Cooking is and has always been one of my favorite things. I love to experiment new recipes from every place in the world. Being Italian, when I just married I was cooking mostly Italian dishes. Then I moved to the USA and learned to make the most wonderful pies and cakes. In my opinion American cooking has the best dessert recipes. I grew up in Lima, Perù, and there I enjoyed eating delicious Peruvian dishes which I still like to prepare for my family. With shelves full of cooking books, now that I discovered how to find all different sorts of dishes here in Internet, I hardly look at my old books...but once in a while for nostalgic reasons, I like sorting through my mother's handwritten recipes, or the ones from some good friend that now is far away. I'll gladly share with you any recipes or little tid bits of experience that I gathered through the years. I am a grandma of three beautiful girls that unfortunately live on the other side of the ocean...but hopefully I will be going to the States soon. A big hello to all of you.
