Hi and thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Tina, I am 42 years old and married to a wonderful man named Robert. I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area with my husband and our two pugs, Koko and Lucy and a special kitty, named Trixie.

I am of Italian decent and love to cook not just for my family but for everyone! I have a lot of weeknight dinner guest and try to keep it casual but delicious! My Mom passed away a few years ago and was my great teacher.

In 2012 I have changed the way I eat. A real lifestyle change to be healthier, eat a nutrient dense diet and remove all processed foods, refined flours and sugars from our diet. I do cook a lot healthier than my Mom did and do a lot more vegetarian meals, poultry and fish. I'm trying to find a way to keep the traditions of family, friends and good food in my house always.

I plan to post my weekly menus, update with new recipes, health information and articles and how to eat mostly organic in an economical way. I will also periodically post personal updates of my journey to regain health and hope.

Guess who is back?

Me! The end of 2007 was a bit hectic, computer problems, illness and busy with other obligations. I didn't stop cooking it was just not to many "blog worthy" food post and then I was so far behind it seems more appropriate to just start off 2008 with a fresh start. I have made a commitment to update my blog at least once a week but hopefully more often as time allows.

Thanks for all the emails, phone calls and comments asking me to come back.

Happy New Year to All!!
