My week in wonderland, spring weather instead than fall weather, long walks, baking, cooking and what else? Of course keep up with Coco!

7 Oct

Dear readers,

I hope you all had a nice weekend, it has been nearly ten days since I come home from Miami and it feels like I have been back for ages, but for once I am not complaining right now, the British weather is still really mild for the time a year and I am enjoying long walks with my loyal companion Coco, baking sessions, shopping trips and gym workouts (well I had one so far…give me the chance please!)

After been sweating a lot in Miami two weeks ago it’s quite nice sometimes to wear a cashmere jumper in the evening, cuddle up on the sofa with a glass of red wine….and I look forward to have the fire on!

My food obsession has reached a scary level and I do not know why, I spend hours looking at recipes, I started to bake apple crumbles and apple pies thanks to our endless stock of apples from our trees, I even attempted my first Victoria Sponge cake…even my husband couldn’t believe that I follow every single step of the recipe…apart the double cream…well I whipped lightly…probably too lightly but it will be better next time!

I have been thinking for over a year to start to collect my recipes  and write them on a book or because I hate follow recipes I should call it scrapbook… what do you reckon guys? Anna and her reinvented Italian recipe book, with British, Spanish and Cuban influences …if I get bored I will start to!

Here we are some pictures…

Have a great week guys!

Recipe books and lifestyle resolution, what’s going on in my wonderland?

19 Jan

I’m feeling in a funny phase of my life at the moment. I’m 27, this year I will be 28, married, don’t want kids before 3 years time at least, I have a lovely husband that loves me so much, I have a family in Italy that would die for me and my happiness, I feel like travel all the time, I have lots of interested, I started to write this blog in august and I’m so happy about how much satisfaction it gives me, I am happy, I could not deny this fact, but…despite all, I still feel kind of “incomplete”, or not completely satisfy right now.

What can I do to spice up my life? I would like some changes, do something that will make me more enthusiast and passionate…I would even love being at home for a while just being an housewife full time, I would like to try to see how it will be like…despite after a few days I will feel so bored, I know myself! Or working more from home, at the end of the day once I have the laptop and the internet connection I can work from anywhere and no one needs to know!

But thinking about better, it would be good! I will maybe join the gym (never been in a gym in my life…I couldn’t do it if I work full time but if I will be more free…why not?), have breakfast with my husband in the morning, go to the gym, go shopping

(NOT CLOTHES SHOPPING…well maybe some days I can get the train to London…please anna focus!)

cleaning, washing, ironing, cooking….do you know what??? I should start to write a recipe book…no I’m not going mad thanks; I love to cook, so why not put on paper…or on Microsoft word my food creations? I’m a creative person when it comes to cook.

My husband if he has to cook follows a recipe without miss 1 gram of whatever goes in the recipe, I’m creative…so I need red onions to cook the Nigella’s recipe but I have only white onion with me? I’ll use the white it will be fine…my husband will tell me off!

Right…I’ll try this!! My husband after 3 years of my cooking is still alive without any health problem so I must be ok….will it work for me? Let’s see!

Anna in her wonderland cooking book from the heart of Northern Italy…Move over Nigella!

Sorry I’m already thinking too fast!
