This easy smoked salmon appetizer is not quite a recipe, but a good (in both senses) idea. It is pretty simple and quick to prepare and pleases all tastes.
I prepared it for the first time this Summertime as a no time snack (just left it into the fridge) – needless to say there were no leftovers. More
This Brazilian cinnamon french toast has been present in all my Christmas lunches and dinners since now. It has always been my mother’s favorite Christmas candy and usually she is the one who prepares it.
The recipe may lightly vary between different families – and it is just a reason to compare one to another like “mine is softer”, “mine is sweeter”, and so on .
This easy meatloaf recipe was the one I served in my small spaghetti house in Rio, during the two years of my marriage “pause”.
During the couple of years I lived there again, I decided to do something related to the real Italian food. The one I happened to know well living in Italy…and that is often so different from what’s served abroad. More
This delectable jam tart recipe is definitely my favorite one. I’ve tried many recipes to reach what I want from a jam tart and finally got it.
This jam tart is extremely tasty, not too fat nor too floury. It is simply… delicious. More
I admit I had never seen a gingerbread house recipe since about a month ago, when I watched an episode of Australian Masterchef TV series when two competitors had to bake and build a gingerbread house following a famous pastry chef recipe.
(By the way, I loved the harmony that comes from this version of Masterchef. Australians are cute amongst competitors and there’s such a professional and pleasant atmosphere comparing to US and Italian series) More
I prepared this potato focaccia recipe yesterday, it was good just as the ones you buy in Italian bakery shops during the morning.
When I came to live in Italy, I used to live in a very small city and shop for groceries in a small aunt’s local market. It was about a block from my house, and in between there was the bakery shop (and ovens where bread was baked) of my husband’s uncle. Well…if I happened to go shopping during the morning, around 11:00am, I always get back home with a pizza bianca, just like this one you see here. More
I was postponing this how to make pasta post for no special reason. But yesterday I just felt like it was time to make pasta and post about it for a special reason.
I live in Olbia, Sardinia, a city that was devastated by an inundation last Monday. I was lucky enough to live in a zone that was not touched, but there were 16 deaths and there are a lot of people who lost their houses and belongings. It is a huge blow. I’ve been helping friends who had 1,5m of water invading their house. The water power was so strong that put down the exterior wall and the double door at their entrance. More
This chicken recipe was the “report card” dish for my children for many years. They love it and when they were teens it was their favorite dish. So, each time we had to commemorate something like good report cards (they had always great ones), this was the lunch menu, together with white rice.
You can prepare it with leftover chicken, or buy a roasted chicken to make it quicker, as I always do (otherwise you should add the time for roasting the chicken). More
I prepared this glass biscuit recipe thinking about Christmas, even if I end up loving the heart shaped one more than the star shaped biscuit.
It is a simple biscuit recipe…with a great effect, in my opinion. A really cute idea not only for Christmas, but anytime you want to present or surprise someone. More
