Although I am Italian, I love to cook many different foods. My husband and I had a very successful restaurant in our small historic town and we would do many different specialty night. I had a chef, but most of the menu items were things I have grown up eating or have made throughout my life time. I love entertaining and feeding people. I have two young grandchildren who I enjoy. Cooking runs in the family. From the time I was born I remember going to my "nonna's" for Sunday Italian meals. Homemade everthing. She and my mother and aunt would spend hours preparing the food.
