People generally enjoy mspia's recipes.
My “Nona” was from the north of Italy and “Lolo” was from Spain.
Lolo used to make pickle fish. You would think that is a kids worst nightmare, but it was fabulous. I would kill for that recipe.
My mother is also a wonderful cook. I grew up eating the most amazing food; her lasagna and Bolognese sauce are out of this world.
There is nothing that I enjoy more than traveling. I love the challenge of a new culture and a foreign language. Of course all my traveling is culinary oriented. Eventually I would love to move to Italy. Italians, in my opinion, have the perfect life style; Hard work in the morning, good food for lunch, nice siesta and out for a “giro” (go for a round) in the afternoons to visit with your friends over a cup of coffee.
My daughter is a great baker; she has a natural talent for it.
We can make the exact same recipe and hers ALWAYS tastes much better.
My favorite products are seasonal, organic and fresh; I stay away from cans and pre-mixed stuff.
I’m a proud member of the Slow Food movement.
