<p>I've lived in NYC my whole life. Was born in VA and the family moved back to NYC when I was a week old, so I consider myself a native New Yorker. Dad's family is Sicilian so alot of my recipes revolve around tomotoes. Mom is german/russian jewish and is a fantastic cook in her own right. Has even taken some of dads family recipes and improved on them. My wife is also Italian and we enjoy cooking and baking together and look foward to showing our 2 children how to cook too!!<img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg" alt="" /></p>
