Nonnies Cooking from the Heart

Some say cooking is a chore.  Some say cooking is too stressful.  Some even say cooking takes too long to get to the end product, but for Italians cooking comes from the heart!   That’s where Nonnie’s cooking came from.   Nonnie was an extraordinary cook whose family took great pleasure in her lovingly prepared meals. A meal was not complete without a fabulous dessert and there were always cookies in the cookie jar.  She believed sitting down and eating meals together (which we might add is something that seems to have gone extinct) was the bond that brought families together on top of enjoying GREAT food and come on, ya gotta love food!

A quote from the book Eat, Pray, Love said it best... "I love my pizza so much, in fact, that I have come to believe in my delirium that my pizza might actually love me, in return. I am having a relationship with this pizza, almost an affair."

And this relationship has no drama!  Nonnie’s recipe box is filled with recipes from generations past.   In fact, the Enchanted Chicks have decided to attempt to cook some of these coveted recipes every now and then and share with all of you.  We can only try to cook as well as Nonnie did.  We know it won’t be exact because Nonnie’s heart is like no other!   So…welcome to Nonnie’s Cooking from the Heart.   We know you'll love the first one, so stick around!

Personal comments from the Chicks:

Spicy Chick:  One of my favorite recipes of mom's was her Wonder Cake!

Sassy Chick:  I loved grandma's ginger cookies the best.

Vintage Chick:   I couldn't get enough of her tea cakes!  The dogs loved 'em too.  Lol!

Apprentice Chick:   Hands down...the Wonder Cake.
