Above picture GINO SORBILLOW on left ..


Supposedly Gino Sorbillo is planning to open several locations, the rumor goes, one in TIMES SQUARE, one at 334 BOWERY, and one around UNION SQUARE .. At this moment we're not really sure, just that SORBILLO is definitely opening a SORBILLO PIZZA in New York, and rumor has it that the Bowery location may open in late Spring 2017 or in the Summer if they don't make the Spring time line ..

Food Maven MARTHA STEWART JINXED Pineda ???

Martha Stewart at Yankee's Home Opener 2017

at YANKEE STEADIUM , Bronx, NEW YORK

DID MARTHA JINX PINEDA ???



  Blame the bad taste in Yankees fans’ mouths on the chef. Martha Stewart had one of the best seats in the house for Michael Pineda’s near-perfect game in the Yankees’ 8-1 rout of the Rays on Monday afternoon, watching from behind home plate as the righty went unblemished into the seventh inning. Just three minutes before Pineda delivered the fatal pitch to Evan Longoria, who broke up the bid for perfection with a double to left field, the TV icon tweeted an update on Pineda’s invincibility.

This is the TWEET Many feel Jinxed Michael Pineda's bid for a PERFECT GAME
Jinxes aside, Stewart is no ignorant Yankees fan. When she was 10 and living outside New York City, Stewart babysat for the kids of Yankees legends Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra.
It seems they never taught her one of baseball’s cardinal rules: Let the perfect game do its own talking/tweeting.

Bellino on BRACIOLE





Screen Shot 2016-10-30 at 7.59.18 PM




BRACIOLE


  I still remember Mommy tying up the Braciole with cord as I watched fascinated by the act. Little did I realize how monumental these actions were in our world, the World of Italian-America, the food and the culture. Braciole is epic in our world, and Meatballs even more so, as well as Sausages, Pasta, Gravy, Espresso, and Cannoli, they are all quite dear to us. And little did I know then as a young boy of just five, I would write of these thing one day. I’d write of Spaghetti, Meatballs, Marinara, Mussels, Artichokes, Sausages, Sunday Sauce Gravy, and mommy making the Braciole and Meatbballs. She’d have the butcher cut her slices of beef top-round that she’d season with salt, pepper, Parsley, Pignoli, and Pecorino. Then she’d roll them up jelly-roll style and before tying them with a string she’d brown them in olive oil that would start the sauce she’d braise them in. I watched intently, and someday I’d make Braciole of my own. Mommy would make the Braciole and cook in the tomato sauce. More often than not she’d make a whole pot of Gravy (aka Sunday Sauce) with these Braciole, Sausages, and Meatballs. This Sunday Sauce Gravy was usually made on Sunday or possibly the night before and we’d have just Spaghetti & Meatballs from this pot of Gravy on Saturday night, saving the rest to eat the next day on Sunday with everything else; Maccheroni with Gravy, the Sausage, Meatballs, and Braciole. And what a wonderful day it would be eating Braciole, Gravy and all the rest.    Yes, I still remember Mommy making the Braciole she learned from her mom, my maternal grandmother Giuseppina Salemi Bellino who was born in Lercara Freddi, Sicily. Nonna Giuseppina learned to make Braciole and regional Sicilian dishes from her mom, my great-grandmother who was a Salemi, and that’s all I know of her. Yes, the Braciole recipe goes back to her and to Nonna Giuseppina, and then to my mother Lucia and then on to me and my sister Barbara, and brother Michael. That’s our story on Braciole. Basta!

WHITE RUSSIAN CUPCAKES White Russians Cupcakes? No Dude doesn’t make them. There’re Maudy’s little invention. Even though she doesn’t live with The Dude, she likes him quite a bit. Heck, he helped her conceive. So Maude felt like showing a little gratitude. Knowing how much Jeffrey (as Maude calls him) loves his Kahlua, Maude created this in honor of his Dudeness, “The Other Jeffrey Lebowski,” a.k.a. The Dude. “They’re right tasty,” as The Cowboy Stranger would say, and quite easy to make. Enjoy em!
