I am back from London and full of food inspiration, I can just feel foodie dreams and ideas coursing thorough me! And I can’t wait to share it all with you!

So we made business into pleasure with the long weekend here in Italy and I met my husband in London, as he was already there for work. Of course we partied it up like rockstars with our 2 month old (the 2 1/2 year old stayed at home with the nonni) and our friends’ two kids (2 1/2 and 8 months) with wildly late nights (max was 1 am) and crazy (baby) parties. Yeah, and the straight talk is that really, we got to just relax, see some old friends and eat obscene amounts of Indian food. But what was so exciting about London (aside from the fact that it is London and awesome in its own right), is how diverse its people, and of course, its food are. There is any type of cuisine imaginable that you could ever want and any kind of ingredient your heart could desire (but doesn’t even know it because you didn’t even know it existed – now that’s what’s fabulous about cities and consumerism, they make you realize how much you need something when you didn’t even know it existed  or that you wanted it- how could you have possibly lived without it for all this time!).  Continue reading

My Hiatus, Buns and Tigelle

Big news! Buns! Buns in the oven that is! So this should clear me of all blogosphere neglect as I know I have been a bit AWOL but it is totally justified! The Sirotti family is on its way to becoming 4 with another baby boy on the way!

I honestly haven’t been too gung-ho about food or eating lately, in fact everything turned me off and kinda made me wanna barf, which has made cooking and especially getting excited enough about food to take pics, write about it and post about it just nauseating thinking about it. But now that I am over the 3 month hump the skies have cleared, the clouds have parted and the sun is shinning and I am so pumped to start cooking again! I am so inspired, and hungry again – life is good! Continue reading

This post is dedicated to my friend Keeley, who recently became vegan. I am so proud of her –  she has been working really hard and is doing an awesome job. She has inspired me with her new found dedication to wellness that she kicked off with a week and half juice fast. I have dedicated this post to her because, aside from the fact that she is my best friend in the world, despite the distance, she is always lovingly honest with me and told me that I should make this more personal, and I think she is 100% right. I have been wanting to make it more personal but have felt a little lost at times on how to do this and also because I have so little time and I love posting so I often just write the essentials and leave out the lovin’. So, thanks to Keeley, I am now going to make it a point to share a bit more about me and not just my recipes, because really, the food is just a part of who I am, but I want my readers to get to know the other sides of me, the mom, wife, friend, spiritual-seeking hippie that I am. Now that sharing time is over and I’ve done my part, let’s get down to business and get on with this recipe! Continue reading
