Whoa. A year has already passed. Time really flies. I must confess that I had meant to write a very special post for the Culinary Taste’s first blogoversary (which, incidentally, is also my 4th wedding anniversary), but here I am, with a lot to say and very little time to do it. So I’ll try to be short. Read More
The garden is in full bloom. It’s Spring in the northern hemisphere and everywhere around flowers are blossoming and foliages are greener than ever.
Il giardino è in fiore. E’ primavera nell’emisfero nord e dappertutto i fiori stanno sbocciando e i fogliami sono più verdi che mai.

Over in the meadow, Near a pond in the sun Lived an old mother duck And her little duck one “Quack!” said the mother; “Quack!” said the one, And they quacked and were happy In the pond in the sun (from the rhyme Over in the Meadow) Ok, there’s no little duck involved in this post …
We’ve finally made it! Here’s the English version of Lapo’s book. Pappapoppa has become Yummytummy and Mamma Mu, well, is just Mommy-Moo.
I want to thank all of my foodie friends for their contribution and their help with the names for the English version, especially Raymund from Ang Sarap (yes, we used two of your names, Cheddar the Mouse and Hopper the Rabbit).
I hope you enjoy it! Let me know if you like it, though you can preview only few pages on blurb.com.
At last. We made it. Me and my friend Christina, I mean. We managed to finish the book for Lapo’s first birthday (yuppie!!!). The little calf Pappapoppa and his friend the baby chick Giosuè have finally come to life. Come to life but not come to our hands, yet, because we placed the order yesterday on blurb.com and we’re waiting for it to arrive. In time for Lapo’s birthday, of course (May, 5). Yes, I know that Lapo won’t be able to read it for – well, some years – but we do hope to give him for his birthday all the same.
Some of you may think I’ve vanished from the blogosphere, some others that I quitted cooking for ever: well, none of the kind. I’ve just been busy. With life. What does that mean? Oh, nothing special. The fact is that after having spent three months at my parents’, I’ve just come back home. My home. Well, with hubs and baby, of course. For those who still don’t know, I broke my leg and we all had to move to my parents’ for a while. That is till I was perfectly recovered. Not that I’m perfectly recovered now, but I dare say I’m ok. I walk!
I thought it was time to have a break from food and recipes to show you something I’m really proud of. This is a pretty odd post for the Culinary Taste, I know, but it holds a special place in my heart. In May my baby will turn 1! Yes, a year’s almost gone (already?!) and I wanted to celebrate this event with something unique.
