As you know by know my Mom was a great cook and growing up she  was always sharing her recipes with family and friends.  I still have people telling me a certain recipe of my Mom’s is one of their favorites and when they make her famous dish it reminds them of her.  Her Peach Pie was always one I remember growing up and now it is a favorite of my sisters to make for the family.

Recently I found her Chicken Marsala recipe which is in her handwriting which brought a smile to my face but it also reminded me of the first meal I ever made for Nick back in high school.  On Valentine’s Day with my Mom’s help I made Nick Chicken Marsala and Fettuccine Alfredo.  This meal has become a meal we make together on special occasions.  We open a bottle of wine and enjoy a night together of cooking one of our favorite meals.

Enjoy these three recipes that bring many memories to our family.
