No one ever believes me when I tell them I'm a real live Florida native. Yep, some of us aren't snowbirds!
Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE to cook! My family is Cuban and Sicilian, so Latin and Italian foods are some of my favorites, but I love to try new recipes and dishes as often as I can... Got a recipe you think I should try? Send it to me!
Some of my other interests are baseball (Go Rays!), wine, eating (hey, it goes with the cooking!), music, travel, and Boston, my cat. I also LOVE zombie shows--The Walking Dead on AMC is one of my favorites, and I'm also into Breaking Bad, HGTV, The Food Network, and The Travel Channel.

Remember when Jake Owen got in a go-kart accident a few weeks back, and crushed his hand? He had emergency surgery to pin his bones back together, and the tip of his right ring finger wasn't healing properly. In fact, the tissue was dying, and doctors removed the last half of Jake's ring finger on Monday!
Jake told reporters that the fingertip was removed just a few hours before he was scheduled to take the stage at a free block party in Nashville, and he was definitely feeling the pain while on stage, but tried not to let the fans know it. Ouch!
