I was born in Beckley, WV back in the 70's. My paternal side is full blooded Italian an my maternal side is everything else. My fondest memories are when I would spend my summers in Philadelphia with my great grandmother who cooked traditional Italian dishes and always had me fattened up for those long WV winters.
I've traveled and lived all over the US and now reside in the small town of Ashland about a half hour outside of Dodge City, Kansas. I recently retired and now have plenty of time indulge in one of my favorite activities which is cooking.
