I am a designer in New York City. I love photographing food and then eating it. :D I have ran 2 marathons and am training for my third this year.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking anything and everything from cakes and cookies to bread and pastry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a Jewish family, but since I am a a vegetarian, I don't eat half the stuff that is traditional. Instead, I love cooking recipes from other cultures, mostly Middle Eastern and Asian.
My cooking triumphs
This past year I baked 8 kinds of cookies and 2 loaves of babka in my tiny tiny NYC oven that only has one rack. They all turned out delicious. :D
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at baking Challah bread was awful. They turned out soggy and underbaked. I also had a difficult time preparing eggplant rollatini for my boyfriend...the first time I cooked for him. It was very embarassing.
