Friday, April 22, 201110 Comments

I don’t know what is is about Easter time that makes me crave cool, light and fruity desserts.  Maybe it’s because by the time Easter rolls around, our Florida temperatures have already crept up into the eighties.  Or, maybe it’s because they look so pretty and Spring-like in their …

La Tavola della mia Famiglia: Pasta e Lenticchie for a Prosperous New Year

Sunday, January 2, 201127 Comments

When I was a little girl, my grandfather worked as a longshoreman for the New York Port Authority.   For most of his career, he worked the night shift.  This meant that from Monday through Friday, he was rarely ever around at dinner time.  As a result, my Nonna  usually …

Well, here we are again.  Another year gone by and I honestly didn’t see it coming.  Seriously.  Where did the time go?  They say that time flies when you’re having fun.  If that’s true, then 2010 must have been one helluva nonstop party.  Too bad I can’t remember it!

Can you believe it?  Thanksgiving is barely one short, little week away.  How did this happen?  I know that time marches on, but lately it feels like it’s been stampeding by!  I’ve been trying to plan my Thanksgiving menu, and it hasn’t been easy.  My problem isn’t deciding what …

God Bless America was originally written by legendary composer, Irving Berlin in 1918 while serving in the U.S. Army.  At the time, he couldn’t find an appropriate show to use it in, so he set it aside.  It wasn’t until after the rise of Hitler in 1938 …

Who doesn’t love Strawberry Shortcake?

No, not that Strawberry Shortcake. Although, she is awfully cute!
