Delizia al limone
a very special dessert. i've just served this up for a table of ladies which followed on from a dish of prawn ravioli, served upon a tomato and courgette broth. both were very well recieved, not a scrap left, which pleases me greatly. simple food cooked with care but packed with flavour, it's what my food is all about. there's nothing better than when your guests leave with a big smile, with plans already underway to come back for more.
this dessert is very special as it was my wedding cake. it's a cake that can be found along the amalfi coast, using the regions wonderful lemons. i was married up amongst those lemon groves in minori (where @gennarocontaldo is from) at a family ran augroturismo called villa maria. 🍋
no doubt i'll now spend the rest of the day dreaming about my next visit! it's my favourite place in the whole world. my dream is to live in the area one day, writing recipes - sat out upon a balcony over looking the sea, eating the best pasta, the freshest ingredients and sipping beautiful homemade wines all grown and made at the neighbouring agroturismos. daily exercise would be a walk up and along the old steps and paths from amalfi to ravello, maiori to atrani.....heaven. 🍋
happy h**p day folks. may your dreams be big and your day dreams magicial....... if nothing else, it keeps us going 💛💙
#fbf to this past weekend when i made these cookies that are apparently insta-famous by @alisoneroman via @smittenkitchen . they were a labor of love, but destroyed when i brought them to the office. guess i need to make more. thinking about the possibilities for minor flavor changes! these, however, are salted butter chocolate chunk shortbread. 🙌🏻 i’ve been on a baking spree ever since a *cough* special project ended at work. #ilovetoeat#ilovetobake#cookies
Bakery wonderland! december goodness with apple-cranberry danish, candied meyer lemon brioche and pistachio croissants! serving today and all weekend. hope it makes you as happy as it’s made us to create them!
My first time making fudge and it came out very well. i definitely learned the size of the p*t matters a lot. 😂 the hubby is in heaven.
Wishing everyone positive and calm weekend! i wish for myself one, too! life goes on even if we keep being negative. so why not use our time on being grateful and finding positivity in everything, even if it seems difficult ✨ #trainingmybrain to #positivity
