    September 10, 2014 by Johanna Burani

    I know.  I haven’t been around lately.  Last summer I disappeared for a while as I was recovering from shoulder surgery.  This summer I spent six glorious weeks in Europe, staying in familiar places, like our home in Friuli (northeastern Italy) and the lake region in southwestern Austria, but also in new areas, like the Cyclades Islands and the Peloponnese region in southern Greece.  Friuli and southern Austria never disappoint me, but the highlight of this summer’s travels was my introduction to Greece, its wonderful people, beautiful landscapes and scrumptious cuisine.wpid2022-Greece.jpg
    My husband, Sergio, and I enjoyed visiting Mykonos, Paros, Santorini and other Cyclades Islands.  We also had the extraordinary good fortune of being the houseguests of our relatives-in-law, Maria and Antonios Bistolaridis.  Although they left their Peloponnese villages nearly 40 years ago to build a new life in Michigan, their love for their homeland has never even remotely left their hearts.  They return every summer to their condominium in Paralio Astros.  They were magnificent tour guides!  We visited Meteora, Olympia, Sparta, Monemvasia, some beach towns and their native villages, Skortsinou and Vouno, where their families still live. keep reading »

    Low GI Recipe: Traditional Winter Minestrone

    Fresh homemade vegetable soup shows up on Italian kitchen tables all year long. Whatever fresh vegetables are already in the fridge, or growing in the vegetable garden or are the seasonal choices at the greengrocer’s is what constitutes that day’s “minestrone” or large pot of soup.

    In the States we can easily find zucchini in the winter and broccoli in the summer but I stick pretty much to the traditional winter/spring/summer/fall vegetables. Here’s how I make my minestrone during the winter months.

Gushers vs Tricklers


"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
