......do you remember the chocolate cake with roses?
well: this is what I've got from my friend Francesca.
FOUR very old gretings cards with flowers... you know I'm an avid collector..
they're so beautiful, with a past feeling....
This days are very busy... lots of things to do and no more time!!
In Italy we celebrate the evening of the 24th with a family dinner...
this year we would be 11 people and I'm the official chef !...like every year!!!!!
I'm devoted to choose the menu, (together with my sister), the table setting and decorations.
My house is too small so we'll stay to my sister flat that is much larger than mine.. she live close to me.. same landing. so it's easy!!!!

Now Christmas is really coming and I'm baking some pies as a present for friends !!!!! this is "La diablo", I think it could be " The devil" in English.
It's made by dark chocolate, eggs, nuts and a little bit of flour....It's very chewy and flavoured. I've put on the top some very little pink and yellow roses from my garden, as decoration!!!
ENJOY!!!!!!! XOXO Sabrina
