CASAGIOVE, Recipes & Notes for a Happy Home

Sometimes things don’t work out the way you thought you wanted them to… and that’s okay. The process of trying to open a market has taught me a lot and helped me to push myself and grow in ways I didn’t think possible. In fact, I realized that the true heart of Casagiove California isn’t the physical market, but rather, connecting with you about food and family… 


Want some ideas for a simple, yummy dinner? Here you go! 

Want to know my favorite type of product? Sure thing! 

Want a recommendation for this or that? You got it!

Want to come over and practice making something together? Please do!


 I want to inspire and encourage you to prepare meals for your loved ones and more importantly, to make time for eating together. I want to provide a space for exchanging ideas and being creative. Stay tuned for a revised version of Casagiove California that focuses on recipes and notes for a happy home. I am going to keep it really simple— just a recipe and some notes, every now and then. Most recipes will be informal; there won’t be a lot of exact measurements or steps because cooking doesn’t need to be exact. What it does need is love, along with a little bit of time and intention. I’m hoping my recipes and notes will bring you to the table and connect us to one another in a lovely way, as it has done for my family.

La mia mamma

My mom, Rosa Giuseppina Ianniello, was born on July 2, 1938 in the small town of Recale, Caserta in the Campania region of Italy. She is an incredible woman who has endured more tragedy than most, but you wouldn’t know it from the big smile she still greets everyone with to this day. Growing up […]

Stuffed Zucchine

Some of the tastiest meals are those that are loosely improvised from an initial recipe “inspiration” and this version of Stuffed Zucchine is just that! As we improvised a lot based on what we had… we invite you to do the same! Did you know…. here in the states we say “Zucchini” but the original […]

Salsicce e Patate

I like simple food.  In fact, many of my favorites are things my mom would make when she didn’t have a lot of ingredients and needed to whip something up really quick.  I can still remember the first time she made this classic and I love putting my own spin on it for my family. […]
