Early Days in Italy! Liz is on the Left and Anna is on the Right...
Hello friends and welcome to our blog! 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. Both of our parents as well as our two brothers were born in Italy. We are first generation American and we are the ones to pass down her legacy.
My name is Anna, I'm married to my best friend, have 4 amazing kids, and three adorable grandchildren. Long ago I've learned how to cook "family-style" meals for my family that are simple and easy to do. I'm not too fond of using a ton of salt or sugar, but I love to cook with wine, and sometimes I even add it into the food!
My sister Liz loves to create healthy and Gluten-Free dishes and since healthy cooking is very important to us, we do our best to keep them lower in fat and in calories.
So with that, we hope you'll join in with "our adventures" in the kitchen, with some good food, good wine, and some stories. And, we thank you sincerely for stopping by!
Enjoy, and Buon Appetito!
