Siracusa- the best food ever and a few general tips on how to survive in Sicily

Inspired to make magic in my kitchen today. I’m a total foodie. When I’m not being a mom and reading children books to my kids, I’m reading cookbooks, food magazines, and watching cooking shows. I love this post, because it’s none of those things, but is everything I love about food.
