Jalapeno Corn Fritters

I am quite a fan of corn fritters. They herald the summer with their sunny color. They are easy to make and always a winner at BBQs. The good news is that you do not need to wait for the summer season to have them. When using canned corn, run them briefly under water and drain. Frozen corn needs only to be thawed.

Zucchini, Mozzarella, Red Pepper and Anchovies Bake

Parmigiana di Zucchini, Mozzarella e Acciughe, a dish which has been around since Roman times. Because of their long shelf life, anchovies were used then as today to flavor dishes. No wonder, anchovies are still the “little secret” in many Mediterranean dishes. Please use good quality anchovies, not the dismal canned ones you find in many US supermarkets.
