Good heavens! I almost don’t know where to tell you to start on this site, because there are so many wonderful things to check out.
So I think I’ll start you out with what I found the most exciting: the Mangia Italiano Spring 2010 Recipe Contest. Just scroll down the page and check out the details in the featured section on the main page, or you can click Contest 2010 button on the side menu. You’ll find all the official rules and such there, as well as the submission form.
If you glance at the side menu, you’ll see that there are a ton of different recipe categories. They are: Appetizer, Soup, Salad, Bread, Vegetable, Pasta, Poultry, Beef, Pork, Veal, Lamb, Seafood, and Pizza. What I like about that is that you can easily pick what type of food you want to make and not have to weed through other distracting recipes that look like something you’d want to make. Ok, I might have a problem at recipe sites and get distracted by other delicious delights.
After browsing the recipe sections you’ll find sections on Italian Ingredients: cheese, wine, coffees, desserts, and more. Another section I really liked was the Cooking for Kids section where you will find great recipes that you can get your kids involved in helping you make, as well as, great tips on how to get your kids to eat a better variety of foods and what they can do in the kitchen.
This is an excellent food site. I bookmarked, and I bet you will too!
