Hey Y’all, I’m Dina the author and recipe creator for The Foodie Chick!

I live in Tennessee with my husband, son and our 2 Goldendoodles. I enjoy cooking and sharing fresh food made easy. Growing up in an Italian American family, food equaled love. I can remember from a very young age cooking in the kitchen with my parents and grandparents. We had many gatherings whether it was a Sunday dinner, holiday, or just any excuse to get together and share a wonderful meal with family and friends. Food represented an emotional connection and recipes were handed down from previous generations and adjusted through the years to a more urban way of life. We tend to purchase ingredients instead of growing them or we have shifted our diet to a lighter, healthier, and faster version from our ancestors. I hope you bring these inspiring dishes to your table and share the love with your family as I have with mine.
