Sunday Sauce alla Scorsese | Cooking Italian

Sorry about this. This is the post that I made on my BIA WordPress blog (Brut Imperial Antarctica). And it was the reference for all the cheese today. I seem to have forgotten where I posted what today and have now apologized for my mistake on both sites.

This is what I said in the first place on BIA:

“I was looking for the baked cheese in this script. I thought that’s what it meant, but I don’t have the time right now to look at the videos. I just thought the script from their home movie was funny. I thought it was a real movie, I was wondering what it was? You know, a funny mob movie but that was sad because what was funny about it was that no one was funny except in themselves. Oh well, that’s what it’s not.

So I thought I would reblog this for whoever has more time. I need to find an Italian baked cheese recipe now. I will.”

(So that is to explain cheese today on CPR — 12/03/2019.)

Mom’s famous spaghetti and meatballs….

City Foodie Farm

What truly makes a good meatball? I think inquiring cooks would like to know….

I don’t recall ever looking up a meatball recipe, except for when I was making some Swedish meatballs for the first time. But with a classic spaghetti and meatballs, I’ve always used my mom’s recipe. My dad still says to this day, that my mom’s recipe is the best. He actually texted me the other day asking for it. Ironically I was planning to make some this week. So here I am, the day before thanksgiving, making spaghetti and meatballs. Good thing I’m not doing much cooking tomorrow….

So rewind back to when I moved out. Long, long ago…I wanted to try and make my own spaghetti and meatballs. Maybe, I missed home a little? So, I emailed my mom, asking for her famous recipe. And she of course, email me back. And she signed it…

Homemade pizza recipe

City Foodie Farm

As promised I will share how you can make your own delicious homemade pizza! It’s really quite simple but there are a few kitchen tools that will make the process even simpler. You’ll find them below….

When we got married we were gifted a kitchen aid mixer from my husband’s parents. At the time we used it for making cookies but over the years it’s been used for a handful of things. Pizza dough is one of them. Now I couldn’t live without it!! Plus it reminds us of my mother in law we lost. It’s one of those things I would love to pass down to my children.

While in high school my husband worked at a pizza shop, so making pizzas has always been his specialty. And I guess he never lost his touch because he still makes amazing pizzas to this day.

A long time ago we…

Baked Cheese – Recipes for Baking Cheese

I am so mad at myself. I can’t believe I did what I did. I forgot to say that the 1 x 1 or 1 x 2 inch cuts of hard (but aging) parmesan, should also be no more than 1/2 inch thick if not preferably 1/4 inch thick. Somewhere around there, depending on how you’re oven sees it.

I simply cannot find a recipe for it. From time to time I would, but all that is available is cheese cheddar crisps and that isn’t what I had in mind, though it sounds pretty good.

This is nice, but I guess what I meant was like hard cheese that you would use to cook with, baked in the oven with maybe herbs. I know everyone has heard of baked cheese. So I meant oven baked parmesan. I’m not much of a cook and so I don’t want to give false instructions, like, cut off a hunk of firm but soft (both) parmesan from a wedge and make sure there’s no rind on it and cut it into usable chunks, like about an inch, even 2 inch, squares or 1 x 2 inch rectangles. Then line a cookie sheet with foil and place the parmesan squares or rectangles on the sheet. Have the oven warm at about 375 or 400 and no more and put the squares in the oven. Let them roast up to one side till kind of squeegy looking and then flip them over one by one with a fork trying not to burn your fingers for using it as a utensil. Then put the cookie sheet back in the oven and let the cheese cook to the other side until it seems browned and almost like it bubbles. If you smell roasting cheese it’s about to burn, so it should never cook that long.

See, these aren’t good instructions. And also you can make an herb bouquet or other seasonings and add garlic oils to it and have baked seasoned parmesan or else use asiago or romano. Just, that consistency of cheese. And it’s a snack. For a new way to eat cheese with your favorite crackers and fruit drink. Or maybe that’s just me and everyone else with think that’s gross. Ya, I eat too much hard cheese and tomato sauce anyway. Or at least I know I have.

So I need to find that actual kind of recipe and obviously you can parmesan anything — but I can’t find it. I will be looking out for it.
