Personal Notes:
*LoCiceros is daughter-in-law LeeAnn's suggestion since Ricky converted to Greek Orthodox after marriage.
So it is most appropriate that this particular recipe is a blend of ethnic backgrounds coming together for a tasty dish with relative ease to prepare.
Cooking is my way of participating in arts and crafts. The aromas and chopping and slicing; even the cleaning up as I go is restorative. Gloria is a willing participant in my cooking adventures no matter what the final result. A note about tumeric. Use it whenever possible as it contains anti-toxin and healing properties.
