Smile New Member - Hi everybody

I love cooking and I am glad I can still cook most of my italian recipes even if I live in the US now. It took me some time but now I found all the places where I can find authentic italian ingredients or their equivalent. I am also very interested in learning American or any other country recipes and I am sure I will find a lot of precious help in this forum.
Stay healthy,

Alessandra

I will be very happy to share my itlian recipes. I know this is going to be fun. My parents (they live in Italy) put up a great website about the region I am from and it has a lot of recipes and curiosities www.pm-news.net
I will probably build one myself one day.
Alessandra

Siiiiii FORZA AZZURRI!!! (eheheh, Cara, we got another fellow azzurri fan )
So you lived in Gaeta, a little to the south from Rome, not so far away at all!! (We have been to some beaches near by, not so far down though... Ostia is close but not nice at all...)

You must know Rome pretty well, too.. did you like it there? I am here for AMORE I share my life with my Roman sweetheart Cristiano whom I met initially over ICQ. And you... how did you end up in Georgia?


Se ti va di chiacchierare in Italiano, mandami un email o PM mi faresti piacere!! solo che non sia una cosa molto simpatica continuare a chattare qui con la lingua strana agli tutti altri!!

Hi!
I "know" your mom through the internet!
I was the ring leader of a recipe group that she belonged too.
I feel like I already know you and your very beautiful daughter!!

smiles, Trish

Wow

It is a small world!!! for those who don't know here's my mom's website www.pm-news.net ...lots of recipes!!!

to pdswife: it's incredible! My mom still talks about you guys and the Seattle ring...

to cara: did you say that she was right about not speaking another language in the forum? (just checking my german...lol).
I absolutely agree I guess we just got a little carried away.

to URAMANIAC13 : yes I know rom very well...and guess what? I am in the States for the same reason you are in rome...
