After a long, energy-zapping week, I was looking forward to a relaxing Sunday with my pug Leo. I told myself from the moment I got up 'today is for me to do whatever I want and nothing else!' Normally that statement never sits well with me because I can always find something to fret over,… MORE

When you're sitting in front of a computer screen for eight hours a day, at some point your mind will wander. This I'm sure all of us know. But WHERE will it wander is the question. With the internet at my finger tips at any given second, it can go many places. And mine always ends up at… MORE

Hey guys, so here I am again, asking for help! My (pregnant) sister in law has made a request for a freshly baked batch of cookies. She saw my tin of Christmas cookies last year and has been asking me for them ever since. I haven't had the time to spend my whole day in the kitchen baking… MORE

Because I am located in NYC, restaurants are plentiful and there are many types of cuisines to choose from. I have recently had the best Thai food I think there is in NYC and I wish I could say I have not become addicted but I can't help it. Pad Sea Ew with pork is so good! For those of you… MORE

It's been four months since my last post and I must admit I have been out of touch. It's been a very busy few months and the craziness is still not over for quite a bit. As you guys know, I got a pug puppy for Christmas and he is now 7-MONTHS!! (training & teething) I don't even know where… MORE

Don't you just love Christmas? There are so many things to look forward to: the jingles on the radio, the beautful decorations on the homes you pass on the street, the gifts that slowly grow underneath the tree, the anticipation of knowing what your loved ones got you, the Christmas cookies… MORE

After long nights of cooking and going to bed late only to go to work the next day and do it all over again, I am finally all "turkey-ed out." I am currently at work typing up a report while  sipping tea and thinking about the delicious leftovers in the fridge I will be devouring at lunch time. MORE

I have decided to attempt an Italian dessert. I have been obsessed with the film Julie & Julia, so much so that I have purchased the movie, the book and Julia Child's memoir My Life in France. I am in the process of ordering Mastering the Art of French Cooking and have been convinced into… MORE

About Me
I love food! But I think that will become pretty obvious to many of you. I'll try almost ANY recipe and will most likely modify it according to my palate as I go. Eating is an adventure and I crave new experiences.
My favorite things to cook
Italian has become the "go to" food for me. I believe it is the easiest and very yummy. But... I am gonna have to go with Indian cuisine. The different levels of flavors within this type of cuisine is extraordinary. I hope to be able to cook Indian food at home and have it taste as good as the local spots.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving. I love ALL of the things that be brought to the table. I transitioned from a traditional turkey to a honey glazed Virginia ham and I have never gone back. I am trying to have a thanksgiving pot luck at my new apartment so that we can all enjoy different styles of food.
My cooking triumphs
I roasted a whole chicken! AND DIDN'T UNDER/OVER COOK IT. Every new creation in the kitchen is a triumph for me.
My cooking tragedies
I over cooked some pork chops because I got caught up on an episode of Pioneer Woman. It was disastrous. Good thing we keep the take out pile nearby and ready.
