Well, since Easter is tomorrow, I thought I would share a traditional Italian food eaten around this holiday. There are several foods that can be typically found on an Italian table during this time.....what to choose......what to choose. Now, before I go further, let me confess that I don't actually have many specific memories of foods we ate during Easter that were particularly Italian.......maybe my memory is failing me??
I decided to ask my siblings for a little help jogging the old brain cells and, wouldn't you know, two of them remembered my gramma making a bread "with hard-boiled eggs placed in the braids, shell and all?" Isn't it funny how some memories are so vivid and some things just get a bit lost over time? (Funny, but also a little sad) Well..... that's the recipe I'm going to share with you. It's not my gramma's specific recipe, but one of the many that I came across while leafing through pages in my stockpile of cookbooks. This recipe is from Michele Scicolone and can be found in "Entertaining With The Sopranos" . Now, I never followed the t.v. series, but the cookbooks are pretty straight-forward and just kind of fun.
