I am an busy home cook and cookbook collector. My cooking obsession started as a preschooler sitting on a kitchen counter in Naples, Italy. I learned to roll gnocchi at Miriam's cooking class which I sometimes attended with my parents. I have been lucky to travel quite a bit which has inspired me to always be open to new tastes and experiences. I try to balance my culinary obsession with a desire to cook healthful, economical meals for my three children and active husband.
