How can you miss me if I don't go away?

I am going through blogging withdrawl!

I just returned from my "CLUB TOUR" in Florida.

I taught a class at Ocean Reef Cooking School in Key Largo followed by two dinners for members and then off to Port Royal Club in Naples Florida for a series of dinner classes and fund raisers. All went so well I was invited back next year too.

I will catch up on the fun we had....
food we ate...
and my new toy!!!!

Check out dinner tonight..

The foto is taken with my new Nikon D50! My dream camera.
Haven't had an SLR since college, so feels like going back to school.
Took me forever to find where the F-stops were.

Usually the weather in winter is so cold, but this year is the warmest winter since 1860.
Although the mimosa trees are already in bloom( usually march) and my wild violets are up already, soup was on the menu for me after being away.

Something to sooth my Tuscan Soul!


  1. I am so happy to see you back!
    Ben tornata!

  2. Glad you enjoyed Florida but am even more glad that you are blogging again!

    I've been thinking of getting a SLR camera even though mine is less thna a year old. What is the picture quality like when taking pictures in low light?

  3. I haven't had much time to play with it yet, but am blown away by the quality with low light.

    I adore shooting with natural light and it is not a lot now in winter or indoors.

    I bought the body and not the regular lens but the macro for closeups.

    I also have my Kodak digital which I am very happy with for most shots while out and around.

    Using the SLR still needs time and thinking instead of just point and shoot.

    Hey, Judy,
    Just wanted to add (albeit late) that it was odd to spend some time with you in the USA. I've heard that EVERYONE loved the class and the dinners. They're asking for more. You go, girl!
    Can't wait for the next one...we'll be booking you for longer stays if you'll let us!
