Cooking with Gina: Photo Album

Ciao Italia 2302 Torta Margharita

I went on Ciao Italia, a cooking show with Mary Ann Esposito to make a Margherita cake with coffee cream filling.

When I was growing up, my grandfather on my mom's side lived in our house in Greenville. He was a chef. On Sunday afternoons, my brother, sister and I spent hours with him learning how to make all different kinds of food in our downstairs kitchen while listening to Italian radio. We laughed a lot and ate some truly amazing food.
In that tradition, I make sure that every week, Tommy, Ceci, Andy and I set aside some time to cook Sunday supper and eat together as a family. Our household motto is faith, family and food. Check out some photos below of what we've made recently:
