Welcome to the Food Section of our site.  I have to tell you that food is my passion.  I love food.  I love to cook.  I love to experiment with recipes.  I love to exchange recipes with my friends.  I love to read cookbooks and watch cooking shows.  I love food, and I love to eat.  Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I am 100% Italian.  (Warning – large cloves of garlic ahead!)

I love to cook for my family.  I love to entertain and cook for friends and for family parties.  It makes me so happy when my husband or daughter or guest tells me that what I have prepared is “soooo good”.  That is a great feeling.  Sharing a meal with others is a great feeling.

The recipes I will share with you in this section are only ones I’ve actually tried and like.  Some recipes are from my friends and family, some I’ve gotten from printed material and some are my very own creations.  I will always disclose the source of my recipes and give credit where credit is due.  I’d love it too, if you could share some of your favorites with our team, and as always, I value your comments.

Remember this is my personal, family website.  You will not find tens of thousands of recipes here.  You will find ones that are close to my heart (or should I say stomach) and that I have actually tasted.  Also, I should inform you that I do not provide nutritional information like calories, points, etc.  This is just my collection of food that my family likes to eat.

So grab a cup of coffee and browse.  Hopefully, it will inspire you to try something new for dinner tonight.  And remember to visit often and watch my collection of favorites grow.

 Mangia Bene!    Buon Appetito!
