.. Without making this sound boring. It all started wai back when we were a small child, yikes! I was 3.
For Christmas mi parent's bought us an Easi Bake Oven, We were so excited to mix the little package of cake mix & water. We were also fascinated that the tini lite bulb it came with was going to do all the baking, well to our surprise it did! The easi frosting came with the cake mix .. Wow, could it be a miniature cake in 3 minutes .. It was so simple back then.
Our Nani Lucia also had us in the cucina with her @ the ripe young age of 4. We would help her make these Italian cookies (Pitzells as she called them) known as Pizzelle's , Easter bread, this orange zest sponge cake, bows, biscotti & so much more.
We always had a nack for sharing our candi & sweets. In the 8th grade the kids called us the candi Man" ..hello, I am a girl! Ani who, We always had lollipops, mari janes, razzles, bubblegum, sweet tarts, pixie stix's, candi buttons, peppermint patti's & those little wax bottles of flavored syrup just to name a few .. We would stuff it in the bottom hem of our Catholic School uniform dress.. you can't even imagine how mani things we could fit into that hem ..it went all the way around, We were packed for the dai! Another thing we were was known for was wearing sparkling green socks! Hello!! .. what were we thinking!?
