Hello and welcome to She Loves Biscotti !
She loves biscotti is a personal food blog where you will find some of my favorite recipes. Some of these favorites are based on my Italian cultural heritage and others are just fantastic recipes I’ve collected along the way. She loves biscotti is about sharing good, simple food with people that mean the most to you.
A little about me:
My name is Maria and I’m the person behind this blog. I am not a professional baker/cook, writer or photographer. I’m just a gal, living in Montreal, working full-time, married (same amazing guy for
29 30 31 years!) and mother of two awesome kids (no longer kids but still awesome).
When I’m not talking about food, I’m either making it, eating it, sharing it or thinking about it. I’m a professional dietitian, who had the privilege of being born to Italian immigrants…so you know food is important to me! I created this blog so that I could document, organize and share some of my favorite recipes.
For years I watched my mother host parties and welcome family and friends into her home, and one thing always stood out to me: food brings people together. No matter who you are, where you’re from, or where you’re going, I learned that the simplest of meals eaten with family and friends is the beginning of a lifetime of memories. And if you’re the one cooking that meal, start with fresh, wholesome ingredients, a simple recipe and you can’t go wrong! My mom was my inspiration and that’s why I cook and bake.
I am proud to say that my blog is a family-effort, as well. My daughter, Sara, edits all of my posts. She has also taught me how to edit my photos, and every once in a while some coding 🙂 It makes me proud to know that my mother inspired me into loving food, and that now I’m inspiring my daughter in turn in exactly the same way!
I hope that the simplicity of these recipes will inspire you and bring you and your loved ones closer together at meal times enabling you to create some memorable moments.
