These Simple “Italian” Cookies were my mom’s favorite when she was a kid. I absolutely LOVE 💗 that these are also my kid’s favorites! How sweet is that? These may not be “Italian” at all, but my mom named them. 🤣 According to her, everything is Italian!
This Make Ahead Holiday Eggnog is creamy, delicious and sweet! You literally throw the ingredients in the blender and store in the fridge until ready to serve. It makes 3 quarts and is perfect to bring to someone’s house for the holidays. It can be served at a Christmas tree decorating get together, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and even New Year’s Eve. This is one of those recipes you should be filing away…
My sweet Grandma used to make loads of these apple pies around the holidays. So does my Aunt June. My mom and I decided to make a bunch this year. With a few calls to my Aunt June and my mom’s memory of her mom making these, I think we got these exact. This apple pie is simple and perfect in every way. We have several in the freezer for Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. I can’t wait to dig in…
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The weather in Florida has finally cooled down. We can keep the windows and doors open so the fresh air flows through the house. Once we start cooking, the familiar smells waft through the air. There really is so much to be thankful for.
I regularly make Whole Wheat Banana Muffins. They are healthy and delicious. We eat them for breakfast and can easily pack them in the lunchbox for school. But when the season of fall arrives I like to switch them up a bit and make Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins. We all love them just as much as the banana muffins and it gives us all the feelings of fall.
I have been waiting to get my hands on my mom’s old cookbook. It was in storage for a couple of years while they got settled here in Florida. Now that I have it, I may not give it back.
The school year is definitely going to be different this year. Are they going or not? Online? Who knows! I think I have one going and one online. But with that being said I’m going to need to have some healthy breakfast options available.
Gather the ingredients and assemble…
I dream about being in an ice cream shop back in the 50’s wearing a Pink Ladies Jacket and dancing the jitterbug.
A perfect Easter meal for me would start with an appetizer of Stuffed Mushrooms and an Italian Salad. The main course would be Lasagna Rolls. Of course ending with Grandma’s Ricotta Pie.
