Dear Sunday Dinner, This was more of an “experience” than just a dinner out! There was a party of 13 with 4 kids and we traveled to the top of the mountains to have an amazing dinner extravaganza at a place called Agriturismo Sa Crescjia Ezza. The concept of the place is that everything that they create […]

Dear Basil in Sardinia, This might be the tastiest green basil in the world…! Simple pesto with pine nuts, olive oil and salt makes the best simple sauce. Everyone can find these four ingredients BUT the special basil here is NOT typical. The leaves are deeper green, smaller in size and just a different flavor. A […]

Dearest Sardinia, This gorgeous place must be named the 8th wonder of the world!

Dear Cappotto, This is the word that I learned last weekend but couldn’t remember how to spell it or exactly what it meant! Cappotto means “overcoat” and when used during any game or match it is pretty much telling someone to “put on their jacket and go HOME!” When playing any game and one team has […]
