It was actually my husband who came up with the name; when I asked him if he could sum up my persona in one catchy title, he didn’t hesitate to dub me “Bossy Italian Wife.” I fell in love with the name!
I am a fourth generation Italian-American and after many years of trying to grapple with the duality of my “American” identity, I am proud of it. I love to celebrate my ancestral heritage of being Italian while also celebrating my American-ness.
Food is an amazing way to connect with culture and share that with other people. By cooking foods that connect with both the American and the Italian experience (and ones that cross into both territories) I feel I am able to share aspects of my personality with my readers, and hopefully they are learning something too!
As I cook my way through this awesome life, I am learning a ton, screwing up a little, but always having a great time inside and out of the kitchen.
Of course food is just one topic that we cover here at Bossy Italian Wife--I am not afraid to tackle any issue from sex and relationships to social and societal issues. I welcome debate, robust conversation, and a healthy appetite for food and life!
Thank you for reading Bossy Italian Wife!
