Foodie Friday: Italy Inspired Dinner

Italy Inspired

As you can probably tell from my Foodie Friday posts is that I love to cook. What really makes me happy though is seeing people enjoy my cooking. I realized recently that I had never really cooked for my grandparents. It was an easy decision then to decide that I wanted to cook for them.

Study Abroad: Boboli Garden: Summer 2012

One of my favorite place that I visited while in Florence was the Boboli Gardens. If you visit Florence I defiantly suggest a visit.
