I’m an entrepreneur at heart and have multiple interests. Because of this, I have a number of Web sites and blogs.
To simplify the process of letting people know more about them, (I didn’t want to have multiple business cards!), I decided to make a central spot where you can find out about each one. This is your map to find it all.
If you are here looking to follow my Garden Blog, use the “Minnesota Gardening and Birding” link below and “follow” me once you’re on that site. Otherwise you’ll be following this hub page which is not a very interesting follow! ;)

I am interested in hosting hands-on Italian food classes/food experiences, and/or cooking vacations.
If you are a foodie interested in Italian cuisine and you’re interested in participating (locally, nationally, and abroad), please sign up for my emails. When I plan a trip or tour (or a partner of mine does), you’ll be the first to know.
I love to cook and I maintain a Web site where I share recipes from my Italian-American heritage.
I also make all-natural seasonings, dry mixes, and extracts that are available in my Web site shop or in my Etsy shop.
Italian-American Recipes for the Modern Kitchen
Easy, delicious recipes based on the history of cooking with my own Italian family*, where the kitchen is truly the heart of the home.
*(My family’s roots are in the central part of Italy in Roma and the region of Abruzzo, which is in L’Aquila.)
I enjoy digging in the dirt and watching the antics of my backyard birds. Occasionally I do some freelance writing. My garden writings have been featured nationally in Birds and Blooms and the American Meadows blog, and locally in the North Twin Cities’ publication, Seasons and Generations. You can Read more about my garden and birding adventures on my blog.
Paula’s Garden Patch
Come wander through my garden; the gate is always open.
I love the things of yesteryear. I love a good antique or vintage bargain and scout them out regularly at auctions, sales, and thrift stores. You can find all kinds of wonderful vintage things for sale in my Etsy shop, Paula’s Vintage Attic.
