It's finally starting to dawn on me that in just 6 days, I'll be in Easton, Pennsylvania for a three week crash course in ethical biology. Aka summer camp for nerds. There will still be campfire s'mores and ultimate frisbee, but most of the campers will be bilingual and a high enough SAT… MORE

Hey everybody, it's the 4th of July! I live in DC, so it's kinda hard not to celebrate. We've got parades and barbeques as far as the eye can see, not to mention our extraordinary fireworks on the National Mall.

About Me
I discovered this site one morning when I had been craving french toast and the family was not yet awake to help me out. Until that day I had never really known what french toast was made from. I don't think I've been this addicted to a site since my childhood Neopets obsession.
My favorite things to cook
desserts of course
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a french catholic who married into an old jewish family. As such, our holiday meals always consist of matzah ball soup and buche de Noelle; a truly devine combination.
My cooking triumphs
- poaching an egg all by myself - receiving the most praise from anyone who prepared anything for this year's thanksgiving dinner (I made a lovely banana cake) - preparing lunch for the occupants of an abused women's shelter in my neighborhood
My cooking tragedies
Omitting the sugar and doubling the vanilla from a batch of sour cream pancakes. Never has an attempt at healthy cooking gone so utterly wrong.
