It's Spring in Italy and that can only mean one thing: allergies, yes but that's not it. Sunshine from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. no, that's not it either. It's recess-for everyone.
In Italy any excuse not to work or go to school is a good one and in the Spring between invented holidays and union…

You say "potato". I say "patata".
I read a review about someone who made a recipe calling for one pre-packaged cake mix but they no longer see that size at the store so the reviewer discussed head scratching math to figure out how to make the recipe with the smaller sizes available on the market

WARNING: This is a rant and nothing more. No real info will be shared here other than "beware of balsamic vinegar stains... and idiots".
Before meeting my husband I rarely used balsamic vinegar. At home I used apple cider vinegar or wine vinegar. I had been traumatised by it once and couldn't…

I helped my husband out the door at 4 a.m. this morning. The kids are off on their Spring Breaks and find myself alone in the house.
When I'm alone my kids feel badly for me. Meg says "awwww mom, aren't a little sad to be alone?". Eloise always asks if I'll be scared. Ashley and I just look at…

I arrived in Italy straight from Texas in 1996. The only two words in Italian that I knew were "pizza" and "spaghetti".
When people ask me how long I've been here I have to count and surprise myself every single time as the years move on. It's not only that it seems like yesterday and time…

In 2005 I went to Florence for a 2-day work thing. It was my first time in that wonderful city. I had seen pictures, met some natives. I had even watched films about Tuscany and knew about the food and its people, but had never been personally acquainted
with its cuisine.
The owner of the…

I should have married and divorced a plumber. I'd be rich. I just paid the last of a series of instalments to pay off my plumber. He's half way to Maldives for a month or two thanks to my mishap.
But really, this is a blog post for those of you who bake gluten free or know someone who does.…

All of a sudden one day my kids grew up. I dusted off my camera recently trying my hand at real photography instead of iPhoning it and found some pictures on the sd card of my kids when they were little.
If I could, I would upload a photo of the four of us making pizza about 10 years ago. But…

Someone on the buzz the other day asked if you can make gluten free panko out of gf bread. I responded "yes" and didn't have time to elaborate. In N. America or where you can find Chex (R) cereals, the habit is to crush those and call it panko. I imagine it is because they are…

For those of you who sent prayers, thoughts, wishes and general good vibes my way for my dad's recovery, thank you.
His health has deteriorated in the last months and finally after much tribulation his doctors performed surgery on him on the 17th. He's been through a lot. Not to bore you all…
