I'm a home cook who developed my love and passion for food through my family's culture and traditions. Born and raised in New Jersey as a second generation Italian-American, I grew up making fresh pasta, pots of gravy and holiday feasts with my mother, grandmothers and even a great-grandmother as my guides. Now as a wife, I am expanding what I know into my husband's Latino traditions. I believe that every meal has a story; that good food shared with good company feeds not only the body, but the soul. Every week I will post a new episode, featuring either a recipe, a restaurant or a great food story. And of course, there's plenty here to browse through, and great recipe ideas! But this site is more than just recipes, it's the story of the food. Join me as I tell stories from the kitchen table.
