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.

Our happy home – Dana Point

Napoli with Anthony Bourdain

There is something so charming about the Campania region (where my mamma is from) and Anthony Bourdain captures the essence of Napoli (and its food!) like no one else…
