I am an almost 30-year old living in Boston with my pug Ginger. I come from a large Italian family who grew up in Long Island, New York. I love and cherish my family very much and enjoy cooking with them when I visit home. I am the oldest of 5 children. There is Mama Dukes, my step dad Bill, brothers P.J. and Michael, and sisters Victoria and Sabrina. Regardless of our busy schedules, when we get together, anything goes. There is never enough food. There are many delicious recipes that have been passed down to me from my Nonna, Grandma (RIP), Mom and step dad. I hope to share some of them here with you in the near future. All of the recipes I share here with you here have a story and I want you to know it.
