2009 recipes

Here you will find a comprehensive list of all of my recipes posted in 2009. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to leave them in the comment box below, or to contact me.

Hors d'Oeuvres | Antipasti
All the recipes in this list are for those small savory dishes served as an appetizer at the beginning of an Italian meal, designed to stimulate your appetite.

Pasta | Rice | Soup Starters
An Italian meal cannot be considered such without a starchy opener, be it pasta, risotto or a heart-warming soup.

Farfalle with Radicchio

Meat | Fish | Poultry Entrées
The main course in the Italian menu is called Secondo–'second'–and it follows the Antipasto and the starchy Primo.

Complete Meal Dishes | Piatti unici
A complete meal dish, or piatto unico, is a stand-alone preparation that can suffice in place of both first and second courses, like polenta for example.

Side Dishes | Contorni
Contorni are those supporting vegetables, salads or legumes that are usually served at the same time as the main protein course.




Beverages | Cocktails | Liqueurs

What are your favorite family recipes?


  1. Lola, thank you SO much!
    I have to confess to scrolling straight to desserts- I knew the no-bake raspberry tart would be there- it has become a staple of mine! But the surprise one was Salame di Cioccolato- it looks divine. I'm going to make that on Friday evening, and may well eat all of it after a long week's work!
    It's lovely to have your year's recipes all organised.
    I don't mind at all if you don't pass on that award- it is for you, to say thank you, and you do with it whatever you wish.
    Ciao for now!

  2. This is like giving me an autographed cookbook from you

    Thanks so so much!!!!

  3. Everything looks so wonderfully delicious!
    I bookmarked those blueberry streusels!

  4. What a great helpful idea, Lola! I promise I`ll try out some. Now, where do I begin...?

  5. Yum! My family's favorite is pasta al forno with lots of mozzarella and tiny meatballs!

  6. Thanks Lola for giving this to us. I recently went back and read your whole blog since I had missed a lot from the beginning. Brava!

  7. My goodness. You've blessed us with so many tempting treats! Thank you for the love.

    My favorite recipes are in my head. I don't believe I've written out more than one or two in my life. My Dad was the same way, and I regret not having his to refer to. I suppose I should write out some of mine, just in case anyone might feel the same about my food once I'm gone. Thanks for giving me this unintentional but needed nudge.

  8. So generous of you, thank you very much. Maybe this will be the year I can try some of your recipes. Maybe i'll call you if i have question?
    stay warm!

  9. Are those your homemade noodles? Mine never look like that but that's one of our favorite recipes.

  10. Wow! Quite a collection! Very impressive.


  11. Lola, this is a great idea! A fantastic and handy list of your recipes, thank you!

  12. We have recently discovered your blog and love this index of recipes. They look wonderful! I can't wait to try some of them.

    We recently started a blog for exchange students in Viterbo to learn about Italian cooking (http://buonaforchetta.wordpress.com).We look forward to sending them to your site too!

  13. it is for you, to say thank you, and you do with it whatever you wish.
