Macaroni and Cheese Donuts

Take a cheese! When my son was 3 yrs old he picked up his Mom Mom's camera and said "take a cheese". Lol! Evidently we used the old 'Say cheese' photo-op moments often.

Spinach & Ricotta Stuffed Shells

My first attempt making spinach ricotta filling 20 years ago wasn't so great. It didn't taste like feet but the flavor was definitely off. My family (troopers for eating it) had a good attitude. I was debating between stuffed shells vs manicotti. The stuffed shells were great & the creamy ricotta filling was on point!… Continue reading Spinach & Ricotta Stuffed Shells

Flatbread pizza is one of my favorites! It's not your regular pizza, which I love until I step on the scale the next day. Flatbread is lighter plus making it at home allows you to add any toppings your heart desires. Inspired by my Mom, who used to love this combination! Green peppers, red onion,… Continue reading Flatbread Pizza

Our family and friends used to… Continue reading Chocolate Mousse

Spaghetti and Meatballs

A classic dinner, that many of us love!  Do you call it red sauce or gravy? Twirl or cut your pasta? As a teenager, I was invited to my boyfriend's Nana's home for dinner. We were all seated at the table and I began to cut the spaghetti with my fork & knife, Nana was… Continue reading Spaghetti and Meatballs
