I am an artsy soul. I love going on different creative adventures, be it trying out a new recipe, experimenting with frosting, making jewelry, sculpting, or really anything new.
My favorite things to cook
I love making chili. It's so rudimentary in some ways, but it's comfort food. I love cooking to make others feel good, and I think foods like chilis and stews are full of love and good for the soul!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Sephardic. We grew up with a lot of different Sephardic/Mediterranean-style dishes like bourekas and boyikos and spanikopita, all hand made, even the phyllo dough!
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered the art of cake baking, I can proudly say. I love trying new adventures in cake making, including frostings and fillings and so far, I've yet to have a mishap!
My cooking tragedies
Doughnuts. Every time I have attempted to make doughnuts, I end up with burnt little bricks of flour. Sigh.
