I honestly think that maybe God intended for me to be Italian, because I am most comfortable in the kitchen. There's nothing I love more than cooking, eating and entertaining at home; having a table full of loved ones who are laughing too loud and drinking a little too much.

This blog exists to make up for my gold fish memory, a repository of everything I love from recipes to holidays to coffee haunts and entertaining at home. It's where I will go to look the good things up when I'm wrinkled, decrepit and old.
