Travel ideas: Three Places in Italy I'd like to visit

Last year was a good one for travel: I went all the way to China, something I will tell you more about little by little because I am feeling nostalgic.

This year, with two little ones in tow, it will be difficult to travel but I do like to keep my options open and one of them is Italy. The North part of Italy is more easily accessible for us, hence the pics I chose. Hope you like them. In order : Venice (thinking about Death in Venice?), Florence and Cinque Terre. Sources are on my pinterest page here.

First some travel tips

In case you're wondering what other posts you'll see: the other options are Barcelona and Bordeaux, both close to my in laws in France.

Today's special : Broccoli Cauliflower Gratin

My husband and his work buddies are fit freaks: they like to do a lot of sports and eat healthy. Nothing out of the ordinary unless the sport in question is biking under -20°C. I try to support my guy so whenever I cook for him and the boys at work, I do my best to incorporate the latest food trend they are following. Veggies are always a must and these days they are into coconut oil so I put it in both sweet and salty foods.

The broccoli cauliflower dish is a staple in our kitchen, not because I eat it but because they do :); This time I made a sauce with leek I browned in coconut oil with some salt, pepper and garlic powder. I also added chicken broth and cream. Once cold I mixed it with 4 eggs and poured the whole thing over the steam vegetables. Some (a lot) of cheese on top and voila! The guys had a good, healthy lunch.
