Una Torta Per Giulietta...A Cake For Giulietta ...

Helping with Giu Giu's Birthday party was so fun.  Unicorns and rainbows seem to be popular with little girls,  and that is what this sweet little girl wanted.  When Giu Giu asked me to make her cake,  of course I couldn't resist... I made her exactly what she asked for...

Pensando a Franca... Thinking of Frances...

I am thinking of my lovely sister Frances today,  so far away in Italy,  yet just a phone call away.  We had a little conversation about her Birthday celebration today,  and she told me about what she was cooking. We share a love for cooking and she is always making something wonderful.  I told her that we would be calling her again later,  when Mom is awake,  so that hopefully Mom can wish her a Happy Birthday.  I wish we could be all together today... I would make her a cake,  which I have only been able to do once,  when she was here a few years ago...  She will be in my thoughts today ,  and certainly while I am cooking dinner...

Piaceri Autunnali... Autumn Pleasures..

It's that time of year... everyone thinking of Pumpkins and Squashes,  Colorful Leaves,   and cool breezes.  Here we can only dream of cool breezes and brightly hued trees... it has been a very hot early Fall,  but happily,  it cooled of just in time for Halloween. I'm in full Autumn mode in the kitchen,  making old favorites,  and thinking up new seasonal recipes...

Ciao Autunno...Hello Fall...

My yearly tradition of baking a Pie on the first day of Autumn continues... Sometimes Apple,  sometimes Pumpkin... This time it's Pumpkin...

Autunno... Autumn...

As Fall rapidly approaches,  I find myself with  thoughts of Autumn favorites coming from my kitchen... and Autumn colors warming our home.  I am easing in  touches of orange and gold to bring in the season and adding pumpkins all around.  If my pumpkin plants let me down ( again) I will just have to buy them...or get them from Paul and Edy's gorgeous garden,  Quail Rock Farms... fine by me...

Quasi Autunno... Almost Autumn...

It's been a hot and humid summer and I am ready for it to be over and enjoy some cooler Fall weather.  The days are getting just a bit shorter and there are very faint signs of Fall in the air.  Looking forward to seasonal cooking and enjoying some Autumn Favorites from the kitchen. In the meantime,  I don't want to rush things but I will begin doing some seasonal decorating and getting ready for a visit from Angelo and Pina.
