Living in Rome


I want to share with you my life in Rome. I would like you to feel as you were here. Here in Rome - Italy.
I will make as much as I can to make you try what it means to live in Rome in bad and good way.
Feel free to ask me whatever you have in mind. Any doubt , answer and suggestion is more than appreciated.
Let's begin Our travel.
Have a look to this video , the song is of a famous Roman singer Antonello Venditti, and the title is 'Roma Capoccia' , that in Roman slang means the capital Rome.

Alessandra,
I'm sure the muffins taste as wonderful as they look. I will definitely make them very soon.
And, I'll look forward to the other muffin recipes you told me about!
I know your uncle Leonardo would be very honored that he's been remembered in such a nice way.
Love, Sherry

Dear Allesandra,

I believe my husband is part of your family. His grandfather came to New York in the early 1900's from Greci - his name was Pasquale Norcia, his mother was Vencenza Strada. She came also. They settled in the Bronx NY. Jerry Boscia helped me find family and if your grandmother was Carosina DiMinno and her husband was John (Giovani)
Norcia let me know. You might also be related on his grnadmother's side the D'Atoli's also from Greci.
According to my familytreemakers your uncle Leonard and my husband are 5th cousins.

My husband loves to cook. Do you put raisins in your meatballs?

His great grandmother did that.
