What Ms. LaPorta has been up to...

During the quarantine I have been using some time to do things that I truly enjoy. Such as taking my dog, Simba, for daily walks, usually after dinner. I make sure to have my children Giovanna and Marcello come with me so they can get fresh air and exercise. I also have been spending some time planting flowers, you can see Giovanna helping to water the flower boxes on our tree house! We have also planted a vegetable garden in our backyard. We will have plenty of organic goodies in no time! I have had some extra time for cooking and baking too, I love to do both! My kids cannot get enough of the zeppole (if you're lucky, you may have had these at an Italian feast:) ) and the homemade struffoli I so enjoy making, and of course eating! My daughter, Giovanna, is a big help when it comes to preparing these yummy delicious Italian treats! What have you been up to?
