dedicato alla mia mamma
la cuoca della famiglia
is dedicated to my Mamma, who taught me how to cook,
and how to enjoy the not so fancy foods in life. A
very wonderful woman, that I truly loved and miss
Now for a little history behind
these recipes and how they came about.
Grandparents were immigrants from Italy.
They came to Ellis Island, in
search of the great American dream. This was where my
mother was born in Newark, NJ. The recipes were
passed to her from her mother, and then passed to me
from mine. Since I have no children of my own, what
better way to pass on these recipes but on my web
page so everyone can enjoy them, and maybe start
their own tradition with them. So for now, Buon Appetito
All Italians cook
their own way. There are many regions in Italy and all of
them make a recipe a certain way, or may even call a
certain dish by another name. Even Sicilans cook
differently from family to family. My cousin and I argue
all the time as to what ingredients go in certain dishes.
These recipe's are the way my mother made them, your
mother or grandmother probably made them differently.
Each family changes them around to suit there tastes by
changing the ingredients around.
