This Birthday I decided to have an Italian Party.
For the past year or so my family have been getting together every couple of months
with a group of friends and we have been having International Dinners.
We try our hand at cooking different cuisines from around the globe.
In this particular instance some of the foods are authentic and others are a fun party take
on what is traditionally known as Italian.

and Salted Caramel.
