Tortino di alici

Strong taste and healthy omega 3 for a fish that is very good and cheap: anchovy!

This is an appetizer that is very easy to prepare if you find the fillet anchovies at the supermarket otherwise, as it was for me, you need to remove the bones from each fish! Anchovy is not so big so it takes time to fillet it since you cannot use a knife but just hands! 

500 gr anchovies (for 4/5 savoury pies)
250 gr buffalo mozzarella
Lemon zest

Mix the breadcrumbs with lemon zest and parsley than bread the fillets.

Cover the base of mold with the anchovy fillets than put in the middle some mozzarella pieces and close with others fillets!

Preaheat the oven to 180 C and cook for 5 min.

Serve with a good glass of cold white wine!

Raspberry jam

After summer holiday I am used to prepare jams and preserved tomatoes. Let’s start with this simple and taste recipe that will make your  smile.
1 kg raspberries
300 gr sugar
100 gr brown sugar
2 tablespoons of lemon juice
Once sterilized your jars, select the raspberries, washing them without rinsing.
 Put a pot on medium-low heat with the raspberries, sugar and lemon juice and stir gently. Once on high-boiling, skim the foam off and turn on medium-high heat. Stir with a wooden spoon for 10 min.
Your jam is ready when putting a spoon of jam on a cold dish,  It does not start to fall down, otherwise the jam needs more cooking time.
Pour your hot jam in the jars and close them.  Store  in a cool, dry and dark place for up to 1 year.

When I grow up

When I turn 18, I'll...
When I leave the College, I'll...
When I get my first job, I'll...
When I grow up, I'll...


From today on I am sure that my whens would not have the same meaning as before but I am not reluctant at all to move on from 29 to 30, even if I have noticed some gray hair.


Because even if I have no idea about my future, I dig what I see in my past and I am so damn passionate in my present!
