HellSongs for this Election Night and songs about Hell.  I can't imagine why I thought of putting those two themes together.

If the polls are correct, the majority of American people have decided that life during the administration of George W. Bush was just fine and are going to do their best to return us to that era, if not all the way back to the Middle Ages.  That's for 2012.

As Abraham Lincoln said, "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, and those are the people who watch FOX news."


I would never be mistaken for a political thinker but I wonder, in all seriousness, if anyone else has brought up the following idea:

La Bella Lingua book cover shotpasta with zucchini, cherry tomatoes, rosemary & basilWhat a perfect combination-discussing the Italian language with noted author, Dianne Hales, and preparing Italian food in the studio.  Dianne's book, La Bella Lingua, published in 2009,  is a great read full of history about how the language developed, populated with insights into colorful characters like Petrarch, Julius Caesar, Boccaccio, St. Francis of Assisi, Lorenzo de Medici, and Brunelleschi and, the author's own  journey as she navigated the complexities of the language and culture. 

Since our show is Great Taste, we'll focus on the language as it relates to different styles of cooking, work our way through some typical food terminology found on Italian menus, and share a simple recipe for pasta with marinara sauce as it was made every Sunday by Kathy's Grandma Gulla.
