With a name like “Ciancio” you can probably guess that Italian recipes are what I grew up with.
Italian cooking recipes include so many of my favorites, and some of them are here.
This page will continue to grow as I add more wonderful recipes.
Not just Italian recipes either. I’ll be adding lots of healthy Mediterranean recipes from all parts of that wonderful region.
The Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest diets we can eat. It is full of healthy oils, lemon juice, spices, legumes and fish.
In this section of the site, you will find delicious Italian pasta recipes, spaghetti sauce recipes and other wonderful Italian and Middle Eastern recipes and treats.
You can see that Italian cooking recipes can be very healthy too.
Pick your favorites or go for something new. Either way, enjoy!
