Family Foodie Trip to Italy – Part Two: Positano, Sorrento + The Path of Gods Mountain Hike

Positano, Italy Guide

So first of all, major apologies for taking so long to post Part Two of our Family’s Italy Adventure! It’s been kind of bananas around here. Not only are we in our busiest season at the hotel, but I’ve also been in London doing some Florida Foodie cooking demos, working my booty off on my cookbook, and have been *trying* to plan our wedding! So many things!! Ah!

But alas, I’m back and ready to share our Amalfi Coast excursions. Since we were there way longer than we were in Rome, this post is going to flow a little differently. We’ll begin in Positano, which was our home base. Continue reading

The Gooey Gobbler – A Perfect Way to Use Your Thanksgiving Leftovers

And so the most jam-packed week of my life is underway and I’ve got to say — so far, so good! After just getting back from a fun-filled wedding weekend in Tallahassee with all of my best friends, to coming home for 24 hours and cooking at Black Dolphin Inn, to then quickly jetting to NYC, it seems as if Thanksgiving is the light (somewhat) at the end of the tunnel.

What’s not to love? Friends, family, and delicious food is right around the corner and for that, I’m super, SUPER grateful! Oh and total humble brag here but I need to mention it since I won’t be posting next week. I’m also grateful that my entire family is heading to Italy on Saturday for our first family trip in almost 7 years since we opened BDI… but that’s another story which you will be seeing a lot of if you follow me on instagram!
