|I grew up in a small town in upstate New York in an Italian neighborhood with all the fresh baked bread and pastries, the homemade pasta, and lots of wine. Not, that I didn't care for the great food but I was more into playing with my food. Making this with it, boy my Mom would always yell "Donny stop playing with your food and eat". Well I didn't listen to her because I am still playing with my food. I have been saving recipes for many years some I cut out of newspapers, magazines; others I got frommy mom, aunts, and some are mine. I picked out the ones I thought you would enjoy and have the most fun with. So don't be afraid to "Play With Your Food"; It just tastes better when you do. So enjoy PaPa Dom's Fun With Food. Please give me a yell if you would like a special recipe I have many.
