farro[SO] yummy!

Since the weather took a turn from warm and summer-like, to a slight bit cooler it seemed fitting to make a hearty, warming meal for dinner…
After raiding my fridge and pantry, it was easy! A nutty farro dish with an Asian flavor base to it! Shredded carrots, diced onions, some minced garlic and ginger, chopped porcini mushrooms and sautéed shrimp all came together with a hint of sesame oil, a few tablespoons of soy sauce and a dash of hoisin…
The dish literally takes no time to prepare, but the incredible depth of flavor would make you think otherwise!

a pre-Fall feast…

Today was a cooler day… almost preparing us for the arrival of fall this coming Saturday!
What better to do than prepare a comforting dish for dinner that would satiate both the stomach and palate.
Chicken sautéed in a mascarpone marsala cream sauce… chunks of chicken breast, diced onion, sliced mushrooms, garlic, marsala wine and mascarpone were some of the delightful supporting actors in this simple, yet satisfying meal!
The sauce was creamy and almost sweet, while the mushrooms offered an earthiness and the chicken, a wholesome and warming element!
Hmmmm… I think Fall meals are in full effect…
