New Cookbook

It's mom's bday and I picked up the new Giada Cookbook for her. I should have picked up two. Some great recipes in there like Italian Fried Olives, Roasted Eggplant and White Bean Crostini, Chicken Milanese with Tomato and Fennel, Italian Lentil Salad, and Espresso Caramel Bars - ok I'll stop now!

I also found these beautiful tulips - one of her favorite flowers - loved the striped petals.

And the sugar lime cookies, couldn't resist.

On my way to lunch with mom. Hope you're having a great week!

It's almost Friday!
