Recipes By Judith Mayer
Caprese Salad, a classic summertime salad, was created in the 50s in Capri and should always be dressed with a drizzle of EVOO only! Balsamic vinegar would destroy the delicate flavor of the cheese. And use only the finest ingredients since it's such a simple salad!
Grab a bunch of lemons on your next trip to the Farmers Market so you can make the perfect summer cordial—limoncello. Plan ahead because it takes at least a month to make! You just need lemons, vodka, sugar, water and time.
Global Cuisine, Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American tradition on Christmas Eve. A large meatless meal is common in Italy, but the Italian Americans gave it a theme of 7 Fishes. There are no rules on what dishes make up the seven, just lots of seafood!
Fave Memory - I remember first making the recipe for Fudge from the label of the jar of Marshmallow Fluff jar in the 80s. You didn't need to worry about candy thermometers and getting just the right temperature with this recipe. It was simple and quick! It was the age of convenience...the microwave was used more than the oven in those days! (how do you like my "Miami Vice" colorway? Rad, right?!)
This recipe is from my childhood: a puffier chocolate chip cookie. It comes out of the oven more like a cupcake would look. I remember the mod designs of mom's cookbooks from my childhood and went with that vibe for this recipe.
This was created for the Crush Illustration Collective monthly challenge where our members create an illustration based on a theme.
