About Mangia Michelle
I am Michelle, the creator, writer, photographer and taste-tester for Mangia Michelle. I am not a trained chef, cook or baker. My days are spent teaching middle school. I am also a full-time mommy (to Emme and Joey) and wife, and a lover of Italian food, wine and culture. My earliest culinary training consists of hanging around my Pop Pop’s kitchen when I was a little girl. I spent a lot of time observing and tasting his recipes. I was always first in line with a large piece of bread to dunk in his sunday sauce, and I always made sure that I got the first taste of meatballs and braciole. No one really had a chance against me anyway 😉 As I got older, I started to watch countless hours of cooking shows. And when I say countless hours, I mean COUNTLESS hours. This was all pre-kids, of course. My social life was a bit dull, but I learned a lot, cooked a lot and ate a lot. Now I want to share the fruits of my labor, and my dull social life, with you.
In my blog you will find a lot of recipes that were inspired from from my Grandfather, trips to Italy, and other beautiful parts of Europe, as well as my own original recipes. I am always thinking of new things to make in the kitchen and my hope is to share them with you.
Please feel free to send me a message with any questions, comments or suggestions.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog and trying out my recipes.
