I was born and raised in New York and come from a large Italian family. Needless to say, something was always cooking or baking in the kitchen. This is where my passion for baking evolved. I do professional baking for people, have written a baking cookbook and maintain a website and 4 blogs. Three of my blogs are food related. I have a baking blog, Italian cooking blog and a cookie blog. I enjoy posting recipes and it gives me great pleasure to do so. My specialties are cheesecakes and Italian cookies. Many of my customers are originally from New York and crave the cookies and cheesecakes. And of course, it makes me so happy baking it 'specially for them. My hope is that my desserts and cookies put a little sweetness in their life.
