SICILY'S VERY OWN...NIGELLA ESPRESSO!

ITALIAN SAUSAGES IN SPRITE

Nigella Lawson is my favorite cook. It occurred to me one day that my daughter, Sayaka Alessandra, http://www.sayakaalessandraofficial.com/,  instead of resembling me, resembles Nigella...well,  not physically perhaps :) but the long hair  and the accent, but mostly in the messy cooking,   so I suggested that she do a parody of Nigella. 




Well, it's obvious that Sayaka should stick to singing, and leave the cooking to me.  Here is a chocolate cake I made recently.  Photographed by  our talented friends  DIGITAL STUDIOS di Alessandro Spatafora e Agostino Parisi, address:  Via Guglielmo Marconi 80,  Trapani, Sicily

  34. Hey Francesca! My favourite poet is also Keats, can you believe it? He was the most romatic of the romantics! Still can't believe he died when he was 25, his poems were so... grown up.
    thank you for following me, your blog is amazing.
    xoxo Pearl
