Recipe: Fig & Rosemary Tart with an Apricot Ricotta

While vacationing in Italy, we enjoyed the chance to cook at home with fresh local ingredients, including those found among the grounds of the house where we stayed. Some of our favorite offerings were those of the ripe fig tree and bursting hedges of fragrant rosemary — this place was like walking through a foragers dream.

Basil's 5th Birthday

Checking in from Italy!

Buongiorno! That's, "good morning" in Italian! As you may already know, today we're checking in from the start of a 2 week vacation in Italy. We're staying in the Umbria region in a remote stone farm house that sits atop an olive grove overlooking the small historic town of Assisi.
