What can we say about Bruschetta? Bruschetta is so popular that it is served in almost every restaurant. Thousands of variations exist but I prefer the more traditional ingredients and preparations of Bruschetta--simple but classic, with juicy tomatoes, spicy garlic, sweet basil, and rich extra-virgin olive oil. 



ONLY FRIDAY 56 PARTICIPANTS MAY USE THE LINKY.

"The results of your tests are in. You have what is known as celiac disease," the specialist said on that fateful September 12, 2013. At first I didn't respond. I needed a minute to actually let those words sink in and process what I just heard. I was somewhat familiar with gluten since a few friends of mine do suffer with gluten intolerance, but I was not knowledgeable enough to really understand the implications. I told him that this could not be. I ate pasta and bread all year round but I was not sick all year round. It must be a mistake.

  1. Mmm, now I'm hungry. I love bread so if I ever am diagnosed with Celiac's, I am going to have a hard time.

  2. Your Friday 56 selection made me hungry, and the book's opening made me curious. I don't know much about celiac disease, but I've been hearing a lot about it lately.
    Thank you for hosting The Friday 56.

  5. Bruschetta is one of my all-time favourite Italian things, coming a close second to pizza. I would love to be able to make it properly myself. A friend of mine found out she was gluten-intolerant and was heart-broken for quite a while so I may have to tell her about this cook book! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great weekend!

Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
