Bio: I am Lovey. A nickname my husband gave me many years ago. (Remember Gilligan's Island?) I come from a family of foodies, my father being the greatest influence. As a first generation Italian American, my father rediscovered his heritage and began an amazing culinary journey by which all of our family and friends were the grateful recipients of. Almost all of my siblings are hardcore foodies and now my adult children as well love creating in the kitchen. It is a large part of who we are together and as individuals. Moving to the South almost 30 years ago has enriched and broadened every area of my life... Food, friends and faith~ all adding a richness to my world with the greatest being my faith in Christ Above all my faith has sustained me through the ups and downs of this glorious life!
