Ciao, I’m Picco. No seriously, that’s my real name. It looks really weird on the birth certificate… I am a teenage girl and this is my blog. I started it with the goal of cooking my way through the Italian cookbook, The Silver Spoon, before I graduated from high school. But, as usual, things don’t go the way I’d like them to. In spring of 2011, my little sister was diagnosed with Celiac Disease-meaning she can’t eat gluten (wheat, malt, barley etc.). So this blog has kind of branched off into me making gluten-free food for her. Depending on the day, I might be blogging about things I make in The Silver Spoon, gluten-free food or just regular food. But, gluten-free or not, I promise everything I make is delicious. Gross food isn’t worth my time. True story.
Feel free to comment! I like comments. Seriously. When I get comments, my heart goes pitter-patter…or something like that. If you can’t think of anything to say, “You’re so awesome” is always a good option.
I can be contacted through telepathy, smoke signals, and thespoonatic(at)gmail(dot)com. Whatever floats your boat.
