Hey there! I'm Lori!

Hi everyone! My name is Lori Murphy and I have been blogging at Josie + Nina for about a year. My site is named in honor of my two Italian grandmas and it’s where I feature modern food with a touch of Italian old school cool. Growing up, I moved all over the country so I have a love of regional foods but always add a hit of Italian flavor and style :smile:.

I live in the Chicago 'burbs and am excited to get to know all of you!


Welcome Lori! I just had lasagna last night and was thinking how I need to up my Italian cooking/eating game. :slight_smile: Glad you’re here.

Lori! So good to see you over here! Mmmm, Italian cooking. I’m hungry! :slight_smile:

I didn’t know you lived in Chicago. We’re practically neighbors!

Thanks Bethany! Ooo lasagna is one of my favs! I hope to have a post this fall :smile:
