I promised big things to come here on meganeilers.wordpress, and let me tell you the wait is almost over. To my repertoire of categories (like Obsession of the Week and Fun Finds) I will be adding posts about one of my passions in life: cooking!
For those of you who took the time to check out my “about me” page you know that I am of Sicilian heritage. Obviously, this means I am a fantastic cook, simply based on my DNA, right?! Not exactly…
The first 18 years of my life I spent a lot of time hovering around both my mom and dad (who are great chefs) while they were in the kitchen. Thankfully some of their good mojo rubbed off on me, and I proudly admit to being a decent cook–especially when one considers it is based on a college budget (filet mignons aren’t exactly in my grocery cart when I leave the store).
Anywhoo, this new category will be called The Sicilian Kitchen. I will be posting recipes, pictures, and simple how-to instructions to help aid any of you readers who either need help learning some basic cooking skills or just need a fresh idea for dinner. In honor of this new add-on, I will be starting with my mom’s lasagna–it seemed appropriate to start with something traditionally Italian. A friend of mine asked me to teach her how to make it and I decided this would be the perfect start to The Sicilian Kitchen!
So come on back Monday to see how my Italian feast went Sunday night…I would post it on Sunday night, but the premier of Amazing Race will be on, so you know I won’t be blogging (I’m literally squealing with excitement)!
caprese sandwich....my favorite version of grilled cheese (mozzarella, basil, tomato)
