In a eye blink May is here, we are having five days of rest, hubby is away with some friends and I have planned the most perfect time inviting some friends with their son for dinner ( Irish dinner, all the recipes taken from the books of Paul Hollywood: I have almost all of them, I did many of the dishes and they always came out great), then having a Friday’s night out with my best friend testing some cocktail bars and a restaurant.

All will end with a big rugby tournament on sunday.

Muscovado bundt cake with hazelnut meal and orange juice: have you ever hear of a similar mix of ingredients?

I didn’t since I read a post on Facebook of a fellow blogger.

I would like to share the post but it’s in Italian only; anyway I want to tell you about this Italian bloggers’ project called KEEP CALM AND WHAT’S FOR DINNER? that brings you every month many recipes you can easily make in about 30 minutes.

Still posting recipes from archive, not yet back to my normal cooking & shooting routine but I’m trying hard: I don’t want to let it go, this blog is far way too important to me!

I am planning a weiss beer orange marmelade, I’m not sure how it is turning out as I don’t like marmelade a lot: I’m waiting for hubby to have an expert review, if it will be good you’ll see that on my pages soon! 🙂

Now it’s time for a beeramisù, a tiramisù ( Italian dessert worldwide famous) made with beer.

Back to the usual routine after the big flu; quite happy because I truly hate being forced to rest.

Not my cup of tea, really: lying on the sofa or in the bed I start thinking about all the things I should do, all the things I could clean and tidy up.

Now that I’m ok I had the chance to attend the Birra Amarcord‘s  20 years of activity party, a great party with important chefs, pizza makers and, of course, gallons of Amarcord beer.

I think I ate the best pizza of my life there, made by Piccola Piedigrotta: if you are around Reggio Emilia book a table and taste it, trust me!

My son called in sick two weeks ago, hubby got sick the Whole last week and now…

Guess who is 102°F and more now?

Yes, you’re right, it’s my glory moment.

I spent two days in bed, with an awful headache I couldn’t even stand up and it’s pretty unusual for me.

Luckly today I’ m ok enough to stay on the sofa so I give a try with blog and posts.

I have some recipes awaiting for your attention! 🙂
