The Mediterranean diet and lifestyle have greatly shaped my life. One of my earliest memories is of spending hours at my grandmother's house next door making pasta. When I got older the Italians that lived in the court behind my house taught me how garden "the old world way". My grandmother made her own sausage and salamis which her brother turned into a family business called: R. Perri's & Son's Sausage it is still widely distributed in New England.
I currently live about an hour outside of New York City in a very rural horse town. My family and I have an organic garden and orchard. We also keep bees, make our own maple syrup, and do cool projects like build canoes. We cross country ski in the winter and hike everyday with our dog in the woods near our home. In the summer we try to get up to the Adirondack Mountains as much as we can to hike, camp, and tool around in our boat… we live a simple nature oriented life.
I have had many careers. I worked for years in retail for Macy's department store and Paragon Sporting Goods in New York City. I ran one of the first "environmentally friendly" stores in the country and I was a buyer for a health food store. When I suffered retail burn out I went back to school and became a high school English teacher. My goal now is to synthesize what I've learned from my experience in these seemingly diverse fields into a practical advice blog that will simplify your life and put easy to make healthy food on your table.
