• Neopolitan Eggplant Parmigiana

    Today I was given a few eggplants from a friend’s garden… yum! I was so excited to use them to make my favorite eggplant recipe, Neopolitan Eggplant Parmigiana. I first discovered this recipe in a cookbook from Bibba Caggiano. The difference of this eggplant is that you are not going to be breading each piece […]

  • Italian Easter Bread

      Growing up in our house, Easter was always something we looked forward to, but NOT because of the Easter bunny. We knew that my mom was going to be baking Italian Easter bread, also known as Casatiello. We didn’t just look forward to this event, we craved it and so did all of our […]

  • Zucchini Muffins

    I love Saturdays for many reasons but mostly because the local farmer’s market in town offers up some fantastic fruits and vegetables.  On a recent trip, I think I slightly overdid it at the zucchini table.  My infant daughter had just been given the green light from her pediatrician to start fruits and veggies and […]
