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!
