    Got this recipe a few years ago off the internet and I can't remember who wrote it, but wish I could because it has been my go to for Roast Pork loin ever since. Easy and delicious!

    Recipe #463605

    Recently started to try and eat the "Clean Living" way, which is to eat food in it's most natural state, without adding too many ingredients. Not a Raw diet, as you cook your food. I got this recipe from "Clean Living" Magazine. It's delicious and once everything is prepped, takes less than 20 minutes to cook! Delicious! This recipe freezes well.

    Recipe #387409

    This is an easy and delicious way to make Shrimp. You can either cook outside on the grill or in the broiler. The Oregano gives it a mediterranean flavor and I like to serve it with a Greek salad and grilled Asparagus. I normally use Jumbo or Colossal sized Shrimp, but found that most people prefer the large size. You can play around with spices, I have also used just Italian spices or plain old Lemon/Pepper. Enjoy!

    Recipe #378223

    This is a pretty fool proof way to make a roast beef. You can add or subtract any seasoning you want. * I don't add salt before cooking as it will draw out the juices. *Always check your roast with a meat thermometer, to get a perfect roast. I use a digital read thermometer. see bottom of directions for timetable. *Remember that the roast will continue cooking after you remove from the oven and let it sit. Usually about 5-10 degrees, so keep that in mind when you go to read the temperature *Allow the roast to sit for 10-15 minutes after removing from oven, so that the juices can redistribute, before you slice it.

    Recipe #370461

    Growing up Italian in New York, I only knew Pimento's as "that red thing inside a green olive". When I moved down south in 2002, I noticed most "true southerners" served pimento cheese spread alongside crackers at a party. I will admit some of them weren't so good (store brands) but then my boyfriends Mom served some, and it was love at first bite! Mine isn't as good as hers, but her recipe isn't written down, it's one of those "you use some of this and some of that, and when it looks too wet, it's done." I decided to experiment with several recipes and came up with this one, to tide me over between her little care packages she sends over to me and my daughter. It's a combination between Paula & Bobby Deen's recipes and a little of my own. Hope you enjoy as much as we do! So addicting.. I use a Kitchen Aid mixer, but you can mix by hand blender or Hand. I buy the preshredded cheeses to make the preparation go faster.

    Recipe #369544

    This is another Italian Easter favorite. Nice, but not too sweet. I buy two frozen Pie crusts and use one for the pie and the other I remove and flatten out, to cut into strips and make lattice pattern on top. Delicious! Enjoy!

    Recipe #365574

    The Easter dinner was always the best at Nanny's and I remember her making several types of pies for the meal. This is a savory pie filled with Italian meats and cheeses. The recipe makes 2 deep dish pies. It's best served at room tempature. Can be made several days before eating, just remember to try and take the chill off of it. You dont want to cut it or serve it hot, as the cheeses will still be runny and won't stay together. This dish freezes well. We usually eat this on Easter, but you can make it and serve with a nice salad on the side for dinner. Delicious! I use premade frozen pie crusts or buy the Pillsbury ones in the refrigerator section and fill my own pie plates.

    Recipe #365432

    When I moved down South, after living in New York for 35 years, I could no longer find a "deli" style potato salad I liked. I like a simple vinegar based salad with just a small amount of finely diced onion. Common in most Deli's on Long Island, NY. I have tweaked a few recipe's I found on recipezaar and below seems to be the best. I'm famous for cooking my potatos too long, so cook them till you think they're done! I like to use a new potato and tried it with those dutch baby yellow potatos last night. Yummy!

    Recipe #362517

    This is a traditional Italian Style Meatball, but I use Ground Turkey (White meat) instead of Beef. I've been trying to cut back on red meat in our diet, and this is just as good, if not better than my traditional meatballs! I usually serve them with my homemade pasta sauce with spaghetti. Since I use all white meat, there's not much fat in them, so I add a little more spices for extra flavoring. Delicious! If you don't have Pecorino Romano cheese, any Parmesan type of cheese will do.

    Recipe #347643

    Growing up, my grandmother made Pasta Fagioli all the time. The style of Pasta Fagioli she made was more of a pasta dish and not a soup. I always keep extra pasta water on the side, before draining the Ditalini noodles to help thin out the dish, after it's cooked. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did. Sprinkle some Parmigiana Cheese on top before serving....Locatelli is best

    Recipe #339486

    I had my first taste of these french fries in a New Port Richey, Florida restaurant, but when I moved to TN I missed them so much, that I made my own version. These are easy and make a great side dish or afternoon snack! Ps. This can be made with Low fast cheese and Bacon Substitute, but it's definately not a diet food!

    Recipe #339272

    I have tried many different Potato soup recipes from Recipezaar, but none were exactly what I was looking for. My mom used to make an amazing potato soup, but I could never duplicate her recipe. She's one of those "use a pinch of this and a dash of that", (not exact a recipe if you know what I mean, all of our pinches are different...LOL) All I knew is that she used Potatoes, Cream, onions and bay leaves....Once the soup is cooked and the veggies are tender I use an immersion blender to puree the soup to make it nice and creamy. (I use a Braun hand held mixer)..

    Recipe #338982

    These burgers are similiar to White Castle/Krystal type burgers. I use Sara Lee Dinner rolls that come 12 to package and can be found in the bread section of most supermarkets. The recipe sounds complicated, but I prep everything ahead of time so that once I start frying the burgers, I can make 12 of them in less than 15 minutes. I usually serve 3 burgers per serving. I hope you and yours enjoy them as much as my family. These are requested twice a week in my house!

    Recipe #336455

    This is a perfect recipe to make during the end of Summer into fall, when Eggplants are plentiful. It can be eaten by itself (like a vegetable stew), over pasta, as a sandwich on some Italian bread (sprinke Mozzarella on top and melt) or an appetizer (served on thinly sliced toasted Italian Bread). There are many ways to serve it. You can also add 1 Zucchini diced to the mixture while cooking, but I grew up with the below recipe. I also add extra Garlic when I make, but I love Garlic! I tend to use 6 Large cloves. I use minimal salt and pepper during the cooking as I always prefer to allow my family to add more if they like. You can always add more! If your serving like a dip, taste before presenting and adjust the seasoning to your liking.

    Recipe #331391

    There are a lot of sugar free granola recipe's out there, but they include honey. Honey has a ton of sugar in it and can't be used by a diabetic. I found that a lot of stores are now selling sugar free imitation honey and it works just as well. Make sure the honey is Sugar free. The bottle will say imitation. You can make this recipe using any type of dried fruit. I have tried it using dried mango, cranberries, guava, pineapple, cherries, raisins, berries and apricot. Just make sure the dried fruit doesn't have added sugar in it.

    Recipe #281244

    I got this off a box of Velveeta Cheese when I saw it made on Good Morning America. The recipe is exact, i haven't changed it. I usually buy the large block of Velveeta cheese and store any unused cheese in ziploc bags, so I'm forever searching for the recipe. It's easy and fast. My family swears it tastes just like KFC! You can also put the Macaroni and Cheese in a greased casserole dish and make a topping out of 1 sleeve of crushed Ritz Crackers and 1 stick of melted butter. Combine and then sprinkle on top of casserole. Bake in 350 degree oven till top is golden brown.

    Recipe #280594

    Being Italian, I have a ton of family recipe's that have been handed down for generations that I love, but since I'm getting older, I have started to now play with them and make healthier versions. This is a true NY style cheese cake made with Ricotta, but i eliminated the sugar and some of the fat without compromising the taste. This is a dense, but light, cheesecake that you can serve as is or with fruit topping. I hope you enjoy as much as my family has. You really do have to refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hours for it to firm up.

    Recipe #272102

    One night my mom made up this easy recipe and my daughter begs for it weekly! It's only 4 ingredients and takes 1/2 hour to cook! I have made it using fresh cut potatoes and it works out just as good, but just takes a little longer to cook. If you don't have a large enough skillet, I have included how to finish off in the oven as well. I hope your family enjoys as much as mine! PS. Tastes even better the next day!

    Recipe #242067

    Ever since I began to make this recipe, I'll never go back to store bought shells again! It's actually easier to make and stuff your own crepe's than it is to boil the shells and have them fall apart while filling them. I can't believe how easy it is and my grandmother is proud of me now! Whenever I make these Manicotti, i always make extra and freeze them individually without sauce, so that on those nights when your running late, take a jar of sauce and layer in a baking dish and cover with foil. bake about 45 minutes and have a home cooked meal in less than an hour! Just add a salad and bread! I hope you all enjoy!

    Recipe #185931

    I obtained this recipe from Paula Deen's cookbook, "The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. It was the easiest recipe I have ever made and it tasted so good. I have also made the recipe substituting Splenda for the sugar and it came out just as good!
