I am married to a wonderful husband and am a mom of 4 beautiful kids.
I love to cook, I mostly cook a lot of what my mom taught me.
It is a bit hard for me to write her recipes with measurements, because she never used to measure the ingredients, everything she used to cook was by eye and that's the way she taught me. So now that I want to post her recipes, when I cook I try to measure them and then taste it to see if it will taste just like it, and so far I have succeeded to make it taste the same as hers.
I have a website and a blog
I also have a fan page on facebook
My mom's baked ziti.
My mom used to cook pastina for us kids a lot, she had four kids and she always made sure that we always had some kind of protein in us. So the eggs of course was one of them, She even used to make it without the eggs when we used to have the flu. Us kids loved it. She also used to make it with little tiny meatballs. She used to make the pastina for my kids when they were toddlers and they loved it now they ask me a lot to make it for them.
Mom used to make this pasta on special days, like on Holidays and a lot of Sundays. It was a big treat for us. It's a lot of work because of all the ingredients that you have to prepare and layer but it's well worth it.
This is my mom's sauce that she used to make for the pasta.
This was one of mom's dinner tradition, she would make spaghetti with sauce and then the roasted meat to go with it. Now I do this for my family. My husband looks forward to it when I cook this.
This is one of my husband's favorite and his family too. When I first married my Irish husband he liked everything plain like the corned beef, roast beef, chicken soup. One day I decided to spice them all. Now they are his favorite meals. No more plain cooking.
This is one of my family’s holiday favorite. I make this pie recipe for Thanksgiving, Christmas and of course Easter. When I make it my kids can’t wait till after dinner so they can have a piece of their favorite pie.
(A scipuddata is a sicilian name for this recipe, it kind of means like mixed onions). This is a recipe that my mom used to make for us, she would make it for a quick lunch or a snack and of course sometimes for dinner too when we were on a budget. We didn't mind it because we loved it. I still love it. Mom would serve it with italian bread, I would make open face sandwiches. I even used english muffins and it is just as good. I recently used this recipe as an appetizer with italian bread cut into bite sizes and topped with the egg mixture.
