My name is Anna Maria and I live in NJ with my husband. We have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren. I am Italian-American and thus have inherited my love of cooking from a long line of great home chefs, so most of my recipes will have an Italian spin to them since that is what I know best. In addition to cooking, I love to garden when the weather is nice. I am lucky enough to have a huge vegetable garden at my home and I grow tons of fresh herbs and veggies all summer long. I also love to spend time with my big, Italian family!
