Ciao Mamma... Goodbye Mom...

It is with a sad heart that we say goodbye to our sweet Mother.  Mom lived a long and wonderful life... 97 healthy years,  loved by everyone who met her and knew her.  We are greatful that she passed peacefully.  Surrounded by family,  she slowly slipped away to a better place.  We will miss her terribly,  but we know that we will be comforted by memories of her loving ways and  funny stories...Ciao Bella...

In Cucina... In The Kitchen...

A special place to be... Creating new recipes,  and making favorite dishes...Things like Olive Bread, Pasta alla Carbonara,  An Artichoke and Roasted Garlic Galette,  French Onion Soup,  and Pasta with Shrimp.  In the kitchen!  My happy place!

Feste... Celebrations...

Celebrations and keeping traditions alive is important to us.  Being with family,  celebrating the occasion...  whatever it may be.  Sharing a great meal and just being together is what it is all about.  Having Mom with us,  making the most of the time we have is precious to us all.  We count our blessings...

Pasticceria... Pastry...

Spending time in the kitchen is always a favorite pastime,  and making Pastry tops my list of favorite things to bake.  So flaky and decadent,  I love it so much,  Pie's Tarts, Cookies, Breads and Biscuits,  sweet or savory,   all of them... so good.

Fai Da Te... DIY...

It's always fun to make something pretty that doesn't take too much time or cost a lot of money.  I enjoyed making this Wreath using things that I have at home.  Simple,  uncontrived flower arrangements are my favorites... often Roses and Eucalyptus.  And when they are past their prime,  I hang them to dry,  so I almost always have some pretty dried flowers around for using in a Craft.  This is one of those times.  I love how this Wreath turned out,  and since I didn't spend anything to make it,  I don't worry that it won't last forever,  and it isn't something that I need to store ... which is in keeping with my wanting to stay uncluttered...
