  1. Take a firm plum tomato (firm is key, can’t be too ripe and mushy), and cut it in half length wise. Scoop out the seeds and membrane so you are left with a boat. Combine some good quality tuna with some homemade mayo (recipe below) and dash of pepper and then add your tuna to your tomato boats. Top with a sliver of anchovy and a couple of capers.

You might think growing up in a small town in Texas wouldn’t prepare you to live the Italian lifestyle. But in many ways — the family values, the small town culture, the love of food — is very similar to what you’ll find in Italian culture. In fact, I expect it’s pretty universal. Having been married to an Italian for 20 years, it’s been fun to learn and explore the rich Italian culture and share it with you.
