I have adapted this classic Easter dessert so you can make it easily in your home in North America with readily available ingredients!
“Amaretti morbidi” are chewy, Italian almond macaroons. This is my rendition of a chewy amaretti cookie surrounded by a short crust.
Cooks that are unfamiliar with eggplant may be intimidated by it, but it is a satisfying vegetable that can make a hearty main course for vegetarians!
It is Easter week and not only does that mean planning family dinners and egg hunts, it means making traditional, Italian Easter bread at my house!
Being Southern Italian, Christmas Eve as a child meant a few things–savory, potato zeppole, a multi-course seafood dinner, Tombola…
There’s something about the smell of dinner in the oven that evokes memories of my childhood and the many family meals my large Italian-Canadian family shared.
I can say that nothing pleases me more than when someone does the cooking for me on Mother’s Day! When my children were little, I often got “Breakfast in Bed”.
In my busy household of 6 the trips to the grocery store are a plenty. With the cost of food steadily rising, I absolutely hate to throw out food.
