Have I ever shown you my appliance garages in my kitchen? Well I was busy in them this weekend and therefore I’ve got a big week coming on this blog, so make sure you visit! First up will be my cioppino recipe which turned out GREAT – and this is easy and impressive to make for a gathering of friends.Then I’ll be posting how to make homemade ricotta – isn’t it about time I posted this like most other bloggers I know? The only difference is that I’ll turn it into a fabulous crostini spread featuring this month’s olive oil from Gourmet Cooking & Living. All you need to do is post a comment to be entered into the giveaway to earn a free bottle of this wonderful extra virgin olive oil from Italy!

Then I’ll finish off the week with my foccacia bread – easy, delicious, addicitive. See you later this week!
