Mon Food Blog: Ottawa based. Always a good read. I like it because he posts simple, often intriguing recipes and has been recently inspired by a trip to Italy. Much but not all of his blog features Italian cooking.  He includes his own tweaks and touches and often a little back ground history of a recipe. Great resource if you are looking for something a little different in the Italian arena. Recipes such as Celery Soup, Toasted flour Soup and Onion, Almond and Cinnamon Soup and Turnips with Green Olive Pesto pique my curiosity for sure. Comfort food pasta and sauces abound and the photography is excellent. Happymouth.ca
