Above, Leslie’s 75th birthday cake; at right an incredibly memorable Tiramisu we had in Siena several years ago.

Always eat dessert first.

That was my father’s approach. In his honor (9.13.25-10.21.11), and because we were celebrating a dear friend’s 75th birthday today, I ate cake, pie, and even cookies. Ho mangiato tutte quelle dolce anche per un’amica in Italia perche é anche il suo compleanno. Tanti auguri, Giovanna – mi dispiace che non eravamo li in Italia per festeggiare con te.

My father’s sweet tooth – and in particular the need for chocolate in one’s diet – is definitely alive and well in me!
