“As a cook, I love dishes that are simple, honest, delicious and bring people together. To me, food is more than sustenance. It’s about life. Along with my family, food is central and sharing it with those around me.“

Brunch is one of my all-time favorite meals. It’s like breakfast, but better, because it’s usually more relaxed, more drawn-out, and involves a crowd. Oh yes, and there’s usually a cocktail involved!
My friend Irene and I were recently discussing brunch, talking about what Italians vs. North Americans typically eat in the mornings – Italians almost never eat anything sweet for breakfast, whereas Canadians love their pancakes, maple syrup and sweet rolls!
What’s a party without a cheesy, warm dip straight from the oven. This is one is an upscale version of the nachos and cheese you get at the concession stand at hockey games, a place I am quite familiar with after having my boys play for many years.
This dip is loaded with little crumbles of spicy chorizo sausage and packed with Monterey jack cheese.
Cornmeal and Olive oil for dessert? This combination is common in Italy and especially in Southern Italy where olive oil reins supreme instead of butter in baking. What I love most about this recipe is how easy it is to pull together quickly.
