Hello and welcome to The Recipe Wench!
We are Jeff and Bridget.
I love to cook and Jeff is always looking for an excuse to take a photo.
After a brief stint in Germany, Jeff and I returned to Italy with our dog, Heidi, while our two beautiful daughters and one brand spanking new son-in-law live in the States.
As new empty-nesters, we promptly added to our family. Meet Thor! His father weighs in at 100+ pounds. Thor has been very busy growing every day!
It was a proud moment when our daughters expressed an interest in cooking (finally!) and asked me to start compiling the recipes for some of their favorite dishes.
The idea for this blog started to take shape as I was pulling those recipes together.
We hope you have as much enjoyment cooking the dishes as we do.
We’ve lived in Italy for a total of 12 years now. So many amusing tales and characters! Every day is, literally, an adventure. Buckle up and ride along with us!
And now please meet the other members of our family —
And son-in-law, Zach —
Come back and visit us soon!
