Welcome to the boot - the love song within a foreign film that is my life. easy and healthy recipes for the budding home cook, stories about me and my Italian husband Manu, and snippets of life in Italy.
Buon giorno, friends! After a long, bitter cold spell, the sun has come out and today Barletta is absolutely resplendent! (Finally, I can do laundry! In the land of no dryers, the sun is crucial to laundry efficiency.) I'm sitting in my favorite cafè, cappuccino steaming next to me, with its friend the apricot jam croissant. I'm making some changes to the boot's pages and breathing in the sweet smell of spring as it wafts in the open window. Oh, and I'm also dreaming about pickles and mustard: two things that my poor, American palette misses like crazy! I have a precious jar of spicy honey mustard that I ration out, and it's almost finished. That will be a sad day, I tell you.
