Tammi over at Mamma’s Meals is hosting a meatless #SundaySupper this week, so why not bring one of my grandfather’s […]

Penne with Spicy Pumpkin and Sausage Sauce #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on September 22, 2013

What’s not to love about fall? Thoughts of turning leaves, cool, crisp evenings, and cozy sweaters paint a romantic portrait in my mind.

Easy Italian Wedding Soup #SundaySupper

by Anne Papina on January 13, 2013

When it comes to meal time, do you sit at the table or stand and graze? For the longest time, I’ve been a grazer. Heck, when you’re single, what’s to stop you from foregoing a plate entirely and noshing straight out of the pan? So bad, I know. What’s worse, I eventually turned Morgan into […]
