Welcome to Tales of The Italian House Wife!

This is where I share my passion for good food, active lifestyle and creative and healthy twists to traditional Italian home cooking.

My name is Jennifer and I’m a first generation Italian living in one of the most beautiful, multi-cultural & bustling Canadian cities. In 2010, I married my best friend: A first generation Sicilian Italian with a hunger for home cooking and a very healthy appetite.

After a health scare in 2011, I made it my mission to recreate those rich Italian dishes into healthy,  nutricious and wonderfully tasty spin-offs of the old classics we grew up with.

I blog about my daily life as a “housewife”, my endeavors in the kitchen, my online business and whatever other adventures come my way!

A Couple of Fun Facts

  • At 6 months shy of 30 years old, I never thought I’d be a housewife. Heck, I never thought I’d even be married! I don’t regret my choices and where life has brought me one bit! I’m lovin’ it!
  • I may be a housewife, but I earn my keep! I’m currently the owner of a fairly new and successful eBay store where I sell designer handbags and accessories. Ladies love their handbags apparently.
  • My cooking is inspired by none other than my grandmother. I have many memories of her cooking as a child and many of her recipes just “stuck”. I revisit, modify and alter her recipes in her honor! She may no longer be here to enjoy them but her memories live on through her food.
  • English is my second language. Kindergarten was hysterical, I was the only “foreign” kid in the pack.  Having said that, I still speak Italian more than 50% of the time. Often, hubby and I converse in Italian when we can’t get our message across in English!

Thank you for stopping by! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!
