Donna from The Slow Roasted Italian-Food Blogger

Hi!  I’m Donna the author of The Slow Roasted Italian.  I am writing to you from my favorite room in the house, my delightful kitchen. 

My kitchen is where the heart of our home beats.  It is where I dance with Em (my 2 1/2 year old daughter) early in the morning while Chad is getting ready for the day.  It is where we gather for family dinners and talk about our day.  The kitchen is where I plan and prepare fabulous meals for my family and explore culinary pleasures with them. 

I love cooking for my family and friends.  It is such an expression of love to create these amazing meals for them and I delight in watch them dig in.  I have many passions in my life: my family, friends, food and music.  It is much better when they all come together.  I absolutely love hosting parties for my family and friends with great food and music. I have found that I would prefer to be in the kitchen cooking and making sure everyone is having a good time rather than mingling at a party.  This passion for family and food has led me to the creation of this blog.

Well a little more about me: I am a spicy Italian born in New York.  I grew up in the sunshine state and then was transplanted to the Southwest where I met my best friend and husband 15 years ago. Although I miss my family, I can’t imagine life with anyone else, anywhere else.  I fly around with my head in the clouds.  Chad is my Earth, the Yin to my Yang, he grounds me.  Then there was our munchkin (our daughter) she completes our universe.  She is our sun, she lights us up and most days our life revolves around her.
