  • This is the team up I've been waiting for. ❤️❤️❤️

  • Would I go so far as to call myself a baking genius? Yes. Yes, I would. 😅

But I became obsessed with it when we went to Genoa, and Rand and I seek out whenever we're in Liguria. We may have canceled our Italy trip, but I'll be damned if I'm not eating all the carbs. #saminnosrat #focaccia #saltacidfatheat
