Pico de gallo.

Pico de gallo.

Not dead, just on a stiff diet.

Sad enough I am eating fruit, veggies, yogurt and white meat since the end of lock- down so I had nothing to post on this blog!

I spent the last months trying to get back to the usual routine: work, summer camp for my son, his rugby practices ( no tackling, so basically nothing to have fun with according to children).

As often when the daylight starts to stay longer I have problems falling asleep: at midnight I could easily do any kind of chore or spend time with mobile or tv…

Tonight, not knowing what to do while all the other family members were asleep, I checked the WordPress app for mobile; I have it on my phone but never really looked at it, I dedided to give a try writing a post.

I can say what you can do from mobile is just a small part of what I usually do to complete a post: no way to insert recipe box, no way to write the recipe but at least I can write the post and I can feel productive even when I am in bed. πŸ˜€

Hi all!

As you see I’m deep into cooking experiments at the moment, so deep I started again with my usual recipe exchange with a close circle of food blogger friends.

Blogs are in italian only so I don’t bother share links you cannot read but I can tell I had to dig deep into the blog I was paired with because it has hundreds, and I mean HUNDREDS of recipes.

Some are local, some come from far, far away: I decided to stay in the middle and I choosed a recipe from Malta, the Bigilla.

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.
