Cindy on Mass Appeal May 6, 2016 preparing Pork Tenderloin with Peppers and Onions

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) 

I just love one-pot meals.  The best part about this recipe is you can do all of the chopping up in advance and when you are ready to cook just take out that one pan!  Use a pretty pan and bring it from stove to table..  A delicious Paleo Recipe for Everyday to Gourmet!

I love my Braising Pans for most of my one-pot recipes!

I am so excited that D & D Market is now expanding to Wethersfield, CT. I buy my beef, sausage, olive oil, and other lovely products from D&D and I am looking forward to seeing their new location. Nothing beats family-run stores, and the people at D&D make you feel part of the D'Aprile family! 

As the third-generation steward of D&D Market in the city's South End, Daniel D'Aprile Sr. keeps close to tradition, right down to using his grandfather's recipe for homemade sausage.

Fun and Healthy Easter Egg Hunts

Easter egg hunts are the best part about Easter. Seeing the children frantically running and searching for their hidden treasures is a sight that will bring joy to anyone on Easter morning. Because Easter egg hunts are so much fun for both kids and adults parents will want to hide even more eggs to make the fun last longer. The only problem with this is that the more eggs kids get, the more sugar they will consume.

Italian Easter

Easters in Italy are much more elaborate than the Easters that we celebrate today in the United States. Easter is a very important holiday in Italy and is given more than just one day to be celebrated. In many Italian towns the Easter celebration begins on the Friday or Saturday before Easter. The days before Easter include intense masses followed by church processions with statues of Jesus and the Virgin Mary through the streets of Italy.

Meal Planning and Grocery Shopping Tips

I was a single mother for almost 15 years. Yes that was a long time but I do miss the days when my kids were home.  We had a “family meeting” every Sunday where we would go through all of the grocery store flyers and we would all come up with ideas for breakfast, school lunches, after school snacks and dinners.  After a long day of work and a busy schedule with the kids cooking on Sunday’s made the rest of our week more organized and everyone happy!
