Mom and Grandma



I remember my mom and sometimes grandma who lived was us ( dad's mom) would make this dish and the smell would hit you in the face coming through the door.


Seriously one of the best smells to walk into the house with when I came home from school.


That was truly one of my best memories of her cooking besides meatballs of course.


Mom made homemade sausage all the time and dad had the best of the best vegetable gardens in our yard.


We always had the freshest peppers and even homegrown potatoes, I was one lucky girl.


Back in the 1950's money was pretty tight and this fed a large family inexpensively.


We all loved it and even both my grown sons make it often, a real traditional recipe.

Mom's Way



Through the years mom made the best meals by making sure anything goes into the pan that we had in the refrigerator.


Classic easy recipes that can't be right or wrong.


Back in the depression days, they didn't let anything spoil and anything goes in that pan or pot.

Grandma, Dad's Mom



When Grandma came from Rome, Italy and mom's family from Bari, they cooked different but never ever wasted any food.


Old bread became bread crumbs or croutons or used for bread pudding.


Anything ready to spoil was cooked and made into stews.


Today we have all kinds of recipes that haven't described the changes in the last 100 years.

Italian feasts in Utica, New York



IF you grew up in my home town Utica, New York, then you heard of sausage and peppers at local summer feasts.


We would have the best hoagie sandwich with hard crusted delicious bread stuffed with fried peppers and sausage.


There was something about this being cooked outside that made your mouth water no matter how delicious it was at home, this was a must to eat every year.


All the local church feasts made them fantastic and with love, there weren't any potatoes in that sandwich, but it was fantastic and always etched in my mind.


They still do this to this day, but since I moved away, I now make them at home and reminisce about those childhood years of sausage and peppers.
