Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Rating: Unrated
An easy and delicious way to prepare tender barbecued ribs without the barbecue!

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Rating: Unrated
This is the kind of recipe that you just throw together. No need to truss or fuss. Pop it into a very hot oven and it is ready in a hurry.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Rating: Unrated
Authentic Italian-style risotto cooked the slow and painful way, but oh so worth it. Complements grilled meats and chicken dishes very well. Check the rice by biting into it. It should be slightly al dente (or resist slightly to the tooth but not be hard in the center).

Pork Tenderloin alla Napoli

Rating: Unrated
If you like the robust flavor of olives, tomatoes, and rosemary, this is the dish for you. I find it works best using a cast iron skillet.

Homemade Lasagna

Rating: Unrated
This is my mom's special homemade lasagna recipe with made from scratch tomato sauce and delicious, cheesy filling. I have found none better anywhere. Serve with a leafy green salad and crusty garlic bread, if desired.

Traditional Osso Buco

Rating: Unrated
This recipe is a traditional but simple way of cooking Osso Buco (veal shanks). The white wine is a must in this dish.

Cabbage Rolls

Rating: Unrated
This is a family recipe that goes back more than 80 years. I have made modifications to this recipe to enhance the taste and flavor. These cabbage rolls freeze well.

Real Italian Calzones

Rating: Unrated
This is real calzone, because there is no tomato sauce INSIDE of it! We eat it at least once a week. Have a bowl of tomato or spaghetti sauce on the table for people to top their calzone with, if desired.

American Lasagna

Rating: Unrated
Making this lasagna a day ahead and refrigerating overnight allows the spices to meld, and gives it exceptional flavor.

Easy Lasagna I

Rating: Unrated
A super easy and fast beef lasagna recipe. It is made with a prepared sauce, and requires no boiling of the noodles.

Barbecue Ribs

Rating: Unrated
This recipe is easier than it sounds. I usually cook the ribs the day before and grill them for a quick dinner the next night. FYI: the sauce is much better after it is cooked. It is not a dipping sauce.

Risotto alla Milanese

Rating: Unrated
Typical Italian risotto as the tradition of my city wants it. Directly from Milano I send you this wonderful recipe!

Pizza On The Grill I

Rating: Unrated
Even with a baking stone, a conventional oven is no match for a professional oven when it comes to making pizza. At home, or rather in your backyard, the grill is the way to go. The heat of a hot grill is perfect, and makes it possible to make incredible pizza at home. Use your favorite toppings, but keep in mind not to overload the pizza. Keep it light. Try it - everything is better on the grill!

Italian Roast Beef I

Rating: Unrated

Tender, seasoned beef that can be sliced and served as a sandwich or as an entree. Best to fix day before serving and refrigerate. Makes slicing easier. Delicious!
