Hello! I'm Sammy

Hello friend!

It's lovely to meet you

Hi! I’m Sammy, and I am so glad you are here. I am a BIG foodie gal. I am one of those people who lives to eat, rather than eats to live. If you are like this too, you’ll love it here. I am a mom to two young boys who are basically hungry 24/7 so there is never any waste in this house. I grew up in a pretty big Italian family. They were all born in southern Italy and moved to Canada years and years ago. Growing up I always watched whoever was cooking. Whether it was my mom, my dad, my grandparents or my aunties or uncles. Anyone who was cooking, I was watching (and taste testing). Homemade pizza, pasta, fresh bread and lots of wine was always being served to anyone who walked through the door. As I got older I started replicating things in my own kitchen. Are the dishes as good as my Nonna’s? Nah, but I do try. I love to create nostalgic Italian dishes (especially pasta), but I also love to whip up simple and quick recipes for my family. Hopefully my page inspires you to do the same. Thank you for being here, and happy eating! SammyLearn More...
