I am completely and utterly in love with Sicily! When I think of what to eat in Sicily, the list could get very long. The history of Sicily is complicated and totally unique. Sicily is Mediterranean through and through. This beautiful island was invaded for 25 centuries by the Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians, Arabs, North Africans, Byzantines, Goths, Spaniards, Persians, Bourbons. All of these different people left their mark on Sicily's archeology and most notably, in its cuisine.
Do you ever make something that is so simple and so flavorful and you become obsessed with it? That's what happened with these easy pickled cucumbers! They're so easy to make and you will be craving them as much as we do!

Summer is halfway over. Seriously, how did this happen so quickly?!? But before it ends, you must make this strawberry and amaretti cookie trifle. It is the dessert to take your mind off the heat and the one to make to impress a crowd of family or friends (or both)that are visiting for an impromptu dinner or lunch!
We have been enjoying strawberry season here for weeks!I had to bake these Strawberry and Ricotta Tarts-crostate di ricotta e fragole a couple of times as soon as I was baking with ripe spring berries!!

Could it possibly be summer here and all we want is soup these days? Specifically, we want this spring minestrone for lunch and dinner! Well, maybe not everyone in the Savoring Italy kitchen wants it all the time, but I sure do!! And it's not really summer here, but the cooler spring days have now turned into rainy and steamy summer-like days.
