RHONJ star Kathy Wakile took to her blog to talk about the past episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Kathy says she never said the word “recipe” when telling Teresa that they were her mother’s. She also share’s her mother’s cookie recipe! Check it out after the jump,
“When we finally arrived at Camping World, we were like kids in a candy store. For me, all at once I felt like I was getting to be part of The Brady Bunch goes to the Grand Canyon. (Well sort of.) I always wanted to do that as I watched them when I was growing up. It was clear that some of us did not have a clue as to what we were even looking for, however it did set the tone for some fun and hopefully good times in the days ahead. ??Our RVs were really fantastic, and aside from having to figure out what I was going to do about Rich’s, um, wardrobe malfunction (AWKWARD!), we made due with our comfortable but tight living arrangements, and in no time at all we were settled in. Greg and Vito were great company, but I must admit that I felt like the den mother!
I was so happy that Teresa came in to share her feelings with me about what she thought I said to her when Rich and I went to show our support at her book signing. I have to admit though, I was starting to second guess myself and feel bad. I couldn’t remember if I said they were my mom’s recipes. I just couldn’t remember. I certainly didn’t want to fight with her over cookies. Thankfully after watching this week’s episode I’m happy to see that my memory did in fact serve me correctly. I’m glad we are all in agreement that I never said the word “recipe.”
My mom always shared her recipes with all of her sister-in-laws. That’s what families do; that’s what I do. I’m always on the phone with my friends and family playing recipe swap.
In celebration of putting this silliness of Cookie Gate to rest, I went through some of my mom’s recipes and I’m happy to send this one out to everyone. After all, family recipes are for everyone to share and enjoy. Below is a picture of my mom’s sprinkle cookie recipe.
I just love the way she spells all the ingredients. Like a true Italian, she spells the way the words are spoken. She’s so cute. Since my mom always cooked for her large family of seven and for everyone else that would pop in, this recipe makes a very large batch. You can easily cut the recipe in half if you like.”
Technically she didn’t say “recipe” but she did say “those are my mother’s.” That means “those are my mother’s recipe!” Regardless she shouldn’t have said anything but she did and it’s over with..
