Turkey meatballs
There is something wonderful about the classic Sicilian combination of sweet dried currants or raisins, creamy and nutty toasted pine nuts, and fresh greens, like kale or spinach, that always makes my mouth water. In the summer, when the garden is brimming with fresh Swiss chard, I am always sautéing it with raisins and pine nuts. Taking inspiration from my favorite summer dish, I've taken these same flavors and combined them with lean ground turkey in these Sicilian-style meatballs for a different twist on a dinnertime favorite. They are perfect to serve alone, as an appetizer, or atop a bowl of pasta tossed in a creamy goat cheese sauce. If you don't have Swiss chard, you can also substitute in baby spinach, kale, or even herbs like parsley or cilantro.  Click here to see Recipe SWAT Team: Meatballs.

Sicilian Cannolis
Cannoli are pretty essential to Italians, especially during the holidays. They're a must-have along with struffoli at Christmas, grain pies at Easter, and cassata cake and profiteroles on New Year's. They can be large, they can be small, they can be chocolate-dipped, and even chocolate-filled. This recipe, however, is as classic as they come.  My father used to say that my uncle wasn't coordinated because all he did at the bakery was make cannoli cream. It's a big fail for my uncle, but a plus for novice cannoli makers because it's simple!  For a large party, it's best to purchase the shells. They're not hard to find (try your local pastry shop or salumeria) and come in large and mini size. Click here to see A Sweet Tooth's Dream: 8 Fantastic Dessert Recipes.
