Well, it's here!

I've created this blog to share with you the joys of cooking and baking!  I've been exploring new recipes lately and enjoying every minute of it!

I've been inspired by several people in my life to bake, cook and entertain!  Grandma Dorio taught me to bake and cook at a very young age- standing on the red stool in her kitchen, stiring the dough, licking the spoon, and frying the eggplant!  Grandma Meloney's creamed tuna and tomato soup cake.  Aunt Patty's love for delicious sweets and her tips on how to make an amazingly perfect Cheesecake not to mention helping her decorate cookie cakes!  Rachelle and Nicole two of my friends who have inspired me to learn new recipes and bake like there is no tomorrow. Last but not least, my mom for always making home made meals for our family growing up- my mom is the perfect example of an extraordinary mother and wife always feeding us healthy tasty meals.  Thanks mom for making us eat our vegetables and drink our milk!

Enjoy the recipes, and please let me know what you think if you make something I post about!

Cheers to friends, family and food!!!
