Under the Tuscan Sun Cookbook - Frances Mayes in Atlanta!

 Frances Mayes was at the Atlanta History Center last night, sharing stories about Italy, food, friends and life at Bramasole.    
 Of course the new cookbook was on sale and I was lucky enough to get one of the last books, which of course I got autographed last night.  I couldn't wait to get home and share some of the stories with my husband and my son.   
Now I'm ready to go to Italy, oh yes, and of course cook!
