Tomorrow is a very special day for all Italian children, as we celebrate the day of the Epiphany and the visitation of the Biblical Magi to the baby Jesus.  The night between January 5th and 6th is the night of Befana, who, in Italian folklore, is “an old woman who fills children’s stockings with candy...

I grew up in a family of artichoke lovers.  Every week, in winter, my parents would buy plenty of artichokes at the local market and we would eat them in all sorts of ways.  I have already shared a few recipes and ideas on what to do with this delicious vegetable, and today I am...

Chocolate Cake with Zabaione
Hello and Happy New Year everyone!  This is my first post for 2015 and to celebrate the beginning of a new year, it just had to be a dessert… and a chocolate one at that.  This is a very easy and moist chocolate cake, made with very little flour.  It is not too sweet, and...

Cinnamon Apple Chips
During the Christmas holidays, we all tend to eat a lot.  And we also snack a lot more than during other times of the year.  I find it easier to snack on healthy food and fresh fruits here in Australia, as it is summer, but for all my friends and family up in the Northern...

Pandoro
Christmas in Italy means Panettone or Pandoro.  There’s a huge rivalry between the supporters of these two traditional sweets and very often people who like one will tell you they dislike the other.  As a child, I was definitely on the Pandoro’s team.  Even though I have always liked sultanas (I used to eat them...

Lime and Macadamia Nut Bark
Can you believe that I had never made chocolate bark before??  I know, so weird, especially considering that I am a chocoholic!  In my defence, I must say that it is not something we usually make in Italy.  For Christmas, we mostly make nougat.  But bark is so good, so versatile and, let’s face it,...

Lavender Sugar
I love the smell and taste of lavender.  It reminds me of when I used to travel to the south of France with my parents.  One of our favourite spots was Aix-en-Provence.  We always stopped at the morning markets to buy beautiful bunches of lavender, hand-made lavender soap and all sorts of lavender perfumed items. ...

I saw these on the internet while searching for ideas for my 5 year old’s kitten themed birthday party.  Apparently these Kitty Cat Doughnuts are quite popular in Japan.  So I set on a mission to replicate them at home.  I have a little confession to make.  I don’t like doughnuts.  Or so I thought. ...
