While I surely love food, cooking and baking, I also like telling stories. In this section, you can find a collection of #foodstories that I wrote over the years since that Fat Tuesday in Sweden, when I decided to start a foodblog to tell my culinary adventures as an Erasmus exchange student. And later on, of my life as an expat.
I’ve decided about this already some months ago. Until I wont’t be able to properly celebrate this big milestone bday in a proper way, I won’t turn older. Today, we are more or less in the same situation of one year ago. It feels like one year has passed but we are not moving forward…Read More
Some people say it’s wool, others it’s copper. Well, yesterday was the 7th anniversary of Aroma Di Cannella. Wow, I am getting old. Over the years I have always tried to make a little celebration around this day by either baking or cooking something special to share with the readers. It’s funny because every year…Read More
And the big day has finally arrived. After surviving one year of COVID-19 pandemic, we have got to enjoy another Fat Tuesday. For those of you following me over the years, Fat Tuesday (which is today) is a special day in the history of Aroma di Cannella and, well before that, in my family traditions.…Read More
This 2020 will be an year to remember. It’s the same story as my latest posts back in the spring, when I celebrated my 30th bday during the first lockdown or I challenged myself to try one recipe per day. Now, it’s the second COVID-19 wave, so we are again into lockdown for the Xmas…Read More
Life as an Italian expat living in Northern Europe ain’t always easy. Especially when you miss food from back home, like during festivities. “Il pacco da giù” is a typical expression we Italians living abroad use to call the package (pacco) of food we receive from our family (or send to ourselves). “Da giù” literally…Read More
Week 2 of the #onerecipeperday challenge is finished and I am proud of myself for being able to complete the #breakfastseries. So here you go with other 7 *NEW* recipes to try for breakfast or brunch. And, as additional special feature of the week, you can also find of the recipe of my birthday cake…Read More
You turn 30 in COVID-19 lockdown only once. But this doesn’t mean that you don’t have to do something special. Yesterday, I received so much love, support and wishes from so many people today like never before. I’m so grateful! Of course, I will throw a massive party once this is all over. So stay tuned.…Read More
Another year has almost passed after my last post. I know, I am getting worse and worse as I become older. I missed Fat Tuesday. I missed Aroma Di Cannella‘s 6th (!!!) foodversary. And here I am again, trying to come up with some excuses. Yes, I am going to say (as my older readers…Read More
I know, I know. Some readers might wonder about my third birthday in The Netherlands before the vierde (fourth) one of this post. Last year, I also celebrated my bday in the tulipland but, as I mentioned in my last post, I took a year off from the foodblogging world due to a very busy time in my…Read More
It is so nice to be back after almost a year of silence. No worries, I am still there. And I still love cooking and baking. I’ve just had lots going on in the past year that I had to park Aroma di Cannella offline for a while. Many things have happened since my last post written at…Read More
