Marian Ann Battaglia was born in Monroe, LA, to a large, loving and lively Italian farming family – the 12th of 13 children. She grew up on the farm, where she helped with all aspects of the Battaglia family enterprise. She worked side-by-side with her sisters in the kitchen and became a most excellent cook of Italian and Southern dishes. Her well-loved and highly sought after recipes have been shared by family and friends, far and wide. Ann also worked in various retail positions over the years.

She never married or had children of her own. The central focus of Ann’s life was her cherished family.
