Do You Like Italian Food and Cooking?

You are in for a treat!

You are going to experience the world of simple Italian food and cooking -- with a glance at life in Italy a long time ago. Many of the recipes include cooking ideas and simple instructions along with stories of nostalgic memories.

This type of Italian food and cooking is fashioned after everyday soups, vegetables, breads and pasta dishes along with some Holiday and dessert recipes from a unique area of the world.

My mother, grandmother and great grandmothers cooked these foods for their families. They are from a time when there was no water in the homes. The women had to go wash their vegetables in a spring located down a hill -- and carry water in containers back up to the house before they could prepare the meals.

You'll find these recipes easy to prepare, inexpensive, wholesome, and the taste... well, you be the judge after you try a few!

Share your thoughts, ideas and comment and visit often.

I hope you enjoy the recipes as much as I do.
