As 2019 is well upon us, I realize that I have now have 2 bad addictions to battle.

Pizza and Pizzelle.

These 2 demons are going to be responsible for me eating more salads and exercising more.

I know you know what pizza is…but are you familiar with pizzelles?

The Pizzelle is a wafer-type of cookie that originated in Ortona, in the Abruzzo region of central Italy in the 8th century.

It’s made by pouring batter between 2 plates of an iron and then held over a fire, or now…heated electrically.

Usually, the iron stamps a snow flake design onto both sides of this thin crispy golden treat and is usually seen more often around Christmas

In Italian pizzelle means, “small, flat, and round.”

In my book, it means, “delicious.”

Happy Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Muffins.

Thanksgiving.

A home filled with amazing aromas, family, friends and food.

A holiday to be thankful for so many things, to give thanks to others and to relax…but not for the cook, unless you play your cards right.

As a foodie, I do love Thanksgiving, but not for the main course. The big bird.

God knows that I can get creative in planning, prepping and preparing the perfect poultry, (say that three times fast), but for me my true passion is in the appetizers and sides.

The turkey is and will always be the center of attention and it will always be the big boss and the star of the show, but do not forget that there are many players that need to come together to make a perfect performance.

Enter the perfect muffin.

Winter is finally here in New York.

I went outside this morning about 6 am and it was 11 degrees. When it’s 11 degrees it feels like 3 degrees, so I ran back into the house for the warmth of my coffee cup and laptop and to think about hot food and delicious treats.

Right now is prime baking season, so I’m joining the cool kids and turning up the freak switch to high.

Ok, I’m not that outrageous and there is no freak switch…just my oven that ..um..I’m turning up to high.

Enough with my failed attempts of culinary comedy and trying to fit in with the Millennials.

 On with the show.
