Very good hot chocolate! It's not overly sweetened like some hot chocolate mixes. Also received it very quickly. Definitely recommend

An Italian Girl's Kitchen - I love to cook and create seasoning mixes for my own kitchen. Now you can get them for your kitchen!

I started this shop to share my love of Italian cooking. When I cook for my family and friends, I often times am asked for a recipe. That's what motivated me to share my most popular in the form of the products you'll find here. They are staple ingredients and basics in my own kitchen; my go-to items!

I'm a true Tuscan cook. I was certified in Italy in 2010 after a week-long, hands-on cooking class with chef Sandra Rosy Lotti at Toscana Saporita Cooking School -- truly a fun and inspirational experience!

I continue to look for ways to share my Italian heritage through my recipes and easy-to-use extracts, seasonings, and mixes.

I hope you enjoy the items you find in my shop. I do hope they make your cooking a bit more adventurous and your life a little easier.

You can find Italian recipes and information about cooking classes on my Web site

I also love vintage and antique finds. If you do also, browse my other Etsy shop,

    I am a 3rd generation Italian-American. I love to infuse all my cooking and baking with an Italian touch and lots of love. Here I share some of the things I use in my kitchen -- you would find them as staples in my own pantry!

Welcome to my shop and 'virtual' kitchen! I'm thrilled you are here.

Being Italian, my 2 favorite ingredients are love and passion. They make for the best dishes! I strive for excellence, simplicity, and I personally test all my mixes to be sure that they will perform well when you receive them.

Have a look around and enjoy purchasing items that are made from all-natural ingredients; good for you and delicious too. No funny sounding ingredients you can't pronounce -- no msg, no preservatives, low- or no-sodium.

All products are made in a smoke-free, pet-free environment. They ARE prepared in an area where wheat, dairy, egg and tree nuts can be found.

You can find kitchen-related vintage housewares in my other Etsy shop!
