Because I love to cook.

Because at the age of sixteen, I worked in a convent in the kitchen under the guidance of a retired chef who studied at Le Cordon Bleu. I never became a nun but I did work there for 6 years, put myself through college and could make 15 pies at a time.

Because my Mother is Slovak and my Dad is Polish. Mom would always have a big meal on the table for Dad by 2:00 before he went to work. She would make her own noodles and her peirogis were featured in the local paper.

Because I have friends who are incredible cooks.

Because my kitchen is my creative outlet.

Because my Hubby appreciates every little morsel.

Because I want to share these recipes with  my girls…and friends…and you…

Because food is a gift of love…

I bring you this blog.

Thanks for stopping by! Please leave comments and share the love!

    I love your reasons of “Because” and that food are a gift of love. I always say, food are like tangible love that you can pass around and it makes everyone and anyone happy. The layout of your blog is really nice to the eyes and tonight i’m trying out your recipe for Pasta Puttanesca and Apple Cake. I hope they turn out well! Good luck with your beautiful life!
