Eggplant Lasagne {Lasagne di Melanzane}

I swear this isn’t as sinful as it looks!
I have an issue with lasagne. I could eat it for dinner every, single day. I think it’s one of the most perfect meals to be made in a casserole dish. 


Banana Upside-Down Tart

I feel giddy looking at this photo of caramel oozing over the side of the tart on this top photo. My eyes glaze over in pleasure when I remember how gorgeous this was when I flipped it out of the pan. 

Meyer Lemon Bread with Blood Orange Glaze

I told you in a very recent post I have a slight Pinterest problem. The kind of problem where once I click on the link, my eyes cannot get peeled from the computer screen. The minutes slip by as I click link after link of beautiful food and photography.

Vegan Overnight Yeast Waffles

Mardi Gras. Fat Tuesday. Shrove Tuesday. Pancake Tuesday. Pancake Tuesday? Yes, Pancake Tuesday.


Vegan Apple Ring Cake {ciambella di mele}

I was doing really well for a while. I was eating mostly veggies and healthy grains at lunch. I was avoiding chocolate desserts because I simply can’t resist them when they’re around. 


Purple Cauliflower and Potato Gratin

It's been years since I've seen a secret note neatly folded up with an important message. I remember passing notes back in elementary school and sometimes a note would say: Do you like me? Check yes or no.

Chocolate and Chestnut Cake {torta al cioccolato e le castagne}

My mom just came by for a visit and we’re talking about Valentine’s Day and Whitney Houston. We’re talking about how she stayed up late last night and watched every minute of the Grammys. I fell asleep after Coldplay and Rihanna.

Katherine Hepburn’s Brownies

Could I possibly find another brownie recipe that I desperately need to try? I have a whole file with brownie recipes dating back to when I was first clipping recipes back when I was in middle school.

Mini Nutella Crostata {Crostatine alla Nutella}

Did you know that World Nutella Day was on February 5th? A whole day dedicated to desserts made with wonderful Nutella.

Mixed Mushroom and Cherry Tomato Risotto {Risotto con i Funghi e Pomodorini}

It was time for a another Vintage Recipe Swap that is put together by Christianna at Burgwell General Store. We are on our second book and Christianna found this gem, The Second Ford Treasury of Favorite Recipes from Famous Eating Places.


Chocolate Chip Ring Cake {Ciambellone con Gocce di Cioccolato}

Chocolate Chip Ring Cake-Ciambellone con Gocce di Cioccolato-4
February is the month of love and decadent chocolate desserts. I decided after trying to contain my love of chocolate to gently ease myself back into the tangled web it weaves. An Italian ciambella with chocolate chips was a seemingly nice and safe start.

Kumquat Poppy Seed Scones

I’m all about breakfast. I’m all about getting that first meal of the day in and there is no way I will skip it. I shake my head in wonderment when I hear someone say they didn’t eat until lunch.
