"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

You can add up to 1/4 c more butter and another 1/2 t salt and
see if you like that taste better. If you want to frost you can
use a basic frosting recipe, but add 1/2 of a grated orange rind.
