Why do I love cooking Italian food?

I just can't help myself... Because I am Italian!

Well, both of my parents are Italian. They were born in Italy and immigrated to the United States.

I'm Maria, and I was born in upstate New York, but my heart and soul feel like they were raised in Italy.

When we visit family in Italy, it feels like I belong there, and I love soaking up all things Italian while I'm there.

I love cooking, for myself and for others. Italian food is in my blood and it is my passion.
