I am a 40 something-year-old of Italian and Irish descent, who was minding my own business living in Pennsylvania until I met the LoveOfMyLife, Rob. These days you’ll find me living in South New Jersey (moved here for love) with (the LOML) Rob, our 2 teenage boys who floor me on a regular basis, and our dog and 2 cats. I grew up a 3rd generation American in Northeastern Pennsylvania in the 1970’s surrounded by love and a large extended Italian-American family. Our region was rich with ethnicity: Italian, Irish, Polish, Russian, German and Ukrainian (to name a few) and traditions. It is the foundation for the landscape of my life and I’m truly grateful for it. I’ve spent my life loving the adventure of food, cooking and recipes.
