Crostata Autunnale-Autumn Crostata for Kelly Confidential

I have a thing for crostatas. I especially love the ease of a free-formed crostata. Unpretentious and rustic, it is one of my favorite Italian deserts. I make them very often.

Streusel Topped Plum Muffins {Taste of Home Baking Book Giveaway!}

Holy cow! When I look at this image again, I’m totally ready to make another batch of these beauties! I’m not a big muffin baker, and not for a lack of interest. I mean, I am a HUGE fan of savory or sweet muffins. 

Penne con Lenticchie Rosse e Zucchine-Penne with Red Lentils and Zucchini

It’s been raining for three days. Luca told me about the “tomado” warning at school today. This is fall in Florida. There aren’t many pretty cool days. We aren’t going on any apple picking trips or pumpkin picking. For sure you can’t find any hay rides.


Apple Pie Coffee Cake

When Abby Dodge put the word out on twitter that this month’s #baketogether would be a coffee cake, I knew mine would have apples in it. My dad had been hinting the last few times he came to visit that he would love another apple pie.

Pissaladière-French Fridays with Dorie

This is my new favorite recipe. It’s not for you fabulous singles that are about to embark on a romantic first date. It’s topped with an abundance of delicious slightly caramelized onions and anchovies. Oh! Let’s not forget the olives! I suggest you make this for your date, hence solving the bad breath issue.

Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodles

It was a blustery, rainy weekend. I was too lazy to check the weather report online to see what exactly was going on. The winds were gusting at around 40 MPH. I was completely unmotivated to drag the kids around in that kind of weather. 

B is for Brownies! Vegan Brownies

I love brownies. I don’t discriminate. I will try brownies that are rich and dense. Fluffy and cake like. I don’t believe there exists a brownie that I would say no to. That’s why I never make them.


Teresa’s Vegan Apple Cake–Apple Bloghop

Photographing food has been more challenging than I imagined it would be. I feel I’ve made some progress this past year; especially considering the occasional obstacles I sometimes have to contend with.
