How are you all doing? These days we’re experiencing a wide range of emotions, from stress and uncertainty to fear and anxiety. We’re all trying to cope with this to the best of our abilities. One thing we’ve found that has helped put us at ease is spending more time in the kitchen. Cooking and baking has allowed us to unwind, relieve tension, and unleash some creativity. It’s been really hard not being able to travel, let alone barely leave our own house. Cooking Italian recipes has made us feel like we’re bringing Italy to us. We wanted to share 4 of our favorite recipes with you. We hope that it’ll bring you a sense of adventure in the midst of the chaos going on in the world around us.

Buon appetito e salute!
In Italian they commonly say “salute” (short for alla salute) when you toast, which means “to the health.” Now, more than ever, we hope that you all stay healthy and safe.

PASTA AL PESTO DI PISTACCHIO
SALAME AL CIOCCOLATO
This classic Tuscan tomato and bread salad is fresh and summery. Perfect for lunch, an antipasto, or even a light dinner. We love making this dish because it's a great way to use your stale, old bread. The staple ingredients are traditionally bread, tomatoes, olive oil and vinegar. But what's great about this dish is you can make it your own! You can include, disregard, or add as much or little of the ingredients as you like! For example, other common versions include chopped red onion. I'm not a big fan of raw onions, but if you like them feel free to add them in there! Here's the recipe for our go-to panzanella.
Time: 45 minutes
What you’ll need:
Cubed, stale 2-day old bread (~ 3 cups)
2-3 diced tomatoes
3-4 diced celery stalks
1/4 cucumber thinly sliced
