St. Lucy Saffron Buns



I baked these gorgeous Saffron Buns for St. Lucy Day, which is tomorrow! Saint Lucia (or Saint Lucy) is a symbol of hope and light in dark times.

Nocatole-Calabrian Sweet Fritters

This is my Italian mother-in-law's very special recipe for Nocatole-Calabrian Sweet Fritters! It is a typical sweet fried dough from Calabria, Italy that is sprinkled with confectioner's sugar. Italian donuts that are enjoyed on special occasions or just because! #donuts #christmas #nocatole #calabria #italianrecipe #italianfood #baking

My in-laws and some other family members were here from Italy for a month. Most days with my mother-in-law, we discussed what to make for lunch or dinner and talked about food in general. Just before Memorial Day, she decided to make these nocatole (Calabrian sweet fritters).

Cranberry Almond Biscotti


The holidays are the perfect time to get out your favorite cookie recipes and even try something new! We bake biscotti all through December at least once a week. These Cranberry Almond Biscotti are delicious and what you should add to your Christmas cookie tray.

Bundt Panettone



Eating panettone is something I remember since I was a little girl celebrating Christmas in Sicily and here in Florida. Christmas just wouldn’t seem the same without a slice of fluffy panettone. I know not every child loves the candied fruits in it. I was one that did and looked for slices with extra pieces of the citrus bites. This panettone Bundt recipe is so easy to make and loved by all!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls



Make the fall season extra special with these delicious Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls. Classic cinnamon rolls get a fall twist with pumpkin puree and fall spices. 

Vegan Apple-Cranberry Crisp

A perfect vegan fall dessert made with tart cranberries and sweet apples. Topped with the most amazing vegan crumble!! #vegan #baking #applecrisp

I really enjoy baking vegan recipes. I have a family member that is dairy free, so there are often dairy free or totally vegan recipes happening in my cucina. This Vegan Maple Apple-Cranberry Crumble is the perfect fall dessert.
