For thirty years, I lived in the Great State of New York. Home was a little town about twelve miles north of New York City. My husband Rey and I are blessed with two wonderful children, who left New York to follow their careers. So after several years of being empty nesters, we decided to retire even though we are a few more years shy of the U.S. official retirement age. Along with that came the decision to give up our beautiful home, spacious kitchen, and lively perennial garden!
Rey and I now live in the Sunshine State of Florida. We moved not so long ago to the beautiful town of Wellington in Palm Beach County. Over a recent family dinner, I was telling my children about how I missed going to the fish market in New York’s Chinatown for fresh seafood and Di Palo’s Fine Foods in New York’s Little Italy for Piave and Buffalo mozzarella. My daughter’s response was, “Mom, your food scene is over.” So I decided to create my own food scenes in Florida!
This is dedicated to my family and friends, who from time to time have asked for my recipes. Now I no longer have to say, “It’s a secret!”
Thanks for stopping by — our door is always open!
