When in Rome here in England (!) it started to be warm I just miss my italian ice creams and granite and the evening walks in town so much. And one of the drink that was summer icon it was a famous brand peach ice tea. On tv the ad started at the beginning of June and ended just at the end of summer.
Even if I was a big fun of their tea I was sooo happy to recreate something similar at home to enjoy during my english summer.
What happened until now? Well, a lot of things that kept me away from my little English food blog, and I could stay here and list all of the boring things (or excuses if you want) but I won't do that. Instead, I will share with you one main news, and it's here next to me while I am writing.

I discover the banana bread since I started work as pastry chef here in Uk. Ok, I knew the name and the shape before from other bloggers but I never really gave to much attention, not sure why.
Well, I miss a little bit. The banana bread it is now one of my favorite thing to eat for breakfast, with a layer of Nutella or peanut butter and you can carry on your day!
When I say "panna cotta" most of the time the answer here in Uk will be "what?".
Panna cotta it's one of the classic Italian dessert that you have to try at least once in your life. Milk, double cream and gelatin are the main ingredients, add your favorite flavors and your fantasy and voila' panna cotta will be in your fridge.
For this recipe I used blueberry yogurt as well to give an intense berry flavor and elderflower cordial (one of my favorite English thing!).
If you say "polenta" in my Italian house they will think about a savory dish. Mainly something like a polenta mash and a strong tomato sauce on top with sausages and mushrooms everything homemade of course. I know that with polenta flour that basically it is cornmeal, can be use in so many different recipes in a savoury but also in sweet way.
Ok, maybe I was the only person in this world that didn't know about rice krispies treats! I knew the cereal bars those you buy at the shop but definitely not that you can make them at home and that are super yummi and super easy!!
