Cesarina XII

The year of 99 brought lots of changes for Cesarina. She now was in her house alone. She decided to sell many of her properties and enjoy life. She and one of her friends started traveling the world, and staying longer on her trips, and at the end of year, she had her first female grand baby.

She wanted her brother to give the baby a piggy back ride…Oh, the joy of telling your mother in law not to do something that is just wrong. Honestly, it was never easy. She really loved her grand babies though, I do have to say…she may not have enjoyed having me as a daughter in law, but she did love the children.


Much of our time was always around the table. It was all about the Italian experience. Sharing special meals, and by the end of the evening on Sunday even if there was a fiery exchange of words…everyone hugged and laughed.

Rosemary Bread

What do you need?

Olive Oil,   3 cups of all purpose flour, 1/2 tsp of salt, 3 tablespoons of fresh rosemary (cut the rosemary into very small pieces), 1 tsp of baking soda, 1 1/4 cups of buttermilk

Grease the cookie sheet and preheat your oven to 400

Add all your dry ingredients together. Mix the buttermilk into the dry ingredients. Roll the dough over the rosemary, and knead it into the dough. Shape the dough into a circle, and make a deep x in the middle. Brush the told of the loaf with milk and bake for 30 to 35 minutes.  You’re going to love it!
