This is a recipe that Mom's notes say comes from the late 80's. I tried it last night--and it is pretty darn yummy! The veggies make it very colorful and the hot sausage adds the spice. Linguini Diavolo 1/3 cup olive oil 1 medium red onion, julienned 1 red pepper, cored, seeded and… MORE

Mardi Gras is coming in a few weeks--and I happened upon another recipe clipping from my Mom appropriate for the season. This one says it comes from a restaurant called "Tramps" that used to be in downtown Pittsburgh. One note--a few weeks ago, I happened to pick up (by… MORE

I have always loved mushrooms. Mom used to fix them with steak, and I used to put them on pizza. I found a recipe in my Food Magazine today that I think sounds really good--and I don't want to misplace it--so what a better place to put than in the blog? Tis recipe was developed by Courtney… MORE

But OMG it is so-o-o. I go through these bouts of being a vegetarian. When straight out of grad school, I couldn't afford much meat and did quite well on a meatless diet. Now I am married--and my husband is definitely a carnivore--but every once in a while, I can convince him to try a… MORE

About Me
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking. I love Italian food--but I make all kinds/types of recipes--whatever appeals to me this week.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cookies, fudge and cheese spread at Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
one tragedy happened in 8th grade home-ec--obviously, it traumatized me! Mrs. D'Amato had us making french toast--simple enough, eh? Well, there were five of us in the group. I had table setting duty that week. We were all supposed to help the main cook--Becky T. Well, we were more interested in talking than watching what we were doing. Someone handed Becky the sugar and she put all of it into the eggs and milk. We couldn't understand why our "batter" was so think--until we realized that the recipe called for 2 T sugar--not the two cups Beck was handed! We had "wonderful" carmelized french toast--or at least, we told Mrs. D'Amato how terrific it was--as we choked down the super sweet breakfast!
