So, I am completely enamored with this old Italian family recipe-book that I have. When I was in high school, my graphic design class was hired to produce it. It was my job, so I managed to print myself a copy, and boy, am I sure glad! It's been a source of recent happiness (for all members of the family, not just me!)
My latest baking endeavor was this scrumptious orange spongecake. It was nearly a domestic fail, as it kept wanting to spill over into the oven. ugh. Yet I managed to salvage it, and it was a big hit and Monday night family dinner at Jesse's. I find myself at a disadvantage with this cookbook for a few reasons.
1. There are no pictures which tell me what it supposed to look like.
2. Sometimes they forget to tell you which pan to use.
3. I don't personally know Aunt Aggie, so I can't call her up for help with her recipe.
I find myself improvising and experimenting, but so far it has worked out. It's quite the adventure.
Oh, and I am in love with my new colorful cookery. They make me so happy to be domestic.
