Hi, I'm Italian and in Italian "Nona" means grandma. My Nona she loves to bake, everything and anything. She makes amazing Ricotta Cheesecake and delicate pasta dishes. She's always cooking up everything. And so my mom she took up all those recipes and she passed them to Aunt Ellie, and I get to enjoy those too. Hopefully, someday, I'll be able to make them too. Trust me, you can never go wrong with these recipes! And you know what's better? She's adding more, so now I get to add my own stuff to them too. So, yeah, that's the recipes that are passed down from generation to generation.
