Super Bowl Spread 2014 in Italy!

My boyfriend and I make quite the team in the kitchen. We brought our American favorites to the table tonight.

Not only is my new boutique (ROC ME OUT-  www.rocmeout.com) my creative outlet but I love to cook! I love all foods including a healthy base with the regular indulgents too… I just cant help myself!

Yes, the VERY cheesy and bacon filled potato skins were my favorite. Of course..

Easy to do:

Clean your selected potatoes, poke a few fork holes, rub on salt and olive oil for flavor, then bake in the oven for about an hour. Next, scoop out the potato to make boats.. Bake the boats for about 15 min on each side. Fill with your favorite toppings and pop back in the over just enough to heat the toppings! I top mine with sour cream and enjoy!

Homemade fresh and spicy salsa!

Salsa is a family recipe that brings a punch.. It is the fresh chopped jalapenos, diced tomatoes, and cilantro that brings the bold flavor!

Italian Street Market Saturday

Twice a week this town sets up a street market with at least 100 booths selling a variety of items including produce, household items, clothing, shoes, prepared foods, toys, etc.. Strolling the streets and being inspired is fun and always different. In my hometown in Florida we have a Saturday Market once a month so I was excited to see this is a common occurrence for the laid back people of Italy.

View down the closed streets of Cremona as locals haggle for a good deal.

European men and women alike wear a variety of boots each day to keep warm and it was no surprise to see this boot booth.

After the chilly street market a local café was my next stop! Fresh pastries and an espresso or cappuccino is necessity living in Italy.

My fresh air stroll and espresso has inspired me to research new ideas for Roc Me Out Boutique!
