I have fries with mayo and peanut sauce and a 'kroket', a deep-fried ragout-filled bread-crumb covered thing on a bun with mustard, about once every 3 weeks.
And i don't feel guilty, because i love it too much.

If I don't feel like cooking, then it is pizza.... when I am looking for munchies on the fly, my favorite here lately (sounds kinda shi shi) is prochitto with goat cheese and crushed black pepper. For some reason, I can't get enough of it. I also like that coco lopez stuff to... can eat that right out of the can at 200000000 calories a spoon full! And those cinnamon rolls you bake in the oven or cherry turnovers fresh out of the oven..... holy cow I am in heaven!

Then I have lots of healthy things I eat too!

Since it's time to come clean, salami and peanuts. I guess I am not so into sugary stuff. I have also been reprimanded by my Dh for eating too much bread, even though the margarine was omega 3 healthy. I love bread any time of the day. DH goes for chocolate while we are watching a movie, and brings me a thick slice of buttered bread and some salami.

Urmaniac-what do you consider cassata filling- depending on which bakery we go to here cassata can be a custardy thing with peaches or cannoli filling ??I also adore saviatta cookies (also known as savolette) and gingalinas(sp).
Hmmm I think I need a trip to the bakery- first I have to find a good Italian one because we no longer have one in town
You guys are great!!!!
Vicki, Cassata filling is pretty close to the cannoli filling, made by well drained ricotta (preferably di pecora, made by sheep milk), creamed together with powdered sugar and chocolate drops, with a touch of "fiori di arancia" (orange flower water). It is layered between "pan di spagna", sponge cake, then coated by rich glaze made by almond paste. Our friend from Sicily mix in good quality pistacchi to get a nice green shade, too...
We haven't tried making it ourselves, but if you are interested I will send you a recipe... (I need to translate it though!) But I hope you can find a good one at the "Festa di San Giuseppe" (yea!! Giuseppe is Joseph in Italian!!)!!

* Any doughnut from my dad's grocery store ... when he knew I was coming home from college or the west coast, he would have his baker make these incredible chocolate raised bismarks that they filled with white cream - O M G ... talk about comfort food!
* mac & cheese ... homemade with real cream, butter and real cheddar
* popcorn ... I know what you're thinking - "popcorn isn't bad" - well, you haven't had my honies!
* white castle ... now that we're back in the midwest, we need a slider "fix" every now and again

I'm not much of a sweets eater, but I occasionally loe a custard filled dogunt with chocolate on top..Don't eat much fast foods, but love jack in the box tacos, in and out cheese burger and fires. But my favorite at home treat is just a fajita sized flour tortilla with melted pepper jack cheese on it. Somethimes I'll eat 2 for dinner...yummy...My daughter loves to make tuna or chicken salad and then scoop it up with big potato chips..I love potatoe chips and pepperoncini's together or chips and chocolate..That's it, the others I'm saving If I even think about them, I'll go rustle some up
