Cookbook Recipe
Swiss chard and Bean Soup
The Italian Cuisine section will have recipes handed down from my Italian grandmother,Madelaine. These are all healthy and economical. She cooked for 10 people and my mother and I cooked for a family of 6. We were on a very tight budget. These recipes are heart healthy. We now know scientifically the Mediteranian Diet is the best in the world. Use the best quality ingredients you can afford.

Cookbook Recipe
Italian Hunter Style Chicken
This is a classic favorite of the family. Absolutely delicious served with fresh mashed potatoes, green peas and the sauce. It will leave you wanting for more and will want to make weekly as it is quick and easy. Even better left over ,so make plenty.

Cookbook Recipe
Fish Chowder
This is my mother,s recipe for an excellent fish chowder. We grew up in New England which is the land of the chowders.

Cookbook Recipe
Mushroom Parmigiana in Phyllo
You can make ahead and freeze these scrumptious appetizers,then bake off in oven before serving. These are a wow and worth the effort. Using a food processor will shorten the prep time.

Cookbook Recipe
8 hour Sunday Italian Tomato Sauce
Wow! I make a big batch and freeze. I use a crockpot or very large LE CRUESET pot. I freeze in 1 quart containers. When I defrost and cook in microwave, I add another can of Red Pack tomato puree. I add 1 tsp. of sugar,oregano and basil and cook in microwave on 70 % for 20-30 minutes in a larger container. This only gets better with freezing and can make for a quick meal during the week. When I cook a bone- in pork roast, I freeze leftovers to make the base of the sauce which is sweet and delectable.

Cookbook Recipe
The Best Ever Italian Meatballs
This recipe has been adapted over the years by my mother and myself. These freeze well and can be kept plain to make and Italian sandwich with provolone or American cheese. I use Cooper cheese which is a blend of American and cheddar cheese. Very delicious and you can add sauce and jarred red roasted sweet peppers to make an out of sight sub.

Cookbook Recipe
Italian Style Caesar Salad (no anchovies)
Make a huge batch. At family gatherings people can't get enough. So simple , yet extremely easy and delicious. You can add cooked meat or fish to make a complete meal. The very easy grilled Caesar recipe goes perfectly with this.

Cookbook Recipe
Pizzelle
These are very special cookies. My grandfather worked at a steel mill and made two pizzelle irons, complete with a 2 sided design and a long forged handle to make one at a time over a gas flame. We usually made them for Easter and Christmas. My 3 sisters and myself would take turns, as this was a very tedious task. Today, I have a 4 cookie electric, Teflon pizzelle/waffle(order on-line) that makes things quicker. You can adapt this recipe(see cookbook) and use the baker to make ice cream sandwich cookies. The possibilities are endess. You can also make shells for cannoli and waffle cones. This is a big time commitment recipe, but the results are well worth it. You will get rave reviews.You can make this recipes a day ahead, take out to room temperature & make in batches.

Cookbook Recipe
Anise and Walnut Biscotti
These rival the best bakeries in the North End of Boston. At Christmastime, our family of 6 went to visit a bakery a friend of my mother's owned in the North End of Boston. We went ice skating for free and saw the reindeer at the Boston Common. It was always a special time of year for us, as money was scarce and toys were in short supply for a family of 4 girls. My Nana Stewart would take us to see the windows of Jordan Marsh Department Store in Boston, along with the Enchanted Santa's Village. We were treated to either the Famous Jordan Marsh blueberry muffins(see Volume II-Family for recipe) or next door to a chicken pot pie at Filene's Department Store. A quick mass at Saint Anthony's mass completed a very cherished time of year.

Cookbook Recipe
Italian Roasted Cauiliflower
I have recently discovered the wonderful world of roasted vegetables. I began to experiment with different vegetables, beginning with one of my favorites cauiiflower. I have a decadent fried version in this cookbook. This is much healthier, but still delicious.

Cookbook Recipe
Italian Confetti Cookies
It took over 20 years to find this authentic Italian cookie recipe. My sister, Caren, obtained it through a friend. I cherish these cookies as they rival the best bakeries in the North End of Boston . These are very special and bring back good childhood memories. This are low cost, delicious and would make a wow addition to a bake sale or as a hostess gift!

Cookbook Recipe
White Zinfandel Sangria
So delicious, beautiful, and easy to make. Make plenty and make ahead. Great for picnics, luncheon , or special occasions. Pretty in a large glass pitcher as you can add whatever favorite fruits you like.

Cookbook Recipe
Italian Iced Coffee
So delicious. You can add a 1/2 oz. of your favorite liqueur such as Kahlua,annisette, or peppermint schnapps.The list is endless as the variety of delicious flavors are available.

Cookbook Recipe
Deep Fried Anise Cauiliflower
Highly addictive! Guests go nuts for this and fight for every piece. You can't ever make enough. I serve it with a large bowl of Ranch dressing,but also works with blue cheese. People still talk about this years later.

Cookbook Recipe
Italian Zucchini Crescent Pie

This is a delicious and easy to make one dish recipe. Substitute your favorite mushrooms and pasta. Easy to make for a week night or for company. Serve with green beans, asparagus or peas.

Cookbook Recipe
Fried Tortellini with Marinara Sauce or Cajun Aolli
These make a great appetizer serve with a marinara sauce, or the Cajun Aoili which is out of sight. People will remember these for a long time.

Cookbook Recipe
Cajun Aioli Sauce for Fried Tortellini
This dipping sauce can be used for any fried vegetable. So very scrumptious- the vegetables are limitless.

Cookbook Recipe
Beef Braciole (Stuffed Beef Rolls)
My grandmother made these delicious beef rolls and put them in her tomato sauce to simmer with the other meats. Depending on the part of Italy, some put in white raisins, which are optional. Make a lot, people usually want more.

Cookbook Recipe
Parmesan Pine Nut Muffins
These savory muffins can be an appetizer or served along with any Italian meal. They are delicious and very unusual.

Cookbook Recipe
Spaghetti with Vegetables and Chickpeas or Chicken
You can use as many of your favorite vegetables to add a punch to this hearty meal. Easy to make and to do on a weekday night. The variations are limitless. You could also add cooked chicken from a store bought chicken to use instead of chickpeas. You can make this vegetarian by omitting the pancetta and using olive oil and chickpeas only.

Cookbook Recipe
Very Easy Caesar Grilled Chicken
Our family eats piles of this all year round. Leftovers make great chicken salad or serve with the Caesar Salad Recipe and Italian bread for a great meal.

Cookbook Recipe
Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes
This is probably one of the easiest dishes I make weekly. It is a one pan meal. The chicken is extremely moist. The leftovers taste even better. The extra chicken makes excellent chicken salad meat. Serve with carrots, green beans or peas. Excellent for company. You can relax while it is cooking and it can stay warm for a long time. The leftover chicken lasts 3 days.

Cookbook Recipe
Pasta e Fagoli
We were very poor growing up. Soups, like the Swiss Chard and Beans(in book) and Pasta Fagoli were weekly staples. Who knew we were eating the most healthy scientifically proven Mediterranean Diet? We also ate Scrambled eggs with green or red peppers and tomato and eggs every Friday night because we were Catholic. Again, eggs are now proven to be part of a heart healthy diet. Being on a budget can be a healthy advantage This is a fabulous version and worth the effort. I have included a very quick and easy version in the book when time is short.

Cookbook Recipe
Quick and Delicous Pasta Fagoli
When you do not have the time to make the other recipe, this is a good substitute, especially on a week night. It makes a lot and is great left over.

Cookbook Recipe
Baked Stuffed Red Bell Peppers
These go well with any pork roast. I use the leftovers in sauted onions, zucchini and yellow squash. I freeze any extras, so make some. Add extra flavor to a usually bland sauté of vegetables.

Cookbook Recipe
Rosemary Apricot Pork Tenderloin
This is an easy an elegant dish. The stuffed red bell peppers would go perfectly, along with some polenta. A great company meal to impress.

Cookbook Recipe
Italian Christmas Cake
This is a very special cake that requires a lot of special ingredients in small quantities.. It is the best version of a fruit cake , so you might as well make a few for gifts and your friends won't try to get rid of it because it is so different and delicious.

I began cooking for my family at 12 years old. My mother,Eleanor Stewart, learned from her immigrant Italian mother-in-law, Madelaine. My mother was an avid home cook,recipe and cookbook collector. Not a phone call nor visit was complete unless we discussed the finest ingredients, a change in an existing recipe, or an excellent new dish to try. I continued in the tradition of my grandmother and mother. Recipes continued to come in from my 3 sisters, Caren, Robyn,and Lauren. My friends and my best friend,Joy,also a great cook, added to my vast collection. We were on a very tight budget growing up and many of the recipes are economical. Little did we know that the Mediterranean Diet would be scientifically proven to be the most healthiest diet in the world.
