My week is jam-packed with my Doctor Who Christmas Special Countdown on Suvudu.com, so it’s very glad tidings that friend and fellow foodie Annamarie Gatto is here to whet your holiday appetite with something easy and delicious.

I love the holidays.
There. I’ve said it.
From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, ever since I was a little girl, the holidays meant two things that are incredibly important to me: Family and Food.
Growing up in an Italian family on Long Island, there was always plenty of both. You see, in Italian families, we just don’t do the American traditions in regards to holiday meals. Oh sure, we have the Thanksgiving turkey with all the “traditional” trimmings but preceding that glorious feast is my Uncle Eddie’s Onion Soup (now made by my Dad), my antipasti salad, stuffed artichokes and, of course, my Mom’s lasagna with home made meatballs and sausage. And don’t even get me started on my sister’s desserts!
