Pizza Rustica (A Sicilian Sausage and Proscuitto Pie)
It is so wonderful to see this very traditional and very diverse recipe shared here. I have taken on the tradition of making this pie every year for Easter with my family. We use different meats than this recipe but this "meat pie" is different with every single family that still makes it. It was known as a "poor man's meal" during the depression. People used whatever they had on hand to make this and it became a very personal recipe. Every recipe/list of ingredients are different therefore, it is TRULY a FAMILY TRADITION when we make it. This Particular version is a wonderful recipe. Myjo's version is the same as my Grandmother made. There is nothing greater than to take a bite and feel like you are right back with family members that have since passed on. It truly is like coming home again. In my Mother's version, we use Italian ham (Ham Cappi), American Ham, Pepperoni and Salami instead of the sausage. As I said, there are many different versions of this pie, but of all that I have tasted, I have never found one that I didn't like. Thank you Myjo for sharing such a tradition with all of us. P.S., the cracked black pepper does make the difference! We use it also.

Sweet Cornbread Cake
Made exactly as recipe stated. This is incredibly delicious, moist and super easy to make. You cannot mess this recipe up. My 6 year old made this with my supervision. This is a great recipe to introduce the love of baking with your little one. The full recipe makes a large amount so it is perfect for brunch or when you'll have a few people over....otherwise do what we do. Enjoy it all week long. Thank you so much for this terrific corn bread cake recipe. Even those that do not like traditional corn bread absolutely devour this one!!

Vodka Sauce
Racquelle, This recipe is absolutely wonderful!!! I made it just the way you instructed. We don't like spicy so I just didn't add the crushed pepper. I am from Italian heritage and it is "tradition" that you let your sauce cook for that's what I did. (about 3 hours for this sauce) The aroma filled my entire house! Unfortunately, this first pot was for a catering job my husband was doing and so we couldn't eat it!! But my 5 year old daughter and I were "tasting" it a lot and she loved it so much she wanted me to fill a bowl with it so she could eat it with a spoon! Needless to say, Today I'm making another batch for us to eat!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It is easy and very tasty. If anyone is having trouble with this recipe, I think cooking it longer will enhance the wonderful flavors! Racqelle, your recipe was a big hit for the party we catered also!
