  6. The potatoes sound delicious. I'm so glad I found your blog. I grew up in a town that was about half Italian and the food I was exposed to at my parents friends homes was usually cooked by the grandmothers who could barely speak English. Living where I do, there is very little good Italian, so hopefully I can learn from you how to make it at home and you can pass it on to me as well.

  13. glad to see you beating and I mean really beating your potatoes, I think it is important to bind the hot meal of potatoes with its starch creating a much better consistency - love the flavors in here, love 'em a whole lot
