I’m back! We have been so busy in the month of May buying a house, packing up our condo and moving. It is a wonderful move…even closer to my parents, back to the town I grew up in, and the home has my dream kitchen!
What is it about an Italian woman in the kitchen? Have you ever stood next to one as they put a little bit of
this and a dash of that into a pot? They are so passionate about their food and so quick with their hands. It really is a true joy to witness in the kitchen.
Easter is right around the corner so I just had to share a family favorite recipe for Pineapple Sauce. This sauce is so easy to make and is perfect to smother over Easter ham. Plus, you know how ham can get cold pretty quickly? Well this recipe is served hot so it just warms your ham right back up.
Last year, Daddy had a bumper crop of tomatoes. It was also his first year growing Roma and San Marzano tomatoes. He has always grown loads of tomatoes but usually just the beefsteaks…you know, the ones that are great for eating fresh but make a very runny sauce. Well I was finally able to get him to grow paste tomatoes this year he is planning on growing even more! Thankfully tomatoes freeze very well (see my previous post here). And frozen tomatoes make amazing Marinara Sauce!
Tonight I was getting ready to make dinner when I realized I had no rolls. Dinner in our house just needs bread of some sort (I love bread and could eat it with every meal!). Thank goodness for my mom's Easy Cornbread recipe! I just love this recipe. I always have the ingredients on hand, it takes literally 5 minutes to mix together, I can make it into muffins, in a 9″ pan or a cast iron skillet. It truly is an amazing recipe.
