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.

I love making homemade pizza, especially coming up with new and interesting pizza flavor combinations to try when certain vegetables are at their peak and can be showcased for a wonderful and unexpected meal.
A Summer Squash and Tomato Recipe That’s Fast and Delicious!
One of the best things about living in Southern New Jersey is our farmers, and the wonderful array of fresh local fruits and vegetables available every Spring through the Fall. I spend many an afternoon driving from one small farm stand to the next, planning my meals around whichever garden delights have just been brought in from the fields that day: gigantic ripe tomatoes, sweet white corn, juicy white nectarines or peaches, eggplant, asparagus and more. With so much available that’s fresh and delicious, summer especially is a wonderful time to enjoy vegetarian meals that are super fast and extremely healthy.
