When I turned over the page of my kitchen calendar for August I immediately knew I must try this recipe! It uses herbs I have in my garden, especially basil, which I posted about here recently.

After tracking down some Ricotta (I live in an uncivilized part of the world where people don’t seem to stock it!), I was hoping to take a lovely photo of it in the Sunday summer sun… then we had a major storm and had to turn all the lights on mid-afternoon!

A good excuse to make it again very soon – just for the photo of course! ;-)

I love to travel and find it interesting how the same holiday is celebrated around the world. Leah Larkin from Tales and Travel  shows us how Christmas is celebrated in France. Check it out and take a look at Tales and Travel  while you are at it…

The French are obsessed with food – or so it seems.  Restaurants, recipes, dinner menus – all are frequent topics of conversation.  At this of year, the focus is on the most important feast of the year, the Réveillon or Christmas Eve dinner.

I moved to France eight years ago and have been invited to share this occasion at the home of French friends, and I’ve invited them for the meal at our home.  The name of this dinner comes from the word réveil (meaning “waking”) because participation involves staying awake until midnight and beyond. At friend Veronique’s one year, dinner was interrupted at…
