This blog will turn into a cooking blog soon, I wanna bake all day long! The spring in the countryside, lots to do and finally off to Miami again! Anna in her wonderland the domestic goddess?

9 May

Dear readers

I don’t know what is wrong with me at the moment, all I want to do is cooking and baking! Maybe somehow I realised that I am quite good at cooking (even my husband casually said “I might let you do the cooking for dinner parties…you are not that bad”…after 5 years of perfect meals on his dinner table!) so probably I feel like experimenting even more…I should start to write that famous recipe book I go on about but I never get around to!

Lots went on recently, work at home has finished and we have a lovely patio so we can be ready to enjoy summer evenings and drinks…hopefully Britain will offer us a good summer!

I have had lots on my plate recently, I have been working on my husband’s website, I have been working on the wedding planning website and seems like clients are coming around now which is great….and on Monday we are off to Miami, what is better than that???

I can show you some of my latest creations and I will blog from the Sunshine State…have a great weekend everybody!!

Anna, the useless Domestic Goddess is trying hard to impress…and to not feel that useless!

23 Apr

I am really sorry to have not written for such a long time, nearly a week is too long, this is not what I would normally do…but unfortunately I was a bit down last week so I didn’t want that my problems could affect my writing.

I am absolutely fine , I do just feel very useless right now, I’m not working anymore and sometimes it’s a struggle getting up in the morning, why? What am I going to do today? Not much! It does feel so frustrating thinking…uh…I haven’t got much to think about apart tidy up the house, going to the supermarket and cook dinner! Not having a daily job makes you see things in a different way, I am so glad that when I was feeling low last week my husband and my best friend (and my family from Italy of course) were supporting me and tried to motivate me to look for something new, new experiences, new possibilities but it is not that easy right now in the current climate is it? At the moment probably the only thing in my mind is…food! What shall I cook for dinner? I even baked a cake last week and it came out presentable and tasty!

Shall I open a restaurant?….nah…shall I just keep on cooking and telling you about? Deal then!

Shepherd’s pie can be cook by Italians as well…I am the proof!

A good soup can always warm up your cold wintery evenings

A good experiment, chocolate carrots and walnuts cake

Or a slice of chocolate cheesecake at the local pub tastes so good everytime!

Feel down? Going out for breakfast at the local tea room revives you!

Pancakes anyone? We call them crespelle…mushroom one for me!

Friday night treat? Cupcakes!!! (courtesy of Cloud 9 Brighton)

It’s hard when my husband is better than me at cooking…he should become a chef! Last night lamb in red wine sauce and sundried tomatoes mash potatoes…was so good!

And what about this strawberry cake? Domestic goddess me? Domestic God him!

Seeing green, everywhere!

26 Nov

My weekend so far has been cooking, running around, helping my husband to paint the kitchen, yeah we finally made it! The colour is called verde de terre…to me is a light and pretty green, that goes so well with my obsession!

More green for me…I had to do some gardening… (please don’t tell anyone but I cannot stand gardering), sorry but collecting leaves and put them on the other side of the garden, on a windy day, was a kind of difficult job to do…! Indian dinner for us tonight… The thing that made my weekend was a link sent over on Facebook from my friend Shonda….you see it yourself! Have a good weekend everyone!

 

To paint, or not to paint, that is the question

24 Nov

Only five days back in the country and I’m already trying to keep myself busy with lot of silly things in my mind just to not let me think that the next proper holiday will be in 34 days…someone help me! By the way I’m trying to give a different touch to the house, I have already put lots of wedding pictures everywhere, planning a new coffee table and a new rug…next thing in my mind is give a makeover to the kitchen painting the walls in a different colour…why can’t I just find an hobby to be interest in???

Not easy to find the right colour by the way…yesterday we picked up 3 neutral colours which they are supposed to be light brown creamy…not at all they are white on my kitchen wall!! Next stop…paint shop again…any suggestions please? The kitchen is in oak with black counter top…SOS again!!!

Tiling, sunbathing, eating, what an hard life!

14 Sep

New experience for me today, my husband made me help him again in the kitchen (nearly done finally) and I did some tiling over the main wall, first time in my life, so last year I painted the walls when we bought the apartment, this time the tiling, I’m scared what’s going to happen next! Well maybe I should get an extra shopping trip somewhere because I’ve been a good wife, how strange to say that!

After that by the pool again, I can’t believe Thursday evening we are going back home, feeling sad already! Met a few really nice people here at Flamingo and I can’t wait to come back here in November, from Friday on I will start the countdown! Back to Ikea to take some pieces back and what’s up for us for dinner? We found an Argentine Steakhouse on the top of Lincoln Road and the dinner was spot on as usual! Wednesday as it is our last night here we go for a treat dinner after all our efforts at Cecconi’s, can’t wait! I’m definitely getting fat, can’t fit in my stripy Zara short!
