Crazy crust, pasta matta.

As promised I'm back not only with news and chats but also with recipes!
Today I post you a basic recipe that will come on hands to you, I'm sure!
This is a good recipe to make tarts and pies, especially salty ones.
This is low on fat and really cheap, a good alternative to phyllo pastry or puff pastry.
It's good with soggy fillings and keep a good shape after baking.
This is a recipe for a 4-6 serving tart.
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil
a pinch of salt
1/4 cup sparkling water, cold
Mix all the ingredients untill you have a smooth and non sticky dough, you may need more or less water, add it little by litte.
Let the dough rest for few minutes then spread it and use it for your pie or tart.
You can bake it but also deep fry it, making little calzoni with tomato and mozzarella cheese for istance.


Back from holidays.

Yesterday we landed to Milano Malpensa after a long month of holidays, we had a nice time but sadly my grandma passed away while I was abroad and with no chance to come back.
The most important thing is that Lorenzo had a very very fun days made of swimming, playing, eating ice-creams...
A real toddler's dream.
Now that we're back I had to spend some time cleaning home and clothes washing plus a big groceries shopping  because my fridge is very similar to the one in the photo!

Anyway from the first days of september I'll be ready to cook again: I bought some food magazine from Australia and U.S.A. and a book about Thai fried rices I think I'll have so many things to try this autumn.
