I received all my inspiration for cooking from my Italian Grandmother. I never realized how much I really enjoyed cooking until after my Grandmother was gone. I remember sitting and watching her for hours in the kitchen kneading bread, rolling pasta dough, by hand or just baking a cake from homemade scratch ingredients. Over the years, all us Grandchildren sit and talk about how she would just take turns and call a family member and ask us what type of cake we would want. It didn’t have to be a special occasion. She just loved to make everyone happy. She found a way through everyone’s tummy. I remember my Grandmother making a red wine sauce that she used to pour over our French Toast. I am pretty sure it was homemade wine that my Grandpa used to make. Since I do not have homemade wine available I decided to create a recipe using Lambrusco Wine, made from the Italian Lambrusco Grapes.
