Back in Person
Back in person with people I had only met via Zoom for a week of writing – yes please! When I am not working on my performances or music, I am a mother and grandmother, a wife, and many other things. Like a lot of people, I wear many hats.
What a time!
What a time we had! This October, I had the pleasure of attending a Focus Event hosted by none other than Sheree Spoltore.
All recipes are from Aunt Lena’s Cucina, Anne-Louise and Aunt Lena’s very own cookbook! A.L.’s motto when it comes to food is Eat to Live and Live to Love, and that’s the underlying message of the wonderful collection of Italian-American recipes included.
Contact Anne-Louise to inquire about getting your very own copy of Aunt Lena’s Cucina.
