My Mom's Zucchini Lasagna Mom and my brother, George, in Naples My mom, Angela, passed away in 1985. She was from Sicily and I was just really beginning to get into cooking when she died.

The amount of ricotta the recipe calls for seemed like a lot, so I scaled it back.
Pierogi Recipe October 2, 2010 My mom is obsessed with keeping a stocked freezer, but I guess I don’t really take after her, because my freezer tends to be relatively empty, aside from random containers of stock/ramen broth, frozen dumplings and pierogi.

I tell myself it’s because of ease and convenience, but really, I just love the taste of frozen pockets filled with deliciousness.

My sister called me up and said, "I'll make the apple crisp if you make the ice cream." Deal.

Spiral sugar cookies These colorful cookies from Sprinkle Bakes caught my eye last week as I perused for something festive to bring to Christmas Eve dinner. Aren't they pretty? The green swirl was fun for Christmas, but any color would be just as fun. Bright yellow for a spring-time cookie? Orange for a Halloween cookie? A swirl of colors for a birthday cookie?

Hummingbird High is getting all growed up. Blueberry Muffins Recipe Muffins are a dangerous thing in my kitchen. I don’t make them all too often because when I do, I can’t stop eating them.

In India, I grew up eating different kinds of Kheer such as Semolina Kheer, Vermicelli Kheer, Makhana Kheer, Carrot Kheer and Lauki Kheer.

Rice Kheer is the most popular of all; it is made on every special occasion and used as an offering at religious events.
