and Breakfast

From Nonna's Chair to a Modern Kitchen

Now available on Amazon!

ABOUT THE BOOK

A modern cookbook inspired by Sicilian roots and Nonna's teaching, filled with drawings, photos and inspiration.  Joanne brings humor along with practical and time-saving techniques to old-time deliciousness.  She began this journey at age five in her grandmother's ranch kitchen during the 1950's.  Now, surrounded by modern technology and time-saving electronics, she retains the value of slow-cooking when the dish requires it, and demonstrates the short-cuts and time-saving ways to create the old recipes while still having a career, raising children and being a busy, modern adult in the 21st Century.  Joanne shares the fun and rewards of cooking with her readers.
