Struffoli (honey balls)

Struffoli (honey balls) by Joseph Gargiulo

A Christmas favorite in Italian households. When I was growing up in my home there was always a bowl of these available to munch on with milk or, as I got older, with coffee. They are honey glazed pastry balls which are great for a festive snacking treat.

Five Star Lasagna

Five Star Lasagna by Chef Doug

This took much exhaustive research to find. My goal was to find the recipe for the Old Spaghetti Factory lasagna. This may or may not be the exact recipe, but it is very close. The Old Spaghetti Factory lasagna is the best lasagna I've personally ever tasted. It elicits an almost inaudible moan with every bite. This takes a 9x13…

This is an easy recipe that you can prepare in advance and bake right before dinner. It works well in a Nuwave, and it's truly delicious, if not exactly low fat. Make sure to give it a squeeze of fresh lemon just before serving!

Olive tapenade

Olive tapenade by Shawnna and Davide Busetti

Olive Tapenade is a staple at my house. It is delicious to pull out as an impromptu happy hour snack, and it's always great to set out when company is coming. The olive tapenade keeps well in the refrigerator for at least a week, but rarely lasts that long at my house. I serve the tapenade in a small bowl, then on the side to scoop it…

Minestrone Romagna Style

Minestrone Romagna Style by John Spottiswood

This is the way minestrone is made in Romagna. It's not a lot of prep time, but you simmer the soup for a long time until all of the vegetable flavors mellow into one mild but delicious soup. The subtle flavors of this soup are even more delicious the next day, so it is a good dish to prepare in advance of guests arriving for a…
