Move Over, Martha…

There’s a new chef in town!

Yep. That’s me! Those of you who have been around awhile know I’m not an overly confident cook (see #91).

However, I sense a change in the air.

I don’t know how, given my seemingly busy schedule, but I have much more time to cook in Italy. And, little by little, it’s paying off.

Continuing my share the love theme from last week, I made our B&B’full of hungry working Napoletani muffins for Valentine’s Day.

Oh, but silly me, I never CAN just follow a recipe. (Which my mother claims to be the source of my epicurean difficulties. Ahhh, but I digress…) So, I, uhm, borrowed a Blood Orange Buttercream Glaze from my friend to drizzle on top (and I added nuts)!


My muffin recipe made so much batter, I had enough left over for a whole cake!

Seriously, I don’t think Betty and Sara have anything to worry about just yet. But, competition might be on the horizon.
I’m just saying…

    1- What do you about modest Islamic Hijab? a divine order that is given to muslims around the world in order to save their personality, beauty and fashion? International mainstream media try to create a black propaganda about this issue and you can never recognize the real truth about this… but what about looking at some interesting pictures of women wearing modern hijab? go to http://helloyahoomail.net/en
    2- What do you know about Mevlana, the great Sufi Poet of Persian gulf land? did you ever know that he didn’t write even a couplet of Turkish poem? http://www.persianmevlana.ir this website lets you gather valuable information on Mevlana.
