Italian Easter Pie

Making this torta is a tradition in our house and it just doesn’t seem like Easter without it. As a college student my grandmother would pack me a piece to go and I would eat it on the train ride back to school. There are certainly variations on this recipe, some with a lot more […]

Mushroom & Taleggio Pie

I’ve been looking for an opportunity to use this box of puff pastry that I bought at Surfas-the restaurant supply store. Since it was sort of pricey I was hoping that it would be a step above the Pepperidge Farm brand that I usually pick up at the grocery store. I was cleaning up some […]
