Asiago Cheese and Almond Biscotti

Asiago Cheese and Almond Biscotti

Happy National Biscotti Day! This year, I am finally jumping on the food holiday bandwagon. In all the years I have been reading food blogs, I’ve always enjoyed reading posts celebrating a food holiday, so I figured I would get in on the fun too! To my delight, there are many Italian-themed food holidays as well as those that can easily be adapted to Italian recipes, and I’ve penciled them all into my editorial calendar to share with you throughout the year. I can’t think of a better food holiday to kick off this new tradition on Flavia’s Flavors than […]

Happy February! I’m a few days late because my blog was getting a much-needed facelift and I had to hold off on publishing new posts while my web developers worked behind the scenes. I am thrilled with the changes and I hope you like them as much as I do! The recipe section for every post is now more well-defined and there is better printing and pinning functionality. The logo placement and navigation bar are now better proportioned and easier to read. But the biggest change I made recently is that I have decided to turn Flavia’s Flavors into my […]

I have never been able to get on the meal planning bandwagon. I certainly appreciate how valuable it is for making grocery shopping easier, effortless, and cost-effective. I also understand how sanity-saving it is to know exactly what is on the menu for the week. However, I’m always apprehensive about planning meals days in advance because…what if I’m not really in the mood to eat that meal once the day arrives? That said, I don’t fly by the seat of my pants with mealtimes, either. I just take a less structured approach to deciding what we will eat for dinner throughout […]

I have never been (nor do I ever plan on being) one of these people who goes on a diet after the holidays. It’s disheartening to hear people speak as though they have to punish themselves at the start of the new year by going on a restrictive diet just because they ate some cookies and drank a little more alcohol than usual over the holiday season. I don’t do “clean eating” or fasting. Instead, I cook with as many whole and unprocessed ingredients as possible with a heavy emphasis on seasonal produce. I believe in balance and moderation for […]

Buon anno! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Years. It was lovely being home for Christmas this year after traveling overseas the last two years. Although being in Italy for Christmas and New Years is at the top of my “favorites” list, I did miss putting up our Christmas tree, baking cookies, and sending out Christmas cards. We will no doubt go to Italy for the holidays again, but it was nice to take a break and stay home this year. Like the past few years, I am taking January “off” from non-essential commitments and focusing on […]
