From South to South

Hello to all! I know know , there is no excuse for my long hiatus and I apologize for that. Well you know cross country moving is not that easy imagine that it took me almost a month before being back on my foot again. And it feels so great.

I know you are all dying to hear some updates on me, my family and my kitchen so here it is. My daughter is still vibrant and jolly as ever, she's still having a difficult time though coping up with the very hot weather but is glad to have found so many friends to play with and it proved that language for children has never been a barrier. I know that you will ask me in the end, why the "hell" I accepted to change the simplicity and quietness of life in my beautiful Provencal city. I hear no more the singing cicadas but cars honking all the time. The scent of lavander is now replaced by the bustling city. And despite that I am "acrophobia" I am dwelling now on the place touches that sky. The blue Mediterranean sea is now a refreshing olympic size swimming pool. Well you know sometimes change is different. I''ll be bringing you soon my city-life cooking ;-)

I'm really glad to be back!
