Za'leti, typical Venetian cornmeal cookies.


I spent a lot of time baking lately.

I will never be able to make all the baking recipes I have on my many, many books but at least I can give a try with the recipes I find on cookbooks I receive from lovely friends! πŸ™‚

I have a dear friend near Venice, she is called Sara and she is such a strong but delicate human being; few years ago she sent me an illustrated cookbook about Venetian cooking, filled with traditional recipes and anecdotes and watercolors designs, I really wanted to do something taken from this book.

So I started cooking again, it seems.

It’s true and only now I feel how much I missed it.

How long since the last time I tried a recipe from one of my books?

Don’t even remember but here we are with a new entry from a book called ” Una merenda a New York” ( a snack in New York) by Marc Grossman.

Still alive and kicking, even if you won’t say that after all this time.

Now I am in the new home, the new home is beautiful and lovely and I have so much to do I cannot rest in it enjoying it. πŸ™

No complaints, that’s life and I am fully living it but I’m looking forward to a little time for myself only.

I had to know my new appliances, working with a new oven is an adventure.

I baked and cooked almost only tested things to I had the chance to compare and adjust.

I’m back again, not so long from the last time after all!

We are still working on the new house or, at least, bricklayers are; this means a lot of time taking measures, discussing, planning, changing plans.

We would like to move before Christmas, I think, instead, we will pass Christmas moving.

Anyway I’m here again with, guess what?

A recipe!

Almost unusual for this blog, uh? πŸ™‚
