It’s summer so why not add a pop of color to your nails, jewelry and clothing #SummeratCVS I found this fun summer ring at CVS stores and just love it. I wear it everywhere and it goes perfectly with my blue nails. #bluenailsdontcare My 2-1/2 year old grand daughter thinks the ring looks like the earth inside of the universe.
I just launched my YouTube channel this week and to celebrate I’m hosting a giveaway. One Sweeties Sweeps YouTube Subscriber will receive CVS gift cards to go shopping at CVS so you can buy your own fun summer jewelry (or whatever you want). The winner will also receive a copy of the book, Only in Naples by Katherine Wilson. This best selling book is “full of lighthearted humor, sumptuous food, the wisdom of an Italian mother-in-law, and all the atmosphere of Elena Ferrante’s Neapolitan Novels, this warm and witty memoir follows American-born Katherine Wilson on her adventures abroad. Thanks to a surprising romance – and a spirited woman who teaches her to laugh, to seize joy, and to love – a three-month rite of passage in Naples turns into a permanent embrace of this boisterous city on the Mediterranean.”
When I saw the sea at Gaeta, I knew that Naples was near and I was coming home.
“There is a chaotic, vibrant energy about Naples that forces you to let go and give in,” writes Katherine, who arrives in the city to intern at the United States Consulate. One evening, she meets handsome, studious Salvatore and finds herself immediately enveloped by his elegant mother, Raffaella, and the rest of the Avallone family. From that moment, Katherine’s education begins: Never eat the crust of a pizza first, always stand up and fight for yourself and your loved ones, and consider mealtimes sacred—food must be prepared fresh and consumed in compagnia.
Immersed in Neapolitan culture, traditions, and cuisine, slowly and unexpectedly falling for Salvatore, and longing for Raffaella’s company and guidance, Katherine discovers how to prepare meals that sing, from hearty, thick ragù to comforting rigatoni alla Genovese to pasta al forno, a casserole chock-full of bacon, béchamel, and no fewer than four kinds of cheeses. The secret to succulent, tender octopus? Beat it with a hammer. While Katherine is used to large American kitchens with islands and barstools, she understands the beauty of small, tight Italian ones, where it’s easy to offer a taste from a wooden spoon.
