In reviewing Cooking Carbone I come to realize that posts in 2012 were slim. Hmmm, same year I opened a Facebook page. Other excuses are, we were busy tending my garlic crop and a successful garden here at the ranch. I was also getting used to my first full year of "some what" retirement from the world of ice cream. I'll take a stroll down memory lane 2012 to see what I can come up with in terms of dining and cooking experiences. In the meantime here's one of our prized Italian eggplants we grew at the farm in Washoe Valley.
