    I had a movie marathon the other day and one of the movies I have watched as Under the Tuscan Sun...I so loved Dianne Lane and her character, but most of all I so loved Italy. So much that I am craving for Italian dishes, I am not talking about pasta or gelatto but I think I am craving for something more....Enter this focaccia recipe. Talk about coincidence. I talk about good food! Yummy! Thanks for posting ;)
