We both love to cook and we both love a good meal, whether it is a good breakfast, a tasty lunch, or a delicious dinner. The kitchen in our home was dreadful when we moved in. Some of that was appearance (cheap cabinetry or do-it-yourself vinyl installation, complete with gaps), and some of it was function (a terrible layout and a cook top that was too high). So we developed our own design, selected our appliances, and had the kitchen gutted and rebuilt. It turned out even better than we had hoped and has been a source of a great deal of pleasure and, on occasion, of a few too many calories.

Our cooking and our taste in foods tends heavily to Italian, but overall is quite eclectic.  Some of our recipes are old family favorites that were handed down.  Others are of our own devising, either through imagination or as a result of recreation of meals we enjoyed in our travels.  We have organized some of our favorite recipes as shown in the menus.  We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Buon appetito!
