Buon Giorno del Ringraziamento

Posted in Caro Diario.(dear diary..), cucina, entertaining, and Holidays

Thanksgiving Day is special for many reasons. Think of all the things, no matter how small or insignificant they may seem. In keeping with tradition of the first Thanksgiving – don’t forget about giving thanks for the wonderful food you enjoy- and anything that has been prepared at home is always special because you have given it your own special touch.  

 I know most will have the traditional turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes and more.  Mashed potatoes made from real potatoes with some broth, a small amount of butter is a great way make mashed potatoes healthy and delicious.

Instead of the mashed potatoes this year- we have decided to have risotto with funghi (mushrooms) this year instead. Always making it healthy- the risotto will be made with extra virgin olive oil, (light on the olive oil) fresh mushrooms, onions, real parmigiana-reggiano cheese, fresh veggie broth

In keeping it healthy and light- our meal will end with fresh fruit macedonia and a light version of pumpkin pie- pumpkin crostata. Pumpklin  and sweet potatoes (of course you know) are both  full of Vitamin A and great for your skin.

For any of these recipes, just email me at

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Ciao for now!
