Vovô’s Cozinha

It’s Back to School Time!  I have to admit, I am a little sad.  We have already packed up my oldest and drove her back to her Junior Year of College at University of Florida.  The boys have one more week before school begins and football season is already upon us.  Yes, it is that […]


Happy Monday!  This morning, I find myself thinking about all the wonderful memories this past week has brought.  The summer is winding down for us.  College is just around the corner for the older two and my younger two will starting a new school this year.  It’s so hard to believe that my youngest will […]


By now you all know how much Vo-Vo loves to bake.  This grandma is a baking dynamo! One of her absolute favorite things to bake is Vo-Vo’s famous Strawberry Cheesecake.  She bakes a cheesecake for every birthday party and every celebration.  We all look forward to and  love Vo-Vo’s Cheesecake, it is creamy and just melts […]

I  have to be honest with you about this week’s Sunday Supper event, Valentine’s Day is not a big deal in our home.  What we usually do is cook something together that the whole family loves.  Something that is a little more time consuming than normal BUT totally worth it.  One of our absolute favorites […]


As I write this post, I am scurrying around preparing to leave for the Cookbook Conference in New York City.  I have the honor of speaking at the conference and meeting with some of my friends that I have met through Sunday Supper.  It is a challenge getting everything ready for the conference and making […]

I love traditions.  In our home, they are such a huge part of our holidays.  My children have grown up also loving traditions and love that we make holiday meals at our home special.  There is something to be said about getting out the china, silver and crystal and sitting in the dining room.  We […]

I love this time of year.  The thing that makes this time so special to me is the Christmas Traditions and memories that are made Around the Family Table.  In our home, it the time of year, when we fuss a little more on recipes that we wouldn’t traditionally make throughout the year.  Year after […]
