With Family and Friends

Some Recipes are more fun made with Family & Friends,


some recipes the chef doesn't want his secrets to get out
then there is the Cherished Family recipes friends have taught me to make  
                                                                                                         some things are just better shared

Mom's Lasagna


The best Lasagna with a hearty meat sauce and no ricotta cheese
that's right Mom uses mozzerrella and sharp cheddar in her Lasagna
yes, she is Italian









Lia's Clam Sauce    














Kifles

Al took his Kifles very seriously.
Kifles for Al

Me and my kids spent countless hours making Kifles for Al, his all time favorite treat we would quadruple the recipe the trip to Florida, 1 batch for Al, freeze 1 batch for 1/2 thru the trip, l batch for my Mom & Grandparents to share, 1 batch for immediate consumption.


 Ryan's Fajita's Chicken or Steak


The best part of Ryan's Fajita's is he does all the cooking
An easy recipe made more fun with family helping with all the
chopping, mashing and grilling being done.














Italian Meatballs
my Nonna would be proud of a very traditional meatball
These are always popular at family gatherings, often I make 5lbs of meatballs, now that's a lot of meatball!

One of the Best way to make Mai Tai's is by the Pitcher
