Between my surgery and his infection we make a good pair: double trouble but we try not to let things upset us. We have each other and our love and that is more than we could wish for❤️💪 - christmas christmastree

picoftheday - Today it was a better day and I even managed to help my mum make roccoco' : crunchy and hard biscuits filled with almonds and canditi. They taste and smell of Christmas and they are so tasty. A real must for all Neapolitan families. Some of these will be treats for friends abs family. This Christmas it's all about books and food treats, which for me are always the best presents (apart from a holiday in the Maldives obviously🤣) - healthyingredients igersromahealthycooking buzzfeast yahoofoodf52grams huffposttastefoodporn foodie food instafood instagoodgoodnessfreshcoochina foodblogger foodblog ricetteitalianepastaloverfresh freshingredientsnaplescarblove italianfood italianfoodbloggerscomfortfood

picoftheday - Time goes so very slowly when you are not crazy busy running here and stressing out there. Being in bed means that you are somehow forced to stop and when you stop thoughts, good and bad, crowd your mind. I have wondered what the point of social media is, IG specifically. Regarding food, I have realised how cool it was when eating a good bowl of pasta was just that (no pausing for a picture before being able to tuck in) What was eating like when sharing our meal on sm was not a priority? But that is extended to any other moment of our life: holidays, shopping etc etc Sometimes it feels like I am wasting my time on these platforms. I think I am addicted but I have yet to figure out where this addiction gets its roots from...fear of feeling left out? Being forgotten? I am not sure what it is but what I do know is that I miss chatting over the phone, chatting over a cup of tea and doing things with people instead of sharing them with strangers. I don't know how yet but something will need to change, soon.

picoftheday - Breakfast in bed is another good thing I am loving while recovering. But this is not any other breakfast. These are the much loved cornetti 🥐 napoletani , those that thousands of Italians have with their espresso or cappuccino at the "bar" in the morning before rushing to work. These are cornetti of pasta brioche with a filling of crema pasticcera and amarena: these are the reasons why I could leave everything in London and come back to Italy. When at uni, after every exam I would celebrate with a cornetto crema e amarena and a glass of apricot juice. HEAVEN. @ge.nna.ri.no knows what I am talking about and he is on a crusade to spread the word about its utter goodness and heavenly taste. Who needs jewelry if you can have one of these?😍 Thank you mamma, you are my anl❤️ - healthyingredients irsromahealthycooking buzzfeast yahoofoodf52grams huffposttastefoodporn foodie food instafood instagoodgoodnessfreshcoochina foodblogr foodblog ricetteitalianepastaloverfresh freshingredientsnaplescarblove italianfood italianfoodblogrscomfortfood @anoicigarba

picoftheday - There is only a certain amount of things you can do when unwell and stuck in bed: reading a good book and taking care of my nails are def two of the top ones for me. I have realised that I have devoted so much time to cooking, writing recipes and working on the book that I neglected taking care of my body like pampering it and nourishing my brain with good books. It is sad that it took a big surgery to realise that and reassess priorities. It may be frustrating to feel unwell but there is always a bright side and mine is definitely going back to things close to my heart. Upwards and onwards 💪👊 - geopoliticsoldloveslovebooksre oksrecoveryaftersurgeryreflect

But coming back home today I have found this stunning bunch of flowers sent from my team and colleagues.

picoftheday - A stew for my poor husby who picked up another infection☹️There is honestly not much I can do apart from cooking good hot meals and remind him to drink plenty take his drugs and make sure he rests. I know he is hurting as he can't do many of the things he had planned including choir rehearsing with @westendmusicalchoir but hey this is it. It could have been much worse. He could not be here at all given how things turned out in 2013. Patience and acceptance are always helpful these days.💪 - healthyingredients igersromahealthycooking buzzfeast yahoofoodf52grams huffposttastefoodporn foodie food instafood instagoodgoodnessfreshcoochina foodblogger foodblog ricetteitalianepastaloverfresh freshingredientsnaplescarblove italianfood italianfoodbloggerscomfortfood

picoftheday - Tagliatelle alla boscaiola is a perfect pasta dish for cold winter days. This is the Neapolitan version made with salsiccia and cream. In Tuscany it is made with pancetta, mushrooms and tomatoes. They are both divine but cream mushrooms and sausages are just more heart warming during those cold days❄️❄️❄️ - healthyingredients healthyfoods healthycooking buzzfeast yahoofoodf52grams huffposttastefoodporn foodie food instafood instagoodgoodnessfreshcoochina foodblogger foodblog ricetteitalianepastaloverfresh freshingredientsnaplescarblove italianfood italianfoodbloggerscomfortfood

The best of the piccola pasticceria napoletana🔝🔝🔝 I am restless, sleep deprived and just really stressed. Things at work are difficult, health is still not 100% and other big and little things are not going as planned. BUT on days like this I remind myself of how much love I am surrounded by and that I have to try to get through this. Cooking is always a good start and that is what I will be doing today. Me time and switch off: forget about what is not going well and focus on the good things I have and these are so many😀 - healthyingredients healthyfoods healthycooking buzzfeast yahoofoodf52grams huffposttastefoodporn foodie food instafood instagoodgoodnessfreshcoochina foodblogger foodblog ricetteitalianecakesfreshingre neapolitanftood italianfood italianfoodbloggerscomfortfood
