Made it to San Diego!

Finally, the traveling is over! We arrived in San Diego this morning and are now getting settled in at my sister’s house. The best news? I have a fully stocked kitchen at my disposal and two more people who are willing to eat my experiments! New recipes coming soon!

A Beautiful Day in Sicily

Little House

Remember how I joined NaBloPoMo and made a promise to post something every day for the entire month of November? Well, it’s day eleven now and I’m starting to feel the pressure. But here I am, back again!

This is our last weekend in Sicily so we have been trying hard to squeeze in as much last minute sightseeing as we can. Today was a beautiful sunny day so we took a road trip through the island’s interior, visiting the towns of Agira, Nicosia and Sperlinga. Since we were gone all day and it’s now getting close to my bedtime, I am just going to share some photos taken throughout the day rather than writing about the trip. Enjoy! Continue reading →

A Typical Sicilian Lunch

Antipasti in St. Alfio

Antipasti (appetizer): Two types of salami (one spicy, one not), cheese, olives, peperonata (marinated sweet and sour peppers with pine nuts and raisins), garlicky eggplant slices, one square of something really tasty that was obviously made with eggs and cheese but I’m not sure what it’s called, and one square of something else (again, I have no idea what it’s called) that was layered with eggplant, tomato, cheese, and some other things.

Antipasto is always my favorite course! Continue reading →

A Weekend in Sicily, Continued

After our late breakfast, we decided to hit a clothing store before everything shut down for the afternoon riposo (Italy’s version of the Spanish Siesta). Justin was in search of a men’s carryall (It’s not a purse, it’s European!) so we decided to hit Scaringi, a clothing store in Misterbianco that has a decent selection of Men’s clothing and accessories.

We struck out with the men’s carryall but look what I found in the parking lot!

Like I’ve said before, you just never know what you’ll run across in Sicily. Continue reading →

A Weekend in Sicily

I’ve lived in Sicily for just over four years now and we’ll be leaving the island for good in less than a month. I’m sure I’ll write more about my feelings on that later on. Right now I’m just trying not to think too much about it. So rather than write about what it feels like to be leaving, I thought I would just share some photos that I took over the weekend, just to give you a sense of what life is like here.

We didn’t do much last weekend. Not really. But when I look back at the photos, I feel like the luckiest person in the world to have spent this time here. It still feels like a dream.

I live in Sicily.

Kurtoskalacs: A Transylvanian Treat!

Roasting Kurtoskalacs

I’m back from Transylvania and I just had to share with you my favorite food discovery! We ate these kurtoskalacs twice and I wish I would have had a chance to eat them a few more times!

Kurtoskalacs are a traditional Hungarian pastry and, depending on who you talk to, they are the oldest Hungarian pastry. History and Geography are two of my worst subjects but Transylvania, which is now part of Romania, was once part of Hungary. Or something like that. Anyway, there is still a sizable Hungarian population in Transylvania and these yummy kurtoskalacs, which I believe originate from Transylvania, are widely available. Continue reading →

I’ll Be Back Soon!

It’s time for more traveling and this time I’m headed to Transylvania!


Can you think of a better place to visit in October?

I made the decision to leave my computer at home this time (shocking, I know), so I will be unplugged until the beginning of next week. I’ll be back to answer comments and e-mails by Tuesday. Have a great weekend!
