Today’s recipe is inspired by the month of October.  I know I say this often, but to me getting used to what I still consider “reversed” seasons is almost impossible. So October is still autumn to me, even though down here we are in the middle of spring!  That is why, I decided that combining…

GRANITA AL CAFFÈ CON PANNA

I am very excited about sharing today’s Regional Italian recipe.  You can easily guess that this week’s region is Sicily… granite (plural for granita) are the quintessential Sicilian breakfast, especially in summer.  There are so many flavours, it is hard to choose only one when you sit at one of the local cafés… my favourite…
