She is the whisper of a particular memory
The smell of a lovely fragrance that always follows you
The cool hand on your brow when you are not well
She lives inside your laughter and is crystallized in every tear
She is the place you came from
Nothing on this earth will every separate you
No time, not space, or even death
You carry her inside you and can always count on her
She is with you in heart and soul to love and protect you
She is a beautiful woman, your mother and best friend

As the Northeast battles winter, the new crop of tomatoes is being lovingly nurtured in our greenhouses in Italy by an experienced team of growers. Each tray holds two hundred and forty tomato seedlings. They are approximately two inches high at this time.
Once they double in size and the weather and the soil warm up they will move on to the next step in the long process of becoming a “Rao’s” tomato.
I have included a picture of the babies in the nursery.
Stay tuned for the next installment of “What’s Happening in the Nursery?”
We often receive calls from our loyal fans asking about a product they love but can’t find in their local stores. I want to share some information with you regarding the retail store product selection. There are hundreds of products and a great deal of competition from other vendors who also want space for their products.
Rao’s has 43 items in our line and only a few make it to the stores due to limited space. Stores generally review the products they carry only once a year. Because of this not all of Rao’s products can make it to the shelves.
Last year Rao’s developed four new sauce products, Sensitive Marinara, Pizza sauce, Roasted Garlic and Four Cheese.
If you are unable to find a Rao’s item you like on your neighborhood store shelf, please call us at 1-800-homemade (1-800-466-3623), a customer service representative will be happy to help you. Or, you can always find our line of products online

This Thursday, millions of Americans will celebrate Thanksgiving with their families and friends. Due to Hurricane Sandy, many people are still without homes, family and friends. I ask that you open your home and hearts and consider volunteering, donating goods – as I am doing, money – clothing to help people who are still without food, shelter, heat and electricity. Please check out “Occupy Sandy” (a people powered community-relief response on the front lines) to find a location near you that could use your help in some way.
This holiday meal is just a twist of the wrist away!
I’m not a chef and I’m not a celebrity. You are not going to find the usual assortment of cooking tips on my blog. Between running a business, sourcing ingredients, maintaining quality control and my own personal commitments to my family and friends, I am looking for easy solutions. I am all about using our Rao’s Specialty Foods’ products in quick ways. When you start with a quality product, it is easy to adapt it for use in a variety of ways. Just twist your wrist, open a jar, and make your holiday entertaining simple and easier.
