Early Days in Italy! Liz is on left, and Anna is on the right...
Hello friends and welcome! Many authentic Italian recipes were handed down to us from our beautiful mom Maria, (who happens to be the great granddaughter of the once Baron and Baroness of Italy) and this blog is our way of saving her precious recipes before they disappear.
We are two sisters born and raised in NY, now living in separate states; one in NY and the other in the South, Charleston. Before we were born, our parents lived in Capri, Italy, home to where our mom learned her culinary skills from some of the greatest chefs in the world!
Anna, (on the right) is a wife, mom and grandmother to 3 adorable grandchildren and loves to cook quick and easy "family-style" meals that are practical and simple to do. You'll notice she is NOT very fond of using a ton of salt or sugar in her recipes, but she LOVE's to cook with WINE, and sometimes adds it to the food!
While I (Liz) loves creating healthy low calorie, low fat and even some Gluten-Free dishes. Together we will be creating a wide range of delicious recipes, tips, and healthier versions of our mom's dishes with easy-to-find ingredients.
Let us inspire you. We promise it will be fun and delicious!
Enjoy, and Buon Appetito!
This is our beautiful mom Maria who has always viewed cooking as a way of showing her affection to those she love.
