  1. Grazie per la ricetta?? I think. One month in Italy and I didn't learn much except how to say okay with an Italian accent. Which should be the only damn way to say it. "OhKaay!" Happy belated, frank.

This particular recipe was the final of the day at about 3PM – it was my 30th birthday, I told no one. the crew (having all my personal info) brought out a cake and sang to me right after this wrapped, which brought tears to my eyes. I then hopped on my vespa and shot over to work on the line until 1am. Never Stop Hustling.. plus this recipe is fantastic, don't listen to anyone who says it's wrong – it works scientifically.
