I’m Alyssa- a food enthusiast and full-time blogger. My husband, Jason, and I moved our little family to Venice in October of 2013 and were eager to learn about the local restaurants.
I started the Facebook group Venice Foodies to connect with our new community and hear real reviews of restaurants in Venice without the potential bias of major review-sharing sites.
As the group grew, I began watching others swap recipes, inspire heated debates on pizza, and see the passion that food can bring out in an individual. I’m excited to be a part of it, and I hope this blog inspires you to cook and dine out to your heart’s (or your stomach’s) content.
In addition to reviewing local spots, my blog will include personal thoughts from me on various topics including my role as a work at home mom, health struggles with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Borderline Personality Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Hypothyroidism, Lymphedema and Type II Diabetes. My health struggles have haunted me for decades but I refuse to suffer in silence anymore. Join me in my journey to claim happiness with who I am instead of letting these illnesses hold me back from living my best life.
