Creating A “Mangia” Moment At Home

I have always dreamed of visiting Italy. From the historic landmarks and ancient ruins to the wine and FOOD, this country really captures everything I love about travel.

Until I do set foot in Milan, Florence or Venice, I will have to make do with a little piece of Italy here in the states. With a bit of creativity, romanic decor and a lot of help from Bertolli, I can dine like an Italian in my own home! A “Mangia” moment, if you will. 🙂

I love moments like these with my husband after the kids are in bed. It provides us the opportunity to talk, laugh and connect – and the best part is that we didn’t have to spend much to do it. Dates at home are greatly underrated!
