My name is Rita. I’m a 31-year-old full-time mom, part-time blogger based in Tuscany, Italy, with a strong passion for cooking and gardening, together with all things art-related (apart being a mother, wife, housewife and blogger, incidentally, I’m a textile conservator…). I live with my husband Mario, the official photographer of the blog, and our 5-month-old son Lapo in a small flat with a pretty large garden in the mill town of Prato. Although I’m a true city-dweller, I run my house as if I lived in the country, growing my own fruits and vegetables the best I can – job and family permitting – and turning them into homely, easy recipes (though yes, I do hang around markets and supermarkets, because it’s really impossible to grow everything your own – what about rearing hens and cows? Mmm…).
I believe in simple cooking, the kind everyone can try and appreciate without being chefs, only gourmands. Because anybody can successfully cook: you just need a little passion and a lot of patience!
