Cooking with Love

with Gianna Conte (Jan)

Welcome to my first food blog!

Hello everyone.  I am a foodie that loves to cook for my husband, who loves to eat. My background in cooking is learning from  a mother who was an excellent cook. I watched her and learned how to turn everyday ingredients to tasty mouthwatering delights. My family emigrated to NY from Bari, Italy in 1956. I taught children and adult cooking classes.

Why title my blog, "Cooking with Love"?

I gave it the title because if you're cooking food to survive, it's going to taste that way.

When I started working part-time, my son came to me one day and said, "mommy your cooking doesn't taste the same". I asked what was so different? He responded that he just didn't taste the love.

When you cook, remember to create the food with love for yourself and the people you are cooking for.
