This cookbook has been a labor of love. In December of 2011 my younger sister Ami passed away suddenly. In the year that followed, I found it therapeutic to spend time cooking with her amazing kids – Marisa, Natalia & Enzo. I wanted to pass onto them the recipes that their Mom and I grew up with, along with some new creations I’ve grown to love as time has passed.
These recipes have been passed down, discovered and adapted. As I started building this book for the kids, my friends and family shared their excitement for the final product too! So, after years of compiling, I’m happy to finally share our favorite dinners and desserts with all of you as well!
