Newbie from Italy

Hi everyone! I'm Laura, my sister Diana invited me to join this forum, so here I am!
I like to learn about culinary habits of other people and other countries.
I'm not a great cook but I can assure you that I'm a dedicated taster, so I can't wait to find out your recipes.
DC seems a pleasant forum, so thanks for giving me the opportunity to be here.

I don't know exactly what I've just done. I mixed three different recipes and did put ingredients at random since I haven't bought a kitchen scale yet. Baking powder, some butter, yogurt, sugar, apples, a bit of flour, more or less half an egg (a part of it has ended up in the kitchen sink), even a hint of salt...Don't ask me how, but it came out something very similar to a muffin. I will eat it, later. They seem edible muffins but in any case, if I don't call you in the next 48 hours, it means that I was wrong. At least I enjoyed myself. :D

I don't know if our kitchen is survived, but the beginner's luck has given good results!

Ahahah! Perhaps he's not the George Miller that I know (the director) but whoever he is, is brilliant! Thanks for your welcome :)

Hee hee! I thought it was pretty funny, and I dearly love Italian food. DH and I spent time in Rome and Florence, with a day trip to Pisa, during our 25th anniversary trip to Europe in 2009. So beautiful, so delicious. Such a wonderful place you live
