Beef Burgundy in Puff Pastry #SundaySupper #HBTurns50

by Anne Papina on February 16, 2014

Some of the best meals start with wine. I should know–our family cooks just about everything in wine–chicken, pork, beef, you name it–if it’s going in the oven, it’s getting cozy in a bath of wine. So imagine how thrilled I was to learn that Gallo Family Vineyards was teaming with #SundaySupper to celebrate the […]

Baked Stuffed Pork Chops with Moscato Gravy #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on December 15, 2013

As you might imagine, my Swiss-Italian family is quite large and spread out, yet back in the day, we always seemed to find time to get together. Some of my most cherished childhood memories stem from the gatherings at Nona Mary’s house. That was the family home, a place where there was always a spot […]

by Anne Papina on November 24, 2013

It seems hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a few days away–are you ready? I’m not! You probably figure I’ve forgotten all about turkey day considering all the Christmas cookies I’ve been baking lately, but nothing could be further from the truth. Once I get Thanksgiving on the brain, all thoughts turn to the […]

Did you know the world’s largest cheese was an American Cheddar out of Wisconsin? True story. Made as a promotional gimmick for the Wisconsin exhibit at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, it measured 6 1/2 feet wide by 5 1/2 feet high by 14 1/2 feet long, and weighed in at a whopping 34,591 […]

Stuff-A-Roni (Beef and Spinach Filled Manicotti)

by Anne Papina on September 20, 2013

Comfort food comes in many forms, depending on your background. In our family, things like drunken chicken and stuffed zucchini are near the top of the list. There are a couple of dishes that are extra special, though–homemade ravioli being one of them. And if you’ve ever made ravioli, you know it can be a […]

Italian Gravy (Spaghetti Sauce)

by Anne Papina on September 14, 2013

Growing up, the making of the “gravy” was a big production. Actually, it still is, but once your kitchen fills with the heady aroma of fresh herbs and garlic, you realize it’s worth all the effort. A simmering pot of meaty-tomatoey-herby deliciousness promises of good things to come. My mom would start her day early, […]
