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!

BBQ Sauce & Chicken Quarters (Appliance Wars: Episode 3)

Nonna is learning from experience and Appliance Wars: Episode 3 saw the best and most consistent results across appliances. Nonna cooked 4 chicken quarters each in the oven, instant pot, and air fryer. She even tried her hand at her own BBQ sauce, using, of course, her favorite spices & seasonings. Watch the video to see the results and if you have something you would like Nonna to experiment with, just let her know. She is all about trying new things, even when she has to try it a second or third time around!

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! The recipe is easy and the beverage is perfect for a friendly, yet fun filled get together with those old enough to drink (just remember to assign a designated driver)! You can find the written recipe on my website at www.nonnasnowdencooks.com. Nonna hopes you enjoy the video!

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).

Nonna’s Jambalaya

Nonna’s Jambalaya is very versatile. You can change the recipe, use the cajun spices you like best, add more or less meats, different color bell peppers, mix in vegetables such as green onions or mushrooms, or even swap out the onion for some shallots! Additionally, Nonna prepares the white rice simply, but effectively. Nonna’s No Fuss Jambalaya is delicious!
