Asian Carp Cakes

This recipe is a favorite of Miss Mickey’s husband (remember Miss Mickey was the guest cook on the Plum Tart video). It is simply delicious. Nonna made a few minor changes. For instance, she substituted crab meat with Asian Carp. Asian Carp has a nice texture and a good taste (not fishy). The only problem is that the carp has a lot of bones. However, once you learn how to remove/grind the bones the fish is delicious. Check out how Nonna makes a delicious Asian Carp Cake!

Fish & Pasta Alfredo

Catch and Cook…Nonna caught the fish and a few hours later cooked it. She cooked Rock Cod caught in the Pacific Ocean out of Coos Bay, Oregon. She seared the fish and then baked in a delicious alfredo sauce. The entire West Coast family LOVED IT! Opa even said it was better the next day for lunch than it was for dinner!

Plum (Cheese) Tart

In this video, we come to you from Ms. Mickey’s kitchen in Coos Bay, Oregon. The plums were home grown in Mickey’s garden and are all by themselves incredible. Fresh home grown vegetables and fruits – well you just can’t do any better than that! Both me and Aunt Winkie want to thank Mickey for sharing her knowledge and kitchen with us. This tart was PLUM DELICIOUS! Seriously best tart either of us has ever had!

Spaghetti & Meatballs

This sauce was passed down from Nonna’s Great Grandmother “Mama Tess,” who immigrated from Sciliy in 1903. In fact, several limbs of the family tree and Nonna’s children, also, make this sauce. Both among the family branches and within the 5th generation, there are very few recipe adaptations (and those aren’t worth mentioning!!!). Mama Tess’ living and cooking relatives, especially Nonna, hope you enjoy this as much as the family does!

Strawberry Moonshine

This week Nonna made Strawberry Moonshine! Why? Because it is not only delicious, but also because no good story ever started with a diet soda!

Gamma’s Chicken and Mushrooms

This recipe comes from Nonna’s biggest rival, her grandson’s other grandmother, Gamma! Unlike other recipes (well, ALL the other recipes, really), Nonna actually followed Gamma’s recipe (because Gamma made her). It includes chicken and a great mushroom gravy that goes well with noodles and rice. The recipe has several moving parts, but none of those parts are complicated. This is the perfect recipe for guests, social functions, and board meetings for your favorite charity (Jump for The Rose).
