Welcome Simona!

Dear food blogger buddies,

It gives me great pleasure to introduce my friend Simona to the blogging community. About to relocate from the Bay Area to the North Coast (yay!), Simona is a food writer, chocolate lover (her home town is Perugia, Italy) and new blogger.

Simona's blog, Briciole, has links to her lovely writing and features an "idiosyncratic and opinionated dictionary of Italian words related to food." I don't speak Italian, but as near as I can determine, Briciole may mean "meatballs". Simona, please correct me if I'm wrong.

Please check out her blog and give her a hearty welcome!

  1. Thank you so much Christine for the warm welcome! I am truly honored.
    Hello everybody.
    Briciole actually means crumbles in Italian. I chose the name, because I see my short pieces as crumbles dropped in the blogosphere.
    You mentioned meatballs and in so doing you gave me an idea for a future entry, so stay tuned.

  2. Well, this is wonderful- I am so excited to follow her bogs! Been spending a great deal of time in Italy recently, doing tours there now, and I will definately put her on my list! i am happy to see you back, too!

  3. Welcome, Simona!
    I look forward to some wonderful Italian food. It's been too long since I've played with my Italian cook books!

  4. Welcome, Simona!


  5. Simona, Crumbles makes much more sense than meatballs. I'm glad my goof was food for inspiration!

    Thanks to Katie, Paz, Tanna and Jann for your welcome messages. As we all know, a newcomer to food blogging needs words of encouragement.

  6. Welcome Simona
    My daughter has an Italian partner so I will look forward to finding out more so that I can impress him?!!

  7. Thank you for pointing out Simona's blog to me!I love it and had to put it in my favorites list right away.
