It’s so easy and quick. We definitely will be making this again…soon. Thank you!" Bea (Strawberry Layer Cake with Sweet Mascarpone Icing)

"Your blog is very special. I love your photos, stories, style, and all the content. Through all those, you have touched us with ‘warmth’ of your lively & cheerful friendship, and allow us to be close to you as real as a ‘real’ person. What you share is very genuine. It reaches us as you are fully sharing it from your heart, and it comes to us as if we were your friends who actually sit right in your kitchen or garden with you. You truly make us very special. Your today recipe is very well received in such a manner that I, whose mother’s tongue is Thai, cannot find words to express. I feel that you felt for us who love Italian food, that we often look for something real but do not get to the point. You have watched us, Italian or non-Italians, search for this very recipe to the point that you cannot hold it any longer, and have to come out and share what you can with us. Thank you so much for everything. You are most appreciated." Churaipon Chintakanont Klaijumlang from Thailand
"What a wonderful torta! I love apple desserts, and this one sounds wonderful. Each of my aunts and my grandmothers had her own version – similar, but truly unique. Funny, but when I saw this post I immediately got to thinking about all of them – long gone now. It was like a trip back in time there for a little bit just now. Thanks, Roz, for starting my day off beautifully. Buona domenica a te!" Adri

I bought some dark chocolate vinegar and substituted it for the aged balsamic. It was amazing in this recipe!" Eileen (Grilled Peaches with with Mascarpone Cream and Sweet Balsamic Syrup)
"I am just in awe that you time took the time (after all the things you do) to chat with little ol’ me! We’re looking forward to having one of these cakes for us to eat, one to freeze, and one to give away (if we don’t get greedy and eat all three)! This has been such a fun experience. Thank you for all your time and devotion to great cooking! When I lived in Orlando, almost all my friends were full-blooded Italians from New York. I have a few reliable Italian recipes already in my repertoire, but I am getting some new/great ideas from your blog. The next time I see my FL friends, I’ll be able to impress them with some of your authentic Italian dishes! Cheers, Libby ( Cinnamon-y Zucchini Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting)
