Thumbnail image for Recipe: Erbazzone – Bringing Italian Cooking Home! by Gina "SuuperG" Stark February 7, 2016 Recipes

ShareIt was a whirlwind week of almost too much Italian food….almost.   Continuing on our intimate food tour, we sampled and savored prosciutto, culatello, authentic Parmigiano Reggiano, and an array of red wines. At times we were invited into the kitchens to sous (can that be a verb?) and learn first-hand secrets to the impassioned […]

ShareSo I’m traveling again, as is evidenced by the lack of blog postings. [insert sheepish grin here]. One would think the result would be more blog posts but my whirlwind trip through Germany was so non-stop I was lucky to find time to share some photos on Instagram!   In one day I’ve already stumbled […]

NAIAS: Moving Fordward and Going Green with Ford

ShareI must admit I wasn’t certain why I was invited to Ford Motor Company’s annual automotive showcase event and more recently the NAIAS – North American International Auto Show.  I am a closet car enthusiast but my driving habits are not closeted…the California Highway Patrol has certainly recognized me as a speed “enthusiast”. Yes, even […]

Share                I love lights and sparkle and glimmer and shimmer as much as anyone, but I think nature can fit the bill for “festive” as well. Today’s Twitter #FriFoto theme is just that; festive.  My mind turned to this one recent favorite snapshot I took of nearby Lake […]

Florence, Italy: Spooning the Duomo

ShareI arrive late to Florence, lugging my aptly named LUGGage behind me through the bustling train station. My first time here, I’m assured my hotel is in walking distance. Do people take in to account the fact you are hauling 60 plus pounds of luggage, laptops and cameras when they insist such things? So, I […]

ShareIf you worry that your fitness regimen may be challenged when you travel, fear not.  On one beautiful day in Italy, my girlfriends Helene, Sara and I managed to create and conquer our own Bologna Triathalon. First we climbed the 500 steps of the ancient Asinelli tower (barefoot) and monkeyed around on top while taking […]

‘The Sweetest Dolce of My Vita’ – Bologna, Italy

ShareI knew what I was getting into.  I mean, who thinks any trip to Italy won’t be infused with artisan crafted, heaven sent and heaven scented foods?   Patiently aged cheeses, hams, wines, and even balsamic vinegars make you grapple with the dilemma of whether to devour more of the same dish you just inhaled, or […]

ShareCiao my lovelies!  If you’ve been following my “Where’s Gina” GPS map, you have an inkling I’ve been enjoying Bologna for a while now.  I’ve been remiss in sharing because I’ve been strenuously enjoying the city – on your behalf, of course! (I mean “certo!”) I thought I would share a photo gallery that really […]

ShareI’m doing it again.  Yes, traveling (I do that on occasion). But more than that.  I’m opening my vacation up to the input, suggestions and perhaps even a few dares from my readers (and in this instance, fellow prior blogville residents). Be gentle. So, you may have seen some buzz going around Twitter about #BlogVille.  […]

ShareThose of you who follow me on Twitter as @SuuperG and here on my blog know me to be a bit of an adventuress; hiking locally and in Italy, skiing faster than my skill dictates, kayaking, paragliding, belly dancing (TRUST me! It’s an adventure when a mid-forties woman publicly bares her midriff while shimmying!), driving […]

Venice: A Thing of Beauty – Then and Now

Thumbnail image for Venice: A Thing of Beauty – Then and Now by Gina "SuuperG" Stark July 3, 2011 Travel and Adventures

ShareVenice has been called the most beautiful city in the world.  After meandering and savoring it’s many delights and sights for four days, I confess I won’t stand up and challenge that statement. I had been to Venice before, as an 18-year old high on freedom, possibility and the adventures made available to young travelers […]

ShareHave you ever seen the U.S. capitol? Toured the monuments? Visited the hallowed halls of the founding fathers and their documents of “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take this any more!”-ness ? But….have you ever seen fireflies? I am patriotic, really! (said with perhaps too much doth protesting) And I find […]
