The Variable Dancer presents a “difficult identity challenge, most easily distinguished by their distinctive bouncing (dancing) flight.” Stokes. “Dragonflies.”
Family, friends, and food are about love and time together. Shopping, chopping, concocting, sharing, with a focus on tasty, nutritious, do-it-fast and do-it-light, keep it fun, teach them how, and remember—there are usually extra friends at the table—everything smells so good.
While writing my book in progress “AN ITALIAN HANDFUL,” testing, tasting, and translating family recipes— I gained 10 pounds. Each one well earned. My children and their families helped me cook, tweak, taste, photograph, eat, critique, and retest recipes that spared no butter or sugar, but skimmed the fat off the sauce.
Like the ‘Variable Dancer’ my weekly blog will also bounce, from bits to bites of thought, recipes, cooking, writing, and people; to share, do it lighter, and with ease. Enjoy!
