I was born and raised in New York but now live in the Atlanta, GA. area. I come from a large Italian family and needless to say, something was always cooking in the kitchen. It was here that my passion for baking evolved and my love for cooking. My Mom, grandmother and aunts were such wonderful cooks and I learned much from them. I hope you enjoy and will try some of the recipes here. My website is now becoming a new passion of mine, too. When I am not baking or cooking, you can find me in my garden. Lavender roses are my favorites. I also love Romantic, Victorian, Cottage and Country French decorating.
