Fried Nutella Pies

This post is LONG overdue. I made Fried Nutella Pies on one of my last nights in Chicago, while I was sitting at home bored. I had spent the day packing and running errands, so when I was got home I didn’t have anything to do until my friends got home from work. While IContinue reading “Fried Nutella Pies”

The summer started off to a great start, so I thought. I couldn’t wait to head home to Indy for the Italian festivalContinue reading “Banana Bread”

Page Family Meat Pie

While I was home for Easter I got to spend that Saturday with my mom and my cousin Concetta cooking, laughing and just having a fun girls day. When I woke up Saturday morning, it was to my favorite smell in the world, my mom’s spaghetti sauce! I told her that I hope heaven smellsContinue reading “Page Family Meat Pie”

Italian Adventures around Chicago

The Italian Expo was in Chicago this past weekend, so my Grandparents, parents, and my Aunt all came into town to check it out! They took a bus down with the Indianapolis Italian Heritage Society and stayed at a hotel downtown. I was beyond excited they were coming, not only because I missed them, butContinue reading “Italian Adventures around Chicago”

Holy Rosary Italian Street Festival

With much regret, I have to say that with all of the excitement, work, and fun going on during the Italian festival, I got really distracted and forgot to take pictures of the most important part…the food!  Friday was a pretty hectic day, considering it took me forever to try to get out of Chicago. Continue reading “Holy Rosary Italian Street Festival”

Food Extravaganza

“Other things may change us, but we start and end with family.”― Anthony Brandt I came across this quote and I wanted to share it.  Of everything I know, this quote is something I know to be 100% true.   No matter what, no matter where, no matter when, family should be at the core ofContinue reading “Food Extravaganza”

Snow for the First Day of Spring? Not a fan.

Today is the first day of spring, and to welcome in the lovely season, snow.  Thank you Chicago.  I am so glad I did not get over zealous about the spring weather lately because I just knew it was too good to be true.  My parents came to visit this weekend and although I wasContinue reading “Snow for the First Day of Spring? Not a fan.”

A St.Patrick’s Day Breakfast

This weekend, Chicago will be celebrating the wonderful day of St.Patrick, and dying the river a lovely shade of green.  Being Italian, St.Patrick’s day was never a big deal, but growing up, all of my friends happened to be Irish.  Very Irish.  I have even walked in the Indianapolis St.Patrick’s day parade carrying a bannerContinue reading “A St.Patrick’s Day Breakfast”
