My parents were both born and raised in Sicily. They came to the US in their late teens, making a home in Bridgeport Conneticut. I learned to cook from both my parents. They were wonderful cooks. My mom could put any ingredients together and come up with a wonderful Italian dish. I'm married with two children. Enjoy being a stay at home mom. A couple nights a month I'll put on a candle show and meet some new people.
