That's Amore!

What is Amore you ask? Well... perhaps Dean Martin sums it up best...

"When the moon hits your eye
Like a big-a pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine
Like you've had too much wine
That's amore

Bells'll ring
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts'll play
Like a gay tarantella

When the stars make you drool
Joost-a like pasta fazool
That's amore
When you dance down the street
With a cloud at your feet, you're in love
When you walk in a dream
But you know you're not dreamin', signore
'Scusami, but you see
Back in old Napoli, that's amore!"

That's Amore! is our theme this week.

Which of Giada's recipes say amore or love to you?

  • Is it a big pizza pie?
  • Some pasta fazool?
  • Something elegant?
  • A bite of something sweet and decadent?
  • A festive cocktail?
  • Chocolate perhaps?

Whatever you choose, when it's made with love...then my friends...That's Amore!

Decide which Giada recipe best shows your love, post it by Sunday, February 13th and don't forget to link your post for this week's theme with Mr. Linky below, so we can all share the love. Also remember to leave a comment after each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

Eeee! So cute :)

Deb in Hawaii said...

Thanks everyone. ;-) I had fun with it.

Arlene Delloro said...

I always loved Lady and the Tramp and after being a school principal for so many years, I could sing "On Top of Spaghetti" backwards! An apt post for Valentine's week.

Heather S-G said...

Yes I know...I know. I brought meatballs to the amore week instead of meatball week. What can I say? ;P

NKP said...

Not so much the fish, but the fact that we made lunch together. ♥

Love is stinky cheese. And red meat. Oh, and a nice wine. :-)
