I love to cook for family and friends and use them as my guinea pigs! This blog is for anyone who loves their family and friends and wants to make their stomachs happy!

And…. just in case you were wondering….the idea of the wooden spoon is to honor my late, great Aunt Josie.

I learned a lot and inherited my love for all things culinary because of her.  My mom was great, too, but she never chased us around threatening us with her wooden spoon like Aunt Josie did!  We knew she loved us and would never really use it on us, but we shielded ourselves with pillows just in case!

    Hey Claire,
    Just saw your post for a group about Jersey City and I checked out your website. I wanted to say hi and tell you your pizza recipe sounds delicious. I will try it with my sister. We love to try new recipes together and serve it to our families.
    Take care,
    P.S. You still have that Jersey City sense of humor!!! =)

    Hey Claire =)
    Just got your comment (somehow got stuck in my spam comments). I’ll try the roux next time. I’m still exploring a lot of new cooking techniques and can use all the help I can get!
    Thanks again!
