Recently, I have the impression that I’m running late. Indeed, it has been a while, that I didn’t feel so tired. I apologize for not having replied to your comments left on my last recipe.

I really enjoy sharing this recipe, mainly for three reasons:

  • this is the first time I’ve prepared ice cream;
  •  I’ve made it during my vacation in Italy, at my mother’s, because ricotta there is really much better than here in Canada;
  •  this week I will be with Angie, the “lady of the house” and the great Sylvia for  co-hosting the 23rd edition of the Fiesta Friday;

Christmas gifts always make me happy. They are even better when I‘m not expecting them. Especially when we talk about fine food surprises, that fruit and saffron jams and pure saffron. Oh what a great surprise! When my dear friend Olivia came in the bar where we had an appointment with a small paper bag in her hands, I realized immediately that in that bag there was something that I would madly love. Olivia and his companion Guido (almost future husband), like in the fairy tales, left the big city for the countryside around Siena. Continue reading

Pasta stuffed with ricotta and radicchio served on pumpkin cream

The indisputable advantage of pasta is the absence of limitations in the ways of preparing it. The outcome is always guaranteed. Try to go beyond the usual recipes (tomato, pesto, bolognese …) and use all your extravagant fantasies (not just in the kitchen ☺). You can trust pasta. If you make a mistake, indeed, if an ingredient is replaced by another one, if we do not have the right pot, the recipe will be different but perhaps it will be better. Practice makes perfect! Talking about being creative, the recipe’s original author needs to be quoted… the first time I prepared this recipe I was with my mother and her friend, Mrs. Margherita, who has long surprised me with her whimsical and delicious dishes.
