✬Be what you would seem to be, or if you’d like it put more simply: Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.✬

My name is Joni.

I have many loves in life.






Anything Vintage

Friends and Family

My love for cooking started when I was just a little girl, in my grandmother’s old kitchen, standing next to her on a chair making homemade egg noodles, and loving every second I got to spend with her. My mom and grandmother taught me the basics when I was very young, and I’ve kept those lessons with me my whole life. I love to share recipes and make food for friends, family, and even strangers. It always makes people happy and it brings people together.  Food is love. (Was I Italian in a past life? I think maybe I was)

I’m in my 2nd year of grad school right now, studying and working very hard to become a professional adult. How fun does that sound? Can I just cook all day and share my food with the world? Only in my dreams  I guess.  Since this is my dream, can I also have Meryl Streep’s bakery from the movie It’s Complicated? And a pony.

And world peace.

Too much?…okay moving on.

Anywhozer, this is my second blog. My other blog is http://missjoniblog.blogspot.com
