Simply Romanesco

Hi, my name is Dana and welcome to my blog. I grew up in Transylvania, Romania. So, if you’ve heard about Dracula then you know where I’m from.

I love food, eating good food, buying food, cooking food, talking about food. Basically, anything food related gets my attention. So, this blog is about my passion – food. I’ve always enjoyed good food and was used to eating great food thanks to my amazing grandmother. I’ve always loved to watch my grandmother cook and go through her recipe notebook. But I didn’t know how to cook until about three years ago. In fact, I didn’t even know how to turn on a stove. How sad is that? Now, every time I go to Romania, I not only watch my grandmother cook, but I also cook with her. How amazing is that? I enjoy every minute of it. Every time I return to the States, I bring with me new recipes from my grandmother, which I am eager to try on my own.

Besides food and cooking, I love to travel and explore new cities and restaurants. In this blog, I will share with you my favorite recipes from my favorite celebrity chefs, cookbooks and food magazines, as well as recipes from my childhood in Transylvania, Romania. I will also provide suggestions on restaurants and food selections from our travels and our beautiful Pittsburgh. At the end of the day, I hope that my blog will put a smile on your face and give you some good ideas on what to make or where to go for dinner tonight.

I look forward to receiving questions, comments and suggestions. Please feel free to contact me via e-mail at

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
