  1. It’s Christmas time and a lot of parties to prepare for and go to – as always, I look for yourr recipes for inspiration. Many of them lead me to remember similar recipes, and occassions where I enjoyed them and with whom. So, a trip down the memory lane…
    Here in Italy these lovely Pachino tomatoes are still growing on the vines in Sicily, so what a better occassion than to make Tatin de to atoes !
    Happy holidays, Elizabeth ! Keep us posted on your new recipes !
    Hugs, Nena

    • Dear Nena,
      A Merry Christmas season to the Scott family. I look on the blog as a finished piece…a sort of online reference and I’m glad you find ways to use it.

      Come visit the Laeuchlis out in the country one of these days and meet our new horses.

      Speaking of memory lane, your comment recalled to mind a great afternoon Christmas party at your house in Vienna, with a tree decorated with children’s mittens and gloves and something lovely, warm and wine-y to drink with the tasty food.
