No Sugar Italian Sweet Ricotta Pie

No Sugar Italian Sweet Ricotta Pie

Creamy sweet ricotta pie always has a place in an Italian Easter Sunday feast. This dish is super delicious at breakfast, lunch or for dessert for any time of year! No crust, no sugar, very few carbs and pineapple vanilla is just the best flavor profile!
Baked Eggplant Parm

Baked Eggplant Parm

The slices of eggplant are roasted to layer with cheese and marinara sauce for a bake while the meat is on the grill.
Pan Seared Lamb Chop Dinner for 2

Pan Seared Lamb Chop Dinner for 2

I cannot think of a nicer Easter Dinner for two or four. This is a 30 minute meal that is an excellent choice for a holiday or special occasion meal. This plate of food could be served in a very fancy pants restaurant! The cauliflower is out of this world.
Meatball Parm Soup

Meatball Parm Soup

I traveled to Salt Lake City for a meeting and had some soup from Caputo's Italian Deli that was so delicious that I had to recreate it at home.

Minestrone Soup

Minestrone Soup

IF I ate this every day for a month I bet I'd lose 20 pounds. There is nothing in that pot that was responsible for my being 300 pounds. So many of you are afraid of vegetables and we would like to help you to not fear them. Some of you BM just once a week and believe it is normal. PROBLEM: No vegetables.

Zucchini Soup

When you try this super easy and delicious soup, you'll never be happy with canned tomato soup again! Give this one a try - it's a keeper!

Grandma's Chicken Soup

Grandma's Chicken Soup

If you are my age you probably recall a magical soup that warded off colds and made you feel warm from your head to your toes. Not sure if it was the delicious soup or the love that also went into that pot. Let's not lose this heritage recipe - teach your children that old fashioned chicken soup heals what ails you. It is super simple and uses just 5 ingredients.

Aunt Gail's Italian Sausage & Apple Lower Carb Stuffing

Aunt Gail's Italian Sausage & Apple Lower Carb Stuffing

The best stuffing you will ever eat. Excellent combination of flavors and textures that is lower in carbs as well. If I am going to choose ONE carb to eat at a holiday meal this is the one that is pouch worthy.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce

Watch your sauce change from bright red to the beautiful red orange in my photo as it slowly simmers. It is Italian magic!
Italian Sub in a Tub... be a Goomba!

Italian Sub in a Tub... be a Goomba!

There is nothing quite like the unmistakable flavor profile of The Italian Sub. Put this one in a Tub! Who needs bread when the insides taste this good.
Manicotti, made with tender egg crepes called Crespelle

Manicotti, made with tender egg crepes called Crespelle

Being Italian has always meant pasta, but since my surgery, I do not eat macaroni. Hard line. I grab a meatball or have sauce over ricotta with lots of parmesan cheese. Once in a while I do make a pan of Manicotti but I use very thin eggy crepes called crespelle instead of pasta. They are easy to make and really delicious.
