Fall is most certainly in the air now, and on that note, I thought I’d give y’all one of my favorite Italian recipes – one that everyone should love. And to finish off a great dinner at home? How about a blueberry lemon cake? Have a great October, everyone, and as always, Bon Appetit!  

Last month, my sister-in-law had a car accident. It was not her fault, as she was simply cruising a straight road, innocently (albeit, dreadfully) headed to work on a Monday morning. But other than to law enforcement and the insurance companies, the person who was at fault really didn't matter. All three of the people involved were hurt, one of which was serious.
