About


I am a first generation American of Italian Immigrants who came from San Giovanni Rotondo, Italy. We have five wonderful grown children whom I have tried to remind of their heritage by cooking Italian food and baking Italian cookies. I have been baking for over 50 years and love to share my creations with family, friends, neighbors, doctors, etc.

My daughter, Janet, from Sarasota is an amazing artist who sells many of her works and bridal design shell bouquets on Etsy (http://magartsypartycrafts.etsy.com). She introduced me to Etsy as an outlet for my cookies. I now sell beach wedding favors together with my other cookies.

I really enjoy creating new cookies. As an example, I developed a white chocolate/macadamia nut biscotti for my grandaughter's wedding which is a favorite of many people. (I baked over 1500 cookies for her cookie…

I really enjoy creating new cookies. As an example, I developed a white chocolate/macadamia nut biscotti for my grandaughter's wedding which is a favorite of many people. (I baked over 1500 cookies for her cookie bar). Recently, I created a Key Lime Madeleine Cookie with a Key Lime Glaze which is a real winner with Key Lime Lovers.

I worked as a Dental Assistant and Office Mgr. for my Dentist husband for over 35 years. We treated Disney, and other theme park and hotel guests' emergencies, which gave us so much satisfaction. Families were able to continue having fun with their children and save their vacations. However, my husband developed a handicap and we were forced to give up Dentistry and retire. Now I am able to devote all my time to my other love - baking my cookies!!!
