"Great Food Is Like Great Sex..."

from here

Agreeeeeed :)

What I've been Loosing Precious Time With...

I've been reading Babble's "Top 50 Mom Blogs, 2010" and I was bored out of my mind...
I needed to get to place 6 to actually find a cool blog! Place 6 was Pioneer Woman who I've been admiring for a while now.
I never thought that some moms can be this boring for non-moms. The surprising part is that they seem to be interesting for other moms... yet, don't ask me why cause I'm not going to waste more precious time to figure this one out.

Here are a few cool blogs that I did find on the list:

Pioneer Woman --> pretty and a lot of good recipes!
--> seems down to earth
CHOOKOOLOONKS --> beautiful pictures!
parent hacks --> useful
CITYMAMA --> a bit of everything
Mighty Girl
--> a natural and honest woman, without exaggerations, just how I like it :)

Check it out! Maybe you'll have more patience to discover other "hidden treasures" on the list ;)

Did You Know Sophia Loren Wrote Two Cookbooks?

Well I didn't :)

(1998)"Sophia Loren's Recipes and Memories".

(1972)"In the Kitchen with Love".

I would loooove to get my hands on her books <3

If you have one, tell me if it worth putting the books on my Christmas wish list :D

Sophia is a real woman in every sens of the word. See some of her quotes:

"I've never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don't understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now."

"Sex appeal is 50% what you've got and 50% what people think you've got."

"The two big advantages I had at birth were to have been born wise and to have been born in poverty."

"Cooking is an act of love, a gift, a way of sharing with others the little secrets -- "piccoli segreti" -- that are simmering on the burners."

"A woman's dress should be like a barbed wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view."

"Many people think they want things, but they don't really have the strength, the discipline. They are weak. I believe that you get what you want if you want it badly enough."

Gotta love her :)
