My in-laws Italian Garden

I don’t have a green thumb. I’m being completely honest. Not much survives in my garden besides my herbs and my mango tree. The mango tree requires zero maintenance so I shouldn’t brag too much about it being as amazing as it is.


Il Mercato-Parte Uno (The Market)

Assaggiate le albicocche. Sono dolcissime. Taste the apricots. They are very sweet. And I did. I stood there in the light drizzle on a chilly summer afternoon tasting sweet apricots. The juice was dripping down my chin as I juggled my camera in my other hand. I wasn’t ready to taste a sample just yet.


Pan di Spagna con Marmellata di Lamponi {sponge cake with raspberry jam}

It is wonderful to be in Italy and have this abundance of amazing fresh fruit to eat every day. I can’t compare the flavor of these raspberries to any I’ve eaten back home. The berries are simply bursting with sweetness in every bite.

Strawberry and Ricotta Tarts {crostate di fragole e ricotta}

Savory Corn Rolls for Breaking Bread Society

You may think that I have the biggest sweet tooth on the planet. You stumble upon my blog and come across recipe after recipe of sweets. It may be difficult to imagine that I really am more of a savory food lover.
