Panna Cotta A Traditional Italian Treat Perfect for Spring
I love making Panna-Cotta especially in the Spring and Summertime. :)

It's such a simple - sweet treat, open to all kinds of variations.
I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with, but first try the traditional. Enjoy!

(The pictures are not as clear as they could be, because of 2 reason...Bro pointed out I did't have it on SFlower or close-up and I was holding stuff and taking their pictures.)

I made this, a couple weeks ago. At first, hubby looked at it like it would bite him - then he tasted it, and loved it! (Me, too!) My daughter is coming over for her birthday dinner in a couple of days, and I can't wait to make it for her, too. I'm going to serve it with a bit of fresh, strawberry freezer jam. Sooooo good!
