Rosalie & FamilyHi, I’m Rosalie and I love to cook!  My favorite pastime is to entertain family and friends with my Italian and Country recipes.

Born to Italian immigrants; my mother from Sicily and my father from Rome, cooking and serving the “family” was second nature for me.  I tell everyone I am 100% Italian and my husband Bill is 100 pounds Italian”¦.mostly because he has to test all of my food. We have three great kids, Scott and his wife Jennifer, Jeff and his wife Tami, and Dana Beth and her husband, David.  Between them we have eleven grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Rosalie & FamilyI live with Bill in Troy, MO and have too many flower gardens to maintain.  I always have a bouquet of flowers on my table.  Our dog, Cappuccino, is our Shih Tzu, and goes to many of my book signings. I am also an RN and work part time at my local hospital here in Troy. Besides blogging, sending out my Newsletters, teaching cooking classes and speaking for various groups, I love church and bible studies.  I once wrote a newsletter called “No Rest, No Rust” “¦mostly describing people like me.    So, let’s have some fun together”¦.I’ll cook, you eat!
