About Me...


Welcome to my cozy little corner of the web!

I've had a love affair with food ever since I can remember.

Being Italian, cooking and eating amazing dishes has played a huge part in my social/family life, and cultural heritage. Here you'll find traditional Italian cuisine mixed  with good ol' Midwestern USA cooking.

I started this blog partly as a hobby, partly as a memoir/way to keep track of my favorite tried and true recipes, and partly for all those who want to learn to cook and have requested my recipes. 

Enjoy, and mangia bene!
