BEAUTY & THE BISCOTTI
BEAUTY & THE BISCOTTI

Every once in a while I’m surprised by some article or something online about either a long ago acting gig or the biscotti biz that I never saw coming or was notified that I was being written about. It’s strange and gives me a little ego boost, this I can’t deny! Sometimes I need one and this is one of those times. We all have our struggles in life and I’m having the lions share it feels like lately so to see something like this does brighten my day. Correction -no biggie and I’m not going to break the authors stones about it-Rocco’s Dinner Party aired on BRAVO, not the Food Network.

It’s not easy to balance a family that needs me , a small business and a career in the car biz with my voracious appetite to be creative. Sometimes I want to belt out show tunes in the showroom ( I am not a singer) but I think “maybe this  wouldn’t be well received by my peers”. Haha in my head it’s a FABULOUS  idea!  I miss being available to do acting gigs when they come up but lo and behold, Barbara Ann Zippi is filming her pilot season of “Ciao Bella-Living Italian Style” a regional Italian themed TV show in PA that is making it’s way to NJ soon, and  she wants me to do an episode next week on women and business. I was going to get a little therapy but frig it, I’d rather be on TV. http://www.delconewsnetwork.com/articles/2015/04/29/entertainment/doc5540dd1f38b45501528151.txt

Lemme tell ya a little something about Barbara Ann Zippi. She and two of her friends about 4 years ago said “hey, let’s do an Italian Festival in the park!” well the first year they had 50 people show up, the 2nd 10000, and the 3rd it grew to 15000 attendees !! So I’m pretty sure she will make this show a success. If three “little Italian ladies” can do it and make their dreams come true, I’m not going to give up hope yet!

Who am I even kidding? I never give up hope. I’ll give up hope when I’m dead. Anyway stay tuned, We’re going to film next Tuesday and I can even bring my beautiful Bella with me. She’s gonna say no, but I’ll drag her with me anyway. These years go by so fast and if I don’t force her sometimes to hang out with me , I fear my days are numbered until she’s like 25 or something.

Bella’s Biscotti Wins Best Biscotti of South Jersey!

bellasjbellasj2Woo Woo! Can I tell ya? I was sooooo excited when the editor in Chief of South Jersey Magazine emailed me to give me the good news! So to whomever voted us the best of the best-I humbly thank you. I’m sitting here with Tamer, my webmaster, feeding him lemon blueberry and he tells me that “these are not biscotti, they’re dessert, they’re something the devil gives you before you give him your soul”.  I’m going to take that as a compliment and can see it goes with the article’s sentiment that they’re “sinfully delicious”.  I REALLY APPRECIATE THE HONOR. As Sally Field said-You like me! You really like me!! hahah.

Medford Lakes woman and her home star in crowd-funded film

By Alexis Sachdev, Staff writer

Natalie Stone is the archetypal Italian mom. The proof is in the pudding. Or in her case, the Caesar dressing.

In Stone’s Medford Lakes house, she recently fed a visitor a Parmesan-drenched homemade salad, cannoli cheesecake and hoagies, most likely an experience that wasn’t too far off from how she treats any other guest who crosses the threshold into her home.
