About me

In 2009 I started out wanting to leave my kids the family recipe secrets.Then it became a passion to share with everyone and my blog was born What's Cookin' Italian Style Cuisine. My goal is to share the years of tested and enjoyed family traditional recipes with whomever shares the same passions as we do. Italian food has the same goal. Feed everyone that sits at your table, keep the family and friends fed and happy, and enjoy good conversation with everyone while eating with them! My hope is for you to find out of hundreds of shared recipes, one, that you will cherish and share with your family. From our house to yours, may you have many blessings and fine foods on your table!

Cooking Influences

Wow influences? Everyone in my family has had an influence on me, grandma, mom, dad, brothers, all cooks! All they had to do is say they loved something, I would instantly be experimenting in the kitchen on how to recreate that recipe to their liking. Mom and Dad couldn't beleive it, one day at 11 yrs old, they came home from work with dinner on the table, no lie. Spanish rice, burnt pork chops and brownies. Two out of three's not bad!

        I believe people are spiritually connected and the best way to recognize this connection is to look at your personal patterns, events in life, things and people that have been or are important to you. TConnection is not limited to these three things alone. There comes a time when we can right our wrongs or our ways and our friends are those whom often help us through connections that we do not even know exist until we share and connect the dots in our life. Claudia our paths are connected and I am grateful to have you as a friend. Your recipes are awesome!

              Claudia. Thanks for sending acknowledgment of my recipe "Ciamelli". You will find them quite tasty. I enjoy them at Holidays, when the family is home and we want a chewy bread with the meal. The are great with spaghetti. J. Gino Genovesi

                              Hi Claudia. I just browsed a lot of your recipes and I will be spending a lot of time going through them all. By the way I love the picture of the family in 1937. That is awesome. I'm certainly not the cook you are but I really enjoy cooking a meal and sharing it with family or anyone brave enough to try it. You have a lot of really neat recipes. Keep posting and thanks for sharing with all of us.

                                      Dear Claudia,
                                      I have a question about a recipe I made thirty years ago but which I cannot find. My parents had gone over seas and were returning home, and I made a big meal for them to welcome them back. It was May. Here's the really weird thing that I'm sure of. The recipe came out of The National Enquirer magazine. Yep. So this is a long shot, mainly because of my memory. I think I'm remembering that it was a layered Italian concoction. What was unusual was that it had grapes in it. I remember making this the summer after 8th grade, 1982. Based on your knowledge of Italian food, have you any idea what this recipe might have been? Thank you!!!

                                                hi chef, i am a hotelier in india, and work for a restaurant in five star hotel, but now i am thinking to open my own restaurant, the restaurant with a unique food concept which is going to target the youngsters, the food which is easy to cook and serve like fast food, can you please give some ideas what type of food would be the best.

                                                and all of the readers can also give their ideas, ideas are most welcome
