Pasta alla Norma – a link sent to us by our brother in law in Connecticut, the blogger at Virgie and Hats puts together a nice version of pasta alla norm or pasta with eggplant, ricotta, and tomato sauce.

Beautiful Pizza – the painter and cook over at cook blog posted some great pictures of his homemade pizza garnished with homemade toppings from his garden.
