If anyone ever tells you that this Tuscan tomato sauce isn't authentic just tell them, "It's authentic in my kitchen Beotch." Chiles and raisins play spicy and sweet roles in these delicious meatballs. A lady from Italy taught me to make meatballs this way. I used to have dinner with her family at their home in New York on Sundays. Badda Bing Badda Boom. Yes I did. And, I reserve the right...I grew up in the Jerz.
When most people think of sushi they think of raw fish. The truth is that sushi isn't always raw and it isn't always fish. In this sushi recipe I wanted black trumpet and lobster mushrooms to take the spotlight. To add some interesting color and texture I soaked some daikon in beet juice and added some green scallions.
