AND

FRIENDS

 

 

This is a collection of recipes from family and friends, TV personalities, and stuff just found along the way.

There are handwritten recipes from long-gone relatives and things we’ve recently found.  There’s no real rhyme or reason to anything other than they’re things we like.

Because that’s really what it’s all about.

RECIPES

FROM

VILLA MODICA

 

 

Villa Modica is located in Modica, province of Ragusa, in Sicily – in the southeastern corner of the island. Close to Syracusa, Catania, and easy driving to Mount Etna, it’s the perfect location.

Our hosts, George and his lovely wife, Antonella, were the epitome of Sicilian hospitality.

George has a collection of recipes on his Villa Modica website that I have copied here for convenience.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit Sicily, there is only one place to stay.

LITTLE GRAM’S

COOKBOOKS

 

 

“Little Gram” was Mary Ferante, nee Taomina.  She was our sister-in-law Marie’s Grandmother, and, while not exactly a blood relation to us, was nevertheless “Little Grandma” to us as well.  She was spry, active, and ready to talk politics or cooking right up to her passing in July 2008 at 105.  Yes, one hundred and five.

The recipes as written are taken from Grandma’s own notes.

 OTHER

STUFF

 

 

This is a collection of recipes I have had on my computer for years. And years.  I am not sure where most of them ever came from.  I think  a lot of them were collected as ideas for work back in the days when we created recipes. Some of them worked their way into the house under a different guise and a lot of them have never been made in their posted form.
