Yes, this pumpkin looks a little scary. Fact is, he’s been roasted whole. I started making “Dinner in a Pumpkin” many years ago when my kids were tiny.  Then it became a tradition.  My kids think this is what MUST be done before they head out trick or treating.  It has become a tradition.  I […]

I view pasta a bit differently after visiting Italy. The pasta itself has a better flavor, and is never gummy and overcooked.

I like to take it easy on Sundays when I can.  It doesn’t always work out that way, but armed with my trusty crock pot I can often pull it off.  There is just something amazing about coming home from church and smelling the delicious aroma of dinner nearly done. Roast and potatoes are the […]

I have tried many,many meatball recipes.  Porcupine meatballs, Swedish meatballs, and a plethora or Italian meatballs.  I have finally found I recipe that works for me every time, using ingredients I nearly always have on hand. Meatballs are so versatile.  They can be used in sandwiches, with pasta, in Italian wedding soup, as appetizers–really, the […]
