40 Awesome Recipes to Summon the Sunshine We’ve been having one of those days where it’s cold and rainy but also sunny at the same time. It’s a horrible trick. Rude almost. I’m done with the wind and the rain. I’m ready to hold onto that sunshine. I don’t know whether or not Scotland will deliver, so I’m going to turn to my kitchen . If we can’t have real sun, at least maybe we can put some sunshine on a plate. Or in a glass, as the case may be. 

Here’s 40 awesome recipes to bring some sunshine into your life, whether or not you’re getting any out your window.

Eating Out: Osteria Del Tempo Perso

Osteria Del Tempo Perso has definitely become my favorite Italian restaurant in Glasgow. All the flavors are deep and rich. Every dish I’ve tried has been great. Plus, it’s located in the heart of the city centre, just off George Square, so it’s easy to access for a week night date or long lunch.

Osteria has the potential to be very expensive, but if you order off the set menu, it’s quite affordable, especially for the quality. Lunch is the best bargain if you can manage to get there on a weekday afternoon.

I’ve had many great dishes here, but my favorite is definitely the spaghetti bolognese. If a restaurant can’t make the basics outstanding, there’s no point in bothering with fancier dishes. The pasta is cooked absolutely perfectly, and the flavor developed in the sauce is deep and delicious. I never want to stop eating it.

Geoff had the lasagna this time. It’s layered with cheese and the same rich bolognese. It’s a classic done absolutely perfectly.

We also had dessert this time. They make a different version of ricotta cheesecake each day. We opted fr white chocolate this time, but they also had mango that day. This is a no-bake, fluffy confection. I dare you not to like it.

They also have a selection of wines by the glass or bottle, a few of which are quite affordable. 

I love simple Italian food, and Osteria Del Tempo Person does it perfectly. Go check it out. I promise, it’ll be awesome.
