Welcome to my kitchen on the web. Let me clarify something right up front. I seldom cook, not
because I don't know how, because I do--my Italian mother made sure of that--but because I don't
have to. You see, my Polish hero/husband is an awesome cook.

So why do I call this page
Anna's Kitchen?

Because I love to eat. And I wanted to share with you recipes that would allow you the opportunity to
enjoy the adventure of exploring authentic Polish and Italian foods--foods that will delight your senses
and express the heritage of these two great countries.

So, as the Italians would say,
"Buon Appetito!"...Enjoy.
and the Polish,
"Jedzcie, pijcie i popuszczajcie pasa!"...Eat, drink, and loosen your belt.
