Where this all began

I was raised in an Italian family so I grew up around a lot of food and being in the kitchen often. I started cooking at a very young age and want to share the same experience because they created some of the best memories.

I have learned many things in the kitchen from my Italian Nana and my Dad who owns two restaurants on Fisherman’s Wharf,  Cafe Fina and Domenico’s on the Wharf.  If you visit Monterey, check them out- especially if you love Italian food and seafood! 

I live in beautiful Monterey, California with my husband Matthew and two daughters Gianna and Mia, and there is no place I would rather be. I’ve turned my passion for cooking and baking into a career and I’m so glad I can share them with you all.

My favorite part about this job is I can be a a full-time momma at home at the same time. Food photography is a new passion of mine so I love taking all the photos for my recipes in my kitchen. Living a happy healthy lifestyle is just as important to me as eating good food. 

There are several recipes on my blog that can be made by little ones (with some help of a parent, of course)!  Thank you for being here and following along!
