, we are having an unusually warm winter. I have to say that by this time we are usually bogged down with rain and chilly temperatures. But today (and for the [...]

Food & Romance After the 14th

By Chef Domenica Catelli Valentine’s Day has come and gone. For many of us that day is filled with chocolates, flowers, and a dinner out. For others it’s trying to get 40 school Valentine’s cards filled out with our child while managing their sugar meltdown after all the classroom parties. Since food is my thing I try [...]

Addicted to Kale?

By Chef Domenica Catelli A few weeks ago I added a kale salad as an appetizer at my restaurant. It was born from the memory of a salad I had had at Il Buco in New York last year. I was craving kale (yeah, I know that may sound weird but it can happen to [...]

Summer in January

By Chef Domenica Catelli I had the privilege of spending the past three days working with the wonderful team from Better Homes & Gardens magazine on a story they are going to be running, featuring me, in the June issue. Nancy Hopkins, the food editor, gathered the team up at Catelli’s (my restaurant) to bring [...]

The Grocery Rut

By Chef Domenica Catelli Do you walk into the store after a long day at work or with the kids and feel overwhelmed and exhausted? If the answer is yes, you are in the majority. For those of us who actually get excited while in the aisles of mystery produce and products, I have to [...]

Cuties, Clementines, Satsumas, Navels, Cara Caras…aka Orange Citrus!

By Chef Domenica Catelli Winter is upon us. Many of us are enduring freezing temperatures and yet a burst of summer comes to us at the best time via citrus. Nature knows we need our extra Vitamin C during this cold season, so bring on the oranges and tangerines! There are several different varieties that [...]

Homemade Granola

By Chef Domenica Catelli I created this recipe when I was the Executive Chef at Raven’s, located at the Stanford Inn in Mendocino, California. If you have not been to this area of the country, I highly recommend it. The coastline is wild, the town is small and there are some wonderful hidden treasures. Stanford [...]
