Happy Easter!

April 24, 2011

I’m home!  It’s nice to be back in America…but sad to no longer be in Italy…ah, the trials of a heart divided.

I wish everyone a joyful, peaceful Easter.  We don’t know what the future holds for us, and I think it will be even better than we can imagine.

Last weekend, I was lucky enough to get a cooking lesson from Dea, my friend Elisa’s mom, who is a wonderful cook.  She taught me how to make a colombo cake.  The colombo is a typical Italian Easter bread, light, fluffy, and studded with candied fruit and almonds.  We whipped egg yolks with mascarpone and sugar to make a custardy filling for a store-bought colombo, which we sliced in half.  Then we combined egg whites, colored sugar, and a bit of the mascarpone mixture to make a colorful glaze for the bread, which was delicious!
