Lisa grew up in New Jersey in a large Italian family that owned and operated pizzerias and restaurants and started cooking as soon as she could reach the stove. She honed her skills traveling, watching cooking shows, and collecting cookbooks. She loves to cook easy-to-prepare meals with good fresh ingredients for her family and friends. Lisa has four grown children and lives on the Jersey shore with her husband and cat.
