Unpopular human AU: Italian Lapis Lazuli
Guys, hear me out!

She looks and acts quiet and respectful but if you get on her bad side she’ll go Angry Italian™ on your ass

SUPER protective over her loved ones that if you even touch them the wrong way she’ll kill you

She can go to the beach and tan perfectly (She’s probably a lifeguard)

She also lives in the north end in Boston most likely, and when it’s no longer beach season, she works in a little cannoli shop as a cashier

Bakes WAAYY too many pitzzalles in her free time (like seriously, what are we gonna do with all of these??)

so yes, Italian Lapis AU is the best human AU confirmed.


In this enchanting book, Claudia Roden returns to the countries of Turkey, Lebanon and Morocco in search of new and old recipes and to find out how cooking has evolved since she first introduced us to these cuisines in the 1960s. The result is a tribute to the different culinary histories and contemporary food of these fascinating countries, from the mezze dishes of Turkey and the sweet pastries of Lebanon to the unmistakable flavours and spices of Morocco. In her inimitable style, Claudia Roden has created a passionate, evocative book full of stories, memories and delicious food.
