Recommended Reading – “Blood in the Promised Land” by Eliot Sefrin

We love sharing our recipes with you so it’s only natural we want to share a very good book too. Our recommendation for a gripping novel authored by our good friend Eliot Sefrin.

Our book club recently read his 3rd novel, “Blood in the Promised Land”. It’s the story of two men on opposite sides of the globe and opposite socio-economic scales , one the uneducated son of a poor sharecropper in Rosewood, Florida and the other a well educated, wealthy, respected physician living in occupied Nazi Vienna, Austria in 1943. The one thing both men shared was the same injustice of racism and prejudice and their strong desire to improve their situations which ultimately led to their paths crossing.

Our book club enjoyed this book and is looking forward to reading his newest book “Officers Down”.

Both of these well written books can be purchased on Amazon.

Our Journey Begins

Toasting to our first night in Rome, April 2018 at the Piccolo Abruzzo Ristorante, Rome, Italy

Welcome & thank you for joining us.

We are identical twin sisters Teresa & Barbara, who grew up on Long Island, New York and now happily reside in North Carolina.  We were born 6 minutes apart…Barbara arrived first, which would only be relevant if our parents were King & Queen; which they were not, but she never misses an opportunity to remind me! 😂

Italian food is our heritage and cooking has become our passion. Now that we are both retired we rediscovered our passion for cooking. Here you will find our favorite family recipes that have been handed down for three generations along with some new favorites that we hope you will enjoy as much as we do.

About Teresa: After retiring as the controller of a construction management firm, my husband Jack & I moved from the Village of Northport, NY to coastal North Carolina. Our children & grandchildren still reside on Long Island and we go back as often as we can to see them. When not cooking, I still pursue my love of creating fine jewelry in gold, silver, and gemstones along with golfing with friends and playing Mah Jongg.

About Barbara: After just retiring as the Credit & A/R manager for a food supplement company, I accompanied Teresa on the day she moved at the suggestion of my husband Gary. We could write a book on the hilarious adventure during the long ride down, but that’s another story! I fell in love with the community and called Gary to tell him “we” bought a new house in NC! He thought I was joking but 11 months later we moved into our new home. He’s a keeper after 48 years… Our children reside on Long Island and southern California.  I also enjoy creating jewelry when I have the time; however, I’m just not as passionate anymore about jewelry making as Teresa is.
