Guest-Chef

The two most important things you should know about me: I’m newly married and I LOVE to cook. I delight in experimenting with new recipes, new cuisines, and new ingredients. I read cookbooks in bed and rarely make the same thing twice. When the urge strikes, I also bake. I strive to cook healthful nutritious food. Sometimes, I end up making peanut butter cups. It’s a balance. My goal is to make my recipes accessible to everyone who likes to cook and loves to eat. My husband and I keep a strict kosher home; meaning that, all my recipes you will find on this site are kosher.
