Italy is such an amazing place. If you have never been - start planning a trip now - it is a place you MUST visit at some point in your life! The country has so much to offer in history, art, cuisine, shopping, etc. One discovery we made while we were there was Limoncello. It is some amazing stuff. I made some last fall and I'm almost out, so I decided it was time to make some more. Here is my step by step tutorial to show you how to make it! Cheers!
On a side note,...another discovery we made while in Italy, was that a traffic ticket is issued every 40 seconds in the city of Florence. Consider this your warning in case you decide to visit. Sadly, the city is loaded with cameras - ready to catch your violation and the traffic is insane there so it's hard to avoid a mishap. It got us and it might get you too! Fortunately the city had so much charm that we couldn't hold a grudge for too long.
