Welcome to theBitterSideofSweet. My name is Nancy.

I wanted to write and give you a little bit about myself. I live in a small town just outside of Charlotte, NC. I am a wife, mother and a consumer of food. I have lived in North Carolina basically my whole life, expect for 7 years that I spent in Italy. I am a stay at home mother with 4 children in the home. Their ages range from 13 to 1, so I stay pretty active.

I decided to start this blog so I could talk and share food. For about half of a year or more before I started this blog I was taking pictures pretty regularly and posting them on our Shutterfly account so I could share with my family. As the year went on and I started to read more food blogs I realized that starting a blog was something I really wanted to do.

On this blog you will see lots of sweets and treats but also some other things as well. I am married to an Italian so it is not all sweets around here. We love good home cooked meals so we can share around our table with our kids each night. From time to time you may see some of the places we visit. We go to Italy pretty often and also try to visit some local areas around us as well.

Thanks for joining me and feel free to email me with any questions.
