Hello and welcome to She Loves Biscotti !
She loves biscotti is about sharing good, simple food with people that mean the most to you. It 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.
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 32 years!) and mother of two awesome kids (no longer kids but still awesome) and soon to be grandmother!!!
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.
On that note, I am very grateful to my own daughter, Sara P., for her help in editing and proofreading posts since the blog’s conception in 2014. Her ideas and insights about recipes, picture composition, and directions the blog should take, as well as her ongoing support and encouragement, have greatly contributed to the blog’s success over the past years.
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.
