If there is one recipe that sums up all of Sicily for me, it has to be pasta with wild fennel and sardines. Pasta con le sarde (pasta with sardines) is a dish so subtle, mysterious and harmonious.
Fried dough is common in many cultures. But in Italy, they fry dough for special occasions, especially during Christmas time. Pignolata are made in Sicily, Calabria and Umbria, so to keep these tiny delights regionally neutral, I will call them Italian honey balls.

Christmas time is my favorite time of the year! It's not about the presents for me, it's about the baking! Not only do we bake all different kinds of cookies, we also bake special breads, like this Pandolce Genovese.
