First, I would like to thank everyone who has been so supportive and encouraging of Morta Di Fame during the past year. Whether I invited myself over for dinner or you are half way around the world laughing at Nonna stories, you get it, which means I am not the only crazy one around here and that feels fantastic. I must especially thank Rocco and Nonna for letting me exploit their insanity and for never stopping loving and cooking for me. There isn't a moment when I don't love working on this blog.

Goals for Morta Di Fame in 2010: more Sicilian craziness, a Supper Club in Queens (at Nonna's perhaps), non-stop laughter and food.

Now, let's remember why this year was awesome:
