My Kitchen

Some new and old family recipes from an Italian girl who loves to cook. Not all will be Italian, of course, as I’m a culturally diverse kind of gal and a bit of a mutt. However, I do love a good wine. That might have to do with the fact that my family once owned a vineyard in Italy. I’ll also have several guest posts for you to mix things up.

If you roll your mouse over the tab above, you’ll notice a drop-down menu of every recipe I’ve posted. I’m still in the process of adding links below, and not all recipes will show up in the drop-down menu unless I create an actual page for them. I do blog a lot of them now, though, so if you’re subscribed, you’ll get an email when those post.
