It occurs to me on a regular basis that we in the fishing world take a few things for granted. I have lived in Jacksonville almost my entire adult life and have been a fisherman since the ripe old age of eight years old. With that being said, I have had the opportunity to see many a marine critter that most have not. Some you would consider normal and others many would find remarkable — even downright monsters of the deep.

As I was about to enter the library at the Senior Center in Palm Valley, someone said, “Come join us. We’re about to learn how to make soap.” Mary Vastola, the owner of The Ponte Vedra Soap Shoppe, was teaching. You use molds —- it’s a melt-and-pour process. I figured based on my luck with un-molding Jell-O, with half the Jell-O sticking to the bottom of the mold, I’d probably flunk soap making.

Easter is a time of celebration, family and food. This dish is one of my family’s favorite Easter traditions. The recipe has been handed down from generation to generation and each family member has added his or her own special touches. This is my mom’s version, which is the best. Of course, I might be a little biased. Buon appetito!
