"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

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I got this from my first mother-in-law. She was a good cook and loved these easy recipes. The family would get together at Labor Day and can pickles and tomatoes for a couple of days, playing poker and Michigan Rummy at night. These Spoon Burgers can actually be put in a slow cooker after the meat is browned.
