Growing up with an Italian mother, delicious home cooked meals were just the norm in our house! At first, my interest was in recreating my mother’s Italian dishes: pasta bolognese, cauliflower pasta, chicken piccata, etc. ¬†Over the years, I broadened my cuisines with Hawaiian, Thai or Chinese inspired dishes. These interests all came together when I became interested in photography to become a true lover of food, photographer, and a self proclaimed amateur chef.



I live and work in Manhattan so needless to say I’m spoiled by the diverse, plentiful and (often) high quality food of the city. When I’m not eating my way through the Big Apple, I am a data analyst in the healthcare field. My goal and hope for my blog is always to inspire others to make delicious food in their kitchens to enjoy and share with others and learn some things along the way! I also pride myself in being able to make amazing a lot of meals totally vegan or dairy-free.
