If you’ve stumbled upon this blog, chances are you share my love for food. Welcome! I’m Stef, a twenty-something Canadian food journalist with an Italian background. I’m a newlywed and love to cook and bake for my husband Alex, our families and friends. Alex and I live in a 120-year-old house with our goldendoodle, Stella. We do our best to be foodies in a small town while still eating healthy meals with fresh ingredients. My greatest kitchen inspirations are my mom and Nonna, but I love me some Paula Deen and Ina Garten. My friends think it’s weird that I get so excited about things like beef stew and roast chicken, and I think it’s weird that they go crazy over my basic lasagna or veal parmigiana.
When I’m not in the kitchen, I’m reading and writing, working on house projects, walking my dog and taking photos. I love trashy magazines and reality television, tea and cookies, good wine, shopping and fashion and most of all, spending time with my family and friends. I aim to eat well, drink well and live well. Thanks for visiting!
