And it begins

I pride myself with my cooking and throwing parties. I love to cook for my friends and family. Taking old school recipes and throwing a twist in it is what i love to to. Most people think I'm nuts because of the amount of food i make but its a joy for me.

I learned how to cook from my mother. My fondest memories of my childhood is spending time with her in the Kitchen, listening to Bobby Darrin..."splish splash i was takin' a bath!" then i'd toss the Mopina (aka wash towel) into the sink to splash her. I have an old photo where i must have been 3 years old rolling meatballs with my Nonna. My family and childhood revolved around the kitchen and food.

Through this blog I invite you into the kitchen of a modern day Calabrese Girl. Most of my cooking does have its Italian roots but don't be alarmed if i toss something from left feild in there. Being a successful hostess is one of my joys. In this blog you will find some of my Masterpieces and (unfortunately) Epic Fails. Lets just hope I don't burn down the kitchen in the process...
