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! 🙂

Chocolate lava cakes.


Hearts, red roses, teddy bears in every shop’s window?

Have you seen them?

Yes, it’s that moment of the year again, St. Valentine is coming, brace yourself!

St. Valentine is not a day I use to celebrate, I’m not interested in flowers, presents, jewels…

If hubby wants me happy he can bring me out to try a new restaurant but he can do it always, not only on 14 February! 😀

Milk brûlé, typical dessert from Romagna.

Milk brûlé, typical dessert from Romagna.

You all know recipes like crème brûlée or creme caramel or panna cotta.

The pudding I’m introducing you today is a close relative of those dessert but it’s only made of yolks, sugar and fresh whole milk.

It’s a very old (can I say ancient?) recipe from Romagna region, it has a long tradition among farmer’s families but it makes a wonderful appearance on the most lushious tables, expecially for Christmas.
