Sauteed Broccoli Rabe

Growing up half Italian, I’ve had a ton of pasta. A TON. My mom would make it, my aunts would make it and of course, my Nonna would make it. To this day, every family get together has some sort of pasta on the menu. Lasagna, manicotti, pasta with sauce, pasta with ricotta, ravioli and […]

My husband grew up going to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach Alabama almost every year because his parents have had a time share throughout his childhood. Last month, my husband, the kids, in-laws and I all took a trip down and enjoyed a nice vacation together. I can’t thank my in-laws enough for making memories with us […]
