I wish I could "Fix & Forget it" with fresh pasta. Specificly raviolis. Or any kind of Chinese food. I know you can reheat it, but it just isn't the same.

susan56bft at gmail dot com

Susan said...

For Italian food I would have to say Cannoli. I love them and would eat them by the dozen everyday if they didn't make me feel so guilty and send me out for more excercise!

susan56bft at gmail dot com

Susan said...

I wish I could use real Cream and not have to subsitute. I love the rich flavor of cream in my baking. When I make a cream soup it just tastes better with real cream and seems to bring out the flavors even more.

susan56bft at gmail dot com

Susan said...

Down home cooking is probably anything fried. Fried fish, fried chicken, fried pork chops, fried fruit pies, fried potatoes.

we do try to eat healthy and limit the fried foods to once or twice a month. And they taste wonderful!
