Mafalda – “Snake” Bread

Mafalda is snake-shaped bread. The sesame seeds give this bread a nutty taste. It is a firm loaf- great for cutting and spreading jams.

Stuffed Zucchini

Summertime is zucchini-time and CSA members are always trying to find another way to enjoy these versatile veggies. Traditionally, the stuffed zucchini can be cut into thirds and served as a side dish. They can also be enjoyed as a light meal.

Involtini di Pesce Spada – Swordfish Roll-Ups with Pine Nuts and Currants

I am descended from a long line of fishermen on my grandmother’s side. It is this legacy that has me interested in fish. Not necessarily in fishing, but in cooking the kind of fish found in the waters that surround Sicily. One of those fish is swordfish, a predatory fish with a long flat bill that looks like a sword.

Grilled Squid

This recipe is for grilled squid. It is a rare occasion when Wegmans has squid or octopus, so I got in line at the fish counter when I spotted squid in the case. During the day, I marinated it in lemon, homemade garlic paste, pepper, salt, parsley, thyme, oregano, and a few mint leaves.

Many traditional Sicilian kinds of wheat are at risk of disappearing because farmers are abandoning them for more profitable varieties. This recipe features homemade ravioli made with traditional Sicilian flours and cheeses. Delicious!
