I'm new to this site and love it! I just submitted an easy-peasy cannoli dip recipe that is absolutely delicious!

Beat ricotta cheese and cream cheese together in a bowl until smooth; add sugar and vanilla. Continue to stir mixture until sugar is completely incorporated. Fold chocolate chips through the cheese mixture.
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 10 minutes.
You can use sugar cones or cannoli shells (I break them into pieces) to scoop up this delicious dip! Mangia!

Thank you for your kind words Josephine. I am so glad the activity turned well for you. Best wishes.

Thanks Solange. Well the afternoon turned out better than was expected and some beautiful reactions from our residents, one lady who has reverted back to only speaking Italian was singing out loud which got us all in the mood. The pizza and wine went down a treat and I was able to get a DVD from the library that visited different regions of Italy. Something so simple turned out to be amazing. Lovely to get the tips from Golden Carers too. Just love this site.

Hi Josephine, what a great idea! Congratulations!

Thanks for these ideas. I have been able to download some Italian opera from YouTube, mainly Andrea Boccelli and will be inviting all to an afternoon at the Opera, all to dress up, turn the lights down, plus work with our chef to make mini pizza's for afternoon tea with some wine ! I am looking forward to it.

Hi! We never say Addio...that's mean Farewell...we say Ciao or Arrivederci.
Good day is Buongiorno
