CUCINA CARA MIA.......Random thoughts from "my dear kitchen" about food, travel, Italy, San Diego and life!

Friday, January 22, 2010


I was just reviewing my entire blog looking for inspiration, looking for something....and I thought about all of the things, places, and experiences that speak to me...

If you are interested, here are a few...

*** Ceramic bowls, in any shape, size or color

*** Glossy design magazines

*** Gleaming wood floors

**** Ocean photos

**** Soft, old quilts

*** A field of lavender

*** Italy, and all that it encompasses

*** An antique store, explored for the first time

*** Traveling

*** Olive oil soap (italian of course)

*** A favorite book that someone has passed on to you

*** Anthropologie-I tingle when I walk in!

*** Nutella, limoncello, gelato...

Making a great recipe for the first time ....pictured above is last night's Chicken Pot Pie, courtesy of Janie at Panini was outstanding!

So there are just a few of my favorite things! What are YOURS??

I love your list Linda. I think I'd choose everything on it and add Ireland as one of my favorite places to visit, books of all kinds, cats, roses, and opera music!

Many of my fave right down to the nutella!

Ummmmm. The pie looks and sounds delish!

Glad you liked the recipe. You sure know how to appreciate the good things in life! You just need more time in Italy to expand the list!

Hi Linda list would be almost the same as yours except for the Nutella....I know I should love the stuff...and I don't drink so the lemon stuff wouldn;t be on my list either.....
here is the website for the Swan House in Atlanta

Hi Linda, Greetings from Assisi!

thank you so much for posting "Italy" as one of your favorite things. As an Italian, believe it or not I am totally fascinated by Italy lovers. They are a special category of people and sometimes more competent than us locals! Ciao
