This one just writes itself. Now, it is a recall and we take those seriously in Ann Kelly’s Kitchen. But when the recall is on coffee that actually has something in it with “Viagra-like results” you tend to pay attention. And come up with some pretty bad lines. But it’s true for this Japanese coffee. No prescription needed.
A big round of applause here for one of Chik-fil-A’s finest who save a customer from choking. Brings up a good question – do you know how to do that? Might be a good time to “bone up” on the Heimlich [More]

I’ve found Five Fun Finds this month in Ann Kelly’s Kitchen and we start of with one of those “only in Florida” stories. It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s…sausage? Yes, somehow 15 pounds of Italian sausage fell out of the sky and right onto a home right here in Florida! But where did it come from – was it on the menu for their backyard barbeque, or is there a more mysterious answer? Nah! Check out the full story here, and keep an eye on the sky.
A cold beer would have gone so well with a grilled sausage [More]

Some chefs are celebrity chefs. Some own restaurants, and some even have their own wine. Chef Fabio Viviani is all three and a lot more. Add his new book “Fabio’s 30-Minute Italian: Over 100 Fabulous, Quick and Easy Recipes and that’s Italian! Of course, when you grown up in Florence, Italy it may come naturally. But take that passion for food and family and pack it into one book? This works, and it’s an easy way to introduce yourself to what you may have been missing in your own cooking repertoire.
He’s one busy guy, but I was lucky enough [More]

This is a whopper of a recall. Sabret has recalled seven million pounds of their hot does contaminated with what they’re calling extraneous products. We call it pieces of bone and cartilage in those hot dogs with one minor injury to date. Check the full recall notice and get those out out of the house and off the grill. I’ll also bring you back up to speed with some of the other big recalls we’ve had to deal with recently. Summertime and sometimes the dining isn’t easy.

So many ways to celebrate – so much ice cream to sample! Sunday is National Ice Cream Day and with our heat and humidity it’s more than a necessity to find ways to chill out. So get ready for what wonderful little dribble of melting ice cream down the cone and onto your arm!
Now where to find great deals? Start with McDonalds. You’ll need their app for a free soft serve cone, and there’s even a chance to win free ice cream FOR LIFE. That’s my kind of motivation . Here’s even more deals to help you [More]

I usually end each Ann Kelly’s Kitchen blog with a quote, but this is one I want to lead with. It comes from Anne Raver and it really speaks to the mission of the University Area Community Development Corporation and their work with the Harvest Hope Park Community Garden – “Gardens, scholars say, are the first sign of commitment to a community. When people plant corn they are saying, let’s stay here. And by their connection to the land, they are connected to one another.”
Community gardens are growing in popularity and Harvest Hope is a great example. I stopped [More]

Stop. Drop. And Roll. Words that save the life of a Florida chef in his own kitchen. We’ve seen Chef Ralph Pagano on shows like “Iron Chef” and “Hell’s Kitchen.” The south Florida Chef was at his new restaurant in Miami, the Naked Taco. when he was severely burned in a gas explosion in the kitchen. Chef Pagano is in the hospital with third-degree burns and will have surgery to repair those burns. You may have checked out his other restaurants in South Florida like Naked Lunch in Miami and Naked Crab in Fort Lauderdale. Best wishes for a [More]

A healthy diet goes a long way toward good health. But if you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis there’s a new study out you need to know about. Arthritis Care and Research’s new study says to keep fish an important part of your diet. Now how much and what kind is also important, so take a look at the study and see what works for you. Oh, and don’t miss the new about coconut oil. You may agree or disagree, and it’s started a whole lot of conversation.
I love hummus but if you’ve bought this brand you want to ditch [More]

When exactly is the first day of summer? That would be today…like there will be a noticeable difference between today and a week ago here in Florida, right? But along with all the fun and games comes some serious problems when you don’t take care of yourself out in all that heat and humidity. The magic word is hydrate and that’s not with soda, alcohol, etc. Both alcohol and caffeine can actually make us feel hotter. It might surprise you to know that spicy foods not only will make us sweat and that can help cool us off. But [More]

Survey says there are those among us who think chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Seriously. Okay, it’s not a huge percentage but there are 7% that think that’s the real deal. The report came out in the February issue of Food and Wine and it gets even better. Some people aren’t sure where chocolate milk comes from at all. Okay…
I know where mine comes from, and it’s one of my very not-so-guilty pleasures. The Silk Dark Chocolate Almond Milk is my go-to when that chocolate craving hits. But all good things in moderation. I do pay attention to [More]
