About the Author
The "South Jersey Foodie" is Nicole Pellegrini, sometimes known as sockii. She enjoys life as a writer, artist, webmaster, crafter and avid food-lover living in some of the last vestiges of active farmland in Gloucester County, New Jersey. She shares her home with her partner David, a podiatrist in Woodbury NJ and their six cats: Peanut, Norman, Sammo, Mischief, George and Benny.
I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.

Paella is one of those great Spanish dishes that almost everyone loves, yet not many want to bother preparing at home. With the many ingredients needed and large traditional paella pan, it seems like a difficult and complicated dish to assemble.
Winter White Pork Chili is a recipe I came up with while working my way through all that fresh pork meat I ended up with this Fall. We’re still working hard on enjoying it all – and enjoying it we certainly are! We’ll likely have another porker ready to butcher in a month’s time so I’d better start clearing out more freezer space.
Pasta is one of my favorite comfort foods. Sometimes when I’m too tired to cook a long, elaborate meal or don’t have time to defrost any meat, it’s great to be able to prepare a satisfying, delicious meal from ingredients in my cupboard. One of my absolute favorite pasta comfort dishes is Tuna with Garlic, Lemon, Capers & Olives.
