In the Mood

It’s currently raining at our Seaside Ranch Home. It wasn’t supposed to rain until tomorrow but apparently, Mother Nature had other plans. So did I…and they involved being outdoors. I’m quickly shifting into Plan B which includes sitting in front of the computer (with the pup in my lap) and composing a long overdue post. I was researching some information for another post idea that’s been swirling around in my head when I stumbled across the Italian blog of Antonella Pagliaroli, a full-time Italian food blogger and photographer who lives in the small town of Bracciano located about 20 miles northwest of Rome. The blog is called “Fotogrammi di Zucchero”, which translates to “Frames of Sugar”. It is a beautiful site chock full of captivating photography and recipes that even non-cooks (like myself) can appreciate. The site has a dark, moody quality to it that captures the feeling of this winter day perfectly.

The inspiration for today’s post title, In the Mood, is actually the name of Antonella’s online magazine, which led me to her website. The most current magazine she publishes is from almost a year ago but the 7 issues she has posted are a feast for the eyes and are still relevant today.

    Dear Vanessa, your ears must have been ringing because I was thinking of you yesterday and had planned to send you an email enquiring where the heck you were??? Wanted to let you know your absence from the blogosphere has been missed. Glad you are back! So nice to learn about this Italian food blogger who reminds me a great deal of Mimi Thorisson who also has that dark, moody appearance to her photography. So, girlfriend, don’t stay away so long, ya hear!

    The work you’ve shared with us is truly a feast for the senses. The photography captures beautiful details, in addition to making you almost feel you can smell the food. Wow. Thanks for this.
