My BF is actually a pretty good cook too and I am trying to convince him to write a post here and there. He whipped up this strudel one evening after dinner and it was so easy and good that I decided I should share it on my blog. And then I thought it would be nice if he would share it. And then I decided maybe I can bring him to be a regular and I should create a BF corner. So here it is. This time he only conceded to writing the procedure and ingredients. I hope in the future he will be a bit more talkative…
So I missed another post. And I barely have any excuse apart from the usual work stuff. So, once again please forgive me! I swear I am trying to do my best!
Anyway, today I’m back and I am launching another series. I know you are probably tired of all this new things, but I assure you this is going to be the last one for a while. This is going to be a guest posting series, but is a special guest posting series. I have decided that I will host a monthly series of guest posting in which one of my Italian readers will propose a recipe from his/her repertoire. Hopefully, you will enjoy hearing about Italian cooking from different perspective.
To kick off the series, I am hosting a recipe by Gabriella. Gabriella lives in Milan and is the mom of my BF. She has always enjoyed cooking and finds spending time in the kitchen very relaxing. Which means she always cooked a lot. She would be the go to cook for scout’s parties for which she would prepare 150 meatballs for the famished kids. None of these delicious meatballs has ever been known to survive the party.
Today she has prepared us a wonderful veal roast stuffed with artichokes and encased in delicious pizza dough. She prepared this roast for Easter adapting the recipe from a recipe from her favorite cooking magazine Sale & Pepe. Looks good, doesn’t it?
This week I was in Seattle for a conference. Which kept me very busy and away for the computer for almost 3 whole days! Can you imagine how many emails I have to go through now?!?!
Well to forget about the emails I will introduce you to Daniela of Penna & Forchetta (Pen & Fork). Daniela is this month’s guest for Auntie’s corner, the series in which I bring you recipes from some of my Italian readers. Daniela is a great photographer and provides amazing recipes that are always translated in English. So head over to her blog and have a look at what is cooking in her kitchen!
Daniela gave us a great gift: she shared her family recipe for crescentine, a type of fried bread often enjoyed with cured meats and other appetizer in Emilia. She used to eat these crescentine during the big family lunches with aunts, uncles and cousins at her grandmother’s country house in Emilia, close to where now a string of earthquakes has caused many to loose their houses.
Give it a try and you will want to have eat these over and over again! And maybe you will start a new family tradition and make some happy memories of your family eating Daniela’s crescentine somewhere on the other side of the world!
