"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles." -Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn’s favorite dish! Spaghetti al Pomodoro
It’s no secret that Audrey loved to cook and she loved pasta. She would have pasta once a day and spaghetti al pomodoro at least once a week. In her son, Sean’s memoir, he shares the recipe his mom used. The ingredients taste so fresh, I was very happy with how my “Audrey adaptation” of the dish turned out. Very easy to make and requires no supervision once the prep is done. Yummy!
Peel and dice a small onion, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 carrots, 2 stalks of celerity; chop and put in the pot. Add 2 large tins of Italian pelati, or pre-peeled Roma tomatoes, and half a bunch of fresh basil, washed, leaves whole. Add a long drizzle of virgin olive oil and simmer on low for 45 minutes. Turn off and let rest at least 15 minutes. Serve over 1 box of pasta cooked barely al dente (still a tiny bit of snap at the core) with lots of fresh Parmesan (must be Reggiano) and the other half of the basil, well washed and cut with scissors in a cup or glass to prevent bruising or blackening.

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.” 
-Audrey

Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future. -Audrey

The letter our lovely Audrey wrote to Tiffany’s on their 150th anniversary.

Dear Tiffany,

A thing of beauty is a joy forever

That is why the lustre of the art of Tiffany’s remains undimmed.

For 150 years your name has stood for beauty

                                                              style

                                                              quality

                                                              and constancy

You have brightened our faces with your jewelry,

illuminated our homes with your lamps

brought a glow to our tables with your silver

given distinction to our lives.

You certainly have to mine by inviting me to breakfast-how many can say they’ve had coffee and croissants at Tiffany’s-a memory I shall always cherish.

Happy Birthday, dear T.,

with love-but also with envy, for after 150 years you don’t have a wrinkle-but then, class doesn’t age!

Your devoted friend,

Audrey Hepburn
