It got down into the 40’s here last weekend.  THE 40’s!  In NOVEMBER!  In FLORIDA!  That almost never happens.  Don’t tell anyone, but I might have even turned the heat on in the house for a second or two.  Apparently, I’m turning into a weather wimp.  With each passing year my bones seem to chill a bit quicker as I get more sensitive to the cold.  Don’t judge me.  This will someday happen to  most of you too.

Before the temperature crept back up into the 70’s, I took advantage of the situation and also did some cool weather cooking.  Being Thanksgiving weekend, I made the requisite turkey barley soup.  I baked a few things too.  And, I made Sausage and Cheese Stuffed Shells, because nothing says warm and cozy more than meaty and cheesy baked pasta.

Remember that recipe for homemade Ricotta I told you about a few months back?  Pretty amazing stuff, huh?  And, you can use it in so many different dishes too!  I know that I already gave you some suggestions in my original post, but I want to share one more ricotta recipe with you, because a) It’s awesome; b) It’s one of my family’s favorites; and c) It’s awesome.  Did I say awesome twice?  Well, I meant it.  These stuffed shells really are…well…awesome.  read more >>

I’ll let you in on a little secret.  Even though I grew up in an Italian family where more than half of my relatives, including my father and grandparents, were actually from Italy, I had never heard of mascarpone until I was an adult and discovered it for myself.  …
