Buongiorno and happy Friday!
As you’re reading this, I am hopefully whizzing my way along the Amalfi Coast, riding in a convertible Fiat with the wind in my Italian-sun kissed hair. Or maybe I’m in a random European sedan or passenger van. Either way, I’m totally okay with my mode of transportation because I am in Italy.
I’m here on a brand trip with DeLallo Foods, touring their pasta-making factory. If you’re a long-tine reader of FoodieCrush, you know I’ve worked with DeLallo for many years. If you’re new here, welcome, and check out some of my recipes with DeLallo here. DeLallo is a true-blue Italian import company and man, they make some amazing ingredients for delicious dishes.
I’ll be sharing more of my adventure over on Instagram stories, where this week, after 7 years of showing off my daughter and dearly departed dog Chewy, I finally changed my original profile picture. Wow. I’m really making progress over here :). And if you’re looking toward making a trip to the Amalfi coast, my friend Ali has a great Amalfi coast travel itinerary.
So instead of me waxing on here, I’m going to get right into this week’s Friday Faves so I can make more time for more pizza and pasta.
