Italian Anisette Cookies caradifalco.com My Aunt Linda always brings these pretty, sweet cookies to our Christmas Eve celebration (and others throughout the year!). They're delicious, and look so cute with their rainbow colored sprinkles! The cookie itself ins't too sweet because of the amazing, liquor flavored icing on top. These are a family favorite for us, and I hope they become one for you too!
Traditional Basil Pesto — CaraDiFalco.com This basic basil pesto is part of our annual "Italian Night" dinner that my aunt hosts every summer - the name of the evening is ridiculous because every night my family is altogether is Italian Night! But it's a quick and simple sauce that is light and refreshing on hot summer nights.
Sweet Potatoes — CaraDiFalco.com Like most Italian families, we have family that isn't necessarily blood. But they are family none-the-less! This recipe comes from one of my mother's dear friend's Debbie who is always at the table with us for Thanksgiving! I could eat these every day. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Italian Shepard's Pie — CaraDiFalco.com A friend of mine from high school shared a photo of this recipe years ago on Facebook. It was so creative I had to have it! I've made a few adjustments since then but either way you do it, it's delicious and warming. Enjoy!
