  • Anise-Almond Biscotti

    \"Biscotti have become very popular recently, but my mother-in-law, Helen, has been baking them for years,\" says Janet Mercuri of North Royalton Ohio. \"Now that I've started using her recipe, friends tell me that my biscotti taste just like their grandmothers' —and I'm not even Italian.\"

    \r\n

    These have a subtle anise flavor and would be nice with a caffè latte.

  • Baked Italian Meatballs
    These are really tasty and I love that they are baked in the oven rather than pan-fried. I found this recipe in Cooking light originally and have made them several times with great success. They freeze well after cooking - I just thaw them and add them to simmering sauce for a great spaghetti dinner on busy nights.

  • Italian Salad Dressing
    This is the salad dressing I grew up with that my mom created. As a child, I didn't realize there were any alternatives. To this day, my mom's salad dressing is still a favorite. Very simple to prepare. If you make it a little ahead of time, it will allow the flavors to blend. I hope you enjoy it!
