When we aren’t throwing a 4th of July Pig Roast or an Oktoberfest, we cook and bake in the messiest ways – but all with love!
Our littlest, Fred, upon eating something delicious belts out, “Mama, it’s yummy in my tummy!” A pleased smile forms on his face and he rubs his belly in a circular motion. As an Italian mama, a happy and well fed child thrills me! And while I love to cook my family’s Italian specialities and bake all sorts of sweet treats, I’m not the chef in our family. Nope! My husband Gary is – he’s amazingly talented and super messy. While cooking isn’t his day job, it’s certainly his passion.
But we’re not the only ones who are passionate about food – we have a bunch of friends and neighbors who are just as crazy about entertaining eats as we are. Here, we share our recipes and stories with you.
How the hell does one go about roasting a pig in a box?
If you’re like Carla and me, you love good food, good friends and you LOVE a good pig roast. So what better for the 4th of July than to buy a 100 pound pig and invite over 100 of your best friends? But the question is, how the hell does one go about roasting a pig in a box?
