One of the downsides of getting all your groceries a few days before Thanksgiving is that you have all this yummy food in the house and days to try and avoid it. One of my favorite things I bought today is Westfield Farms’ Capri Cranberry Orange Goat Cheese. I am lactose intolerant, so goat cheese works for me. If you love anything cranberry-orange as I do, I highly recommend this. Just buy two.

I love making this recipe in the summertime, but it’s good any time. The apple cider vinegar is what makes this so fresh tasting. There are no boring flavors here! What I love about this recipe is that you can dice up any veggies you want and throw them in.
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup sugar (seems like a lot, but necessary to the recipe)
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 15oz. can chick peas, rinsed and drained
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes that never fails me. It is based on Rachel Ray’s “You Won’t Be Single for Long Vodka Sauce” recipe, but I have made it my own with a few additions.

It’s awesome served with crunchy garlic bread that you can dip into the excess sauce...
This is such an easy way to make breakfast for a crowd. I make it every year for the morning after Christmas when no one feels like cooking or serving. This can be assembled the night before, or just a couple of hours before. Once I only let it sit 45 minutes – it’s all good! This is a rich, hearty dish, but I have friends who have substituted low-fat ingredients and still found it quite yummy...
I come from a large Sicilian family. We are a very loud and very loving bunch. We LOVE to make food, share food, talk about food, and we’re usually planning our next meal before consuming our present one. Our favorite food is usually whatever we’re eating at the moment. My husband is Swedish and he tells me they are not obsessed with food, they have a normal relationship with food...
