Vierde verjaardag in Nederland

I know, I know. Some readers might wonder about my third birthday in The Netherlands before the vierde (fourth) one of this post. Last year, I also celebrated my bday in the tulipland but, as I mentioned in my last post, I took a year off from the foodblogging world due to a very busy time in my…

Dr. Di Cannella, Fat Tuesday and 5th blog-versary

It is no nice to be back after almost a year of silence. No worries, I am still there. And I still love cooking and baking. I’ve just had lots going on in the past year that I had to park Aroma di Cannella offline for a while. Many things have happened since my last post written at the…

Bye Bye Beautiful

Another journey comes to an end. Today, I’m writing from LAX airport, waiting at the gate for my flight back to tulipland. These past 3 months went so fast, but I had such a great time in UCLA LA LAND. Not only very productive concerning my #phdlife but also great memories of amazing people and…

Italian dinner in Santa Monica

Who knows me or has been following my culinary adventures for a little while might be aware that I not only love cooking in general, but also – and in particular – for other people. It really makes me super happy seeing people’s satisfied, sparkling eyes that show appreciation, while eating the food I prepared…

…Flash Happy Birthday!

Synopsis: Although I have very little time in these days, I couldn’t miss to celebrate the 4th anniversary of Aroma di Cannella. Too busy to get the best out of this UCLA LA LAND time, which is almost coming to an end. That’s quite sad. However, I will probably “have to” come back to Trumpallaland (East…

A Fat Tuesday in California

And this is the 5th Fat Tuesday’s celebration since when Aroma di Cannella made its first appearance on the foodblogosphere. I really like this moment of the year because not only Carnival baking is so much fun for me but also it gives me an occasion to look back at the old times (and make me realizing how fast…

UCLA LA LAND

It’s quite a while, I know, since the last post in December, when it was the right celebration time for PhD’s achievements and the Xmas coming. Many things have happened since then – all pretty positive, I have to say. I had a lovely Xmas time with my family in the Bel Paese. Two wonderful weeks…

It’s time for (not yet Xmas) celebration

Although it’s 10 days to Xmas and everything/everyone around keeps reminding it, it doesn’t mean there is no time to celebrate other stuff than Xmas. As you know, 2.5 years ago I moved to the Tulips’ Land to start a new adventure (some more info in my About me section): a PhD. It has not…

It’s time for Banana Bread

It’s again one of those rainy Saturdays. The autumn is definitely arrived in TulipLand. Last weekend, we had a last taste of nice, warm sun. So, I took the chance to spend some time outside. I visited the beautiful Het Loo palace in Apeldoorn. The weather was so perfect that I only quickly visited the…
