Now if only I could recreate that gelato…
What do you want to do when you retire?
Ben and I plan on moving here:
aka, Heaven on earth, aka Praiano, Italy!

I miss the food in Italy so much… My waistline, however, does not ;-)
Michelle (The Runner's Plate)
I’m sold! I’m going to Italy!!
As for when I retire, I want to travel to see the great flower and water gardens of the world. Also, I’d like to be a foster mother to special needs infants.

When I retire, we might be next door neighbors because I would looove to move to a cute little place in Italy overlooking the water. The hubby may not come with me though…something tells me I’ll never pull him from his midwest roots ;)
I’ll take some! :) Your plate actually looks more appetizing than the one in Rome. I would be happy to retire anywhere that does not have this NE snow!
Liz @ Blog is the New Black
When I retire, I want to travel! And your meal makes me want to travel to Italy immediately!
Jessica @ How Sweet It Is
Drool. Holy yum.
1. I am making that meal. Pronto.
2. I am going to attempt to talk my husband into letting us live on one of the U.S. Virgin Islands. I think I need to buy a lottery ticket. More than likely we’ll “winter” in AZ. There’s some familial property down there in the shape of two lovely homes. Beach, no. Sun, yes. :)
Now I want to go on a trip and eat pasta, and don’t want to wait until retirement to do it! Your pictures look fabulous! What did you think of the Bel Gioioso cheese? I’ve been eyeing it in the grocery story lately, but have yet to pick some up.
what a beautiful walk down memory lane…..ahhhhh
there is nothing about this post that doesn’t make me want to pack it up this very second. I love Italy, Amalfi Coast, their pasta & gelato……mmmmmm gelato
Gotta go dig for the passport! Thanks for the inspiration!
Estela @ Weekly Bite
This is my favorite Italian dish!!!
I love bacon. And cheese.
OMG… such a decadent dish – so lovely! Melty and gooey!
I am originally from Portland Oregon and now I live in Southern California. I would love to live in St. Helena or Petaluma which is beautiful and located in Northern California! Ahhhh…. a happy comprimise for this born and raised west coast gal!
Oh yes. The gelato was AMAZING! I had to have it every day while in Italy. Have you tried the gelato at Stam on Ingersoll?
Just found your blog recently through a friend’s post on Twitter. I, too, love to eat, run and travel. :-) Looking forward to reading your upcoming posts!

i’d love to travel when we retire! :)
Love this photo story :) It tells a lot with only pictures!
My husband & I are planning on buying a condo somewhere on South Padre Island. The longer I live in SoDak, the less I can handle the winters!
Faith @ lovelyascharged
Mmmmm, nothing at all beats Italian food. I think I’d love to retire to Italy as well!
Yuuum. That looks delish and totally Italian.
Wow! Italy looks amazing. And that pasta al dente. Oh gosh. Yummo.
Jenna @ readwriteandlive
Food looks amazing!
When I retire, I’d like to either go to Annecy, France or Bath, England. I hope to live in England before retirement, so if that works out then I’ll look into France later. Dream world, but I don’t mind. :P
Lily @ Lily's Health Pad
I wish I could recreate the yogurt gelato so badly! And I think I may try with my parents ice cream maker next summer. We’ll see how it goes…
Beth @ bethcooks
YUM…..Cracked Pepper Pasta is my dream come true! I may need to re-create that with my pasta maker…..YUM!
That looks amazing – bet you’re homesick for Italy! There’s an amazing place here in town that serves Gelato and all the other Italian desserts that make us say, yum! We really try to limit ourselves going there – can’t imagine why(they just started soups & sandwiches too)! Retirement – so close and yet so far – We just want a grandma-grandpa kind of country place – few chickens, orchard, little (?) garden. Cheap taxes – a ha ha ha! Travel the big ole US of A.
Teri [a foodie stays fit]
Your posts that involve Italy make want to travel like crazy. I LOVED Rome.
I’d love to retire in NYC or somewhere in Europe. Or in a quiet coastal town. Clearly, I haven’t decided. :)
Well i’m already retired and just got back from Italy this year. I clearly love them both…
Sarah (going on goals)
Love your pictures!
That looks so delicious!
I’d love to travel when I retire, but mostly just be able to do whatever I want!
p.s. I have a giveaway on my blog…you should come check it out! ;)
I’m guessing I will be working till I drop dead! Sad but true! But if I should retire I would like to just putz around & do nothing! Ha!
Yummo, I need to make ASAP.
Retiring? Depends on how much is left after getting all three kiddos through college.
I miss Italy! My hubby and I lived there a few years back! Sigggh :) I’d love to retire in Spain, however :)

Just found your blog and love it. Great pictorial instructions!
Clare @ Fitting It All In
Love the simplicity of this post!! Looks delicious.
And I think I’ll retire to either Hilton Head, SC, or Greece. Or Dublin. Yeah probably Dublin.
i’m drooling. that looks delicious!
Rome is like my second home, its just so beautiful and the food is fantastic! Well done on the replica though! xxx
Looks delicious! Maybe making a trip to the store…
How I’d love it if we could go to Italy for our honeymoon! And those dishes look wonderful. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
My name's Kristin Porter and I'm an Iowa Girl! I eat as well as my sweet tooth allows, run as often as possible despite the crazy Iowa weather, and am usually dreaming about the next place I want to travel to! Read more...
