Hi friends!

My name is Alessia Velocci, a.k.a “Smidge”. I have a rewarding and fulfilling career as an Educational Assistant, teaching and supporting students with multiple exceptionalities. I am also the co-owner of aVd Events Inc., a wedding and event company based in Toronto and the GTA.

IMG_0401bwMy love for food and cooking was inevitable coming from a big, loud and crazy Italian family. Born in Abruzzo, descending from a long line of home cooks, who mastered their own unique dishes respectfully.  I’ve learned from the best! I am a work in progress, and by no means call myself a chef.  I am simply a wife who loves to experiment in the kitchen and explore new and challenging recipes from other “foodies”.

I happily admit that I love to eat. I make conscious, clean choices most days. But now and again, I treat myself and indulge in some guilty pleasures. No shame. Put on the stretchy pants. Embrace my food baby. I like food!

This blog is an extension of my daily adventures in food, dining and life. I hope to share my own recipes and experiment with others that I love. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy!
