I have not given up on Mediterranean cooking, in fact, I thought I would give it another go. Not Paella of course or Spanish food, but I moved on to Italian, and man was it a hit! I'm not a newbie to making Italian food, but I thought I would try something new that was not in my repertoire and I think I will be making it again. I made Giada De Laurentis' Pork Chop with Fennel and Caper Sauce.

Last night I tried making Paella (a Spanish dish) for the first and last time ever. Needless to say it was a big flop, and I will be leaving it to the pros for the making. Unfortunately I got busy talking with my good friend Jenn who came over for dinner and I wasn't paying attention and the bottom turned completely black! I burned dinner and this is not common practice for me and I was filled with disappointment. To top it off, the rice was not finished cooking and no one likes crunchy rice. Everyone politely ate the dinner, but the leftovers were thrown out, which was a shame that it was not so good, because the flavor was delish. If you are brave and decide to try it out, or Mediterranean cooking is your forte then be my guest. The recipe was from Tyler Florence, his Ultimate Paella!
