How to Make Italian Mozzarelle in Carrozza

Miraculous things happen when you dip a mozzarella sandwich in batter and fry to perfection

What's wrong with me that I've never shared this recipe with you before?! Seriously! Not once (before today) I stopped to  take pictures for you. And I make mozzarelle in carrozza all the time at home. All the times that I'm looking for a fun, scrumptious and quick dinner idea. And all those times that I miss home. Yes, this is one of those recipes that makes my mind fly 10,000 km across the ocean, and reminds me of Venezia. 
Even though I can't duplicate the delicious-smelling scent drifting off the crowded osterie, or the same magical atmosphere of walking along the canals while eating one of these, I can reproduce the taste of the same mozzarelle in carrozza in my own kitchen, and share with you this recipe. 
So once you try it too, you can take a big bite, close your eyes, and daydream. Just like I do!

Mushroom, Potato and Fontina Quiche

How about a slice of this scrumptious vegetarian quiche to warm you up on a chilly winter day?!?
There's nothing like a hearty and filling vegetarian quiche to brighten up your weekend brunch. But who said that ONLY Sundays are for brunch?! I say every day should be a brunch day when it tastes this good and it's so easy to make.
This quiche has it all. The crispy golden, rosemary-infused potatoes on top. The flaky puff pastry on the sides and bottom. And the savory filling bursting with soft eggs, fontina cheese and sauteed mushrooms.
This quiche is cozy and comforting. Perfect for lazy and chilly winter days.
