  • The Teaneck Farmer’s Market

    Today I took a trip to the local Farmer's Market! I live in and have grown up in a beautiful town called Teaneck. Teaneck is a large town just 15 minutes away from Manhattan located in Bergen County, New Jersey. It is a pretty quiet town with lots of parks and nice tree lined streets. We have a huge diverse Jewish community and I am lucky enough to live just a few blocks away from all the kosher restaurants located near and around West Englewood Avenue. I often walk down by ...
  • Salsa De Molcajete

    Ever since I have been cooking my two culinary idols were Guy Fieri and Marcela Valladolid. They are the people that inspired be to get in the kitchen and start cooking. They also taught be to be proud of my cooking.  I learned from them that I should not be embarrassed and that cooking really is cool.  I have been fortunate enough to have met both of my culinary idols. I met Marcela a few years ago on the set of "The Kitchen". It is filmed not far from where I live so my ...

  • Food Photographers Who Inspire Me

    Since I started food blogging, food photography has become my other passion. Now, I equally love food photography as much as I love cooking food. I have really invested in advancing my food photography by buying professional camera equipment and tons of props. I am seriously addicted to buying props and currently have a growing collection. Also now that I post weekly, I am constantly practicing my food photography skills.  I now enjoy looking through cookbooks, magazines, and websites ...

  • Seed & Mill

    This summer I attended ICC's Teen Camp for the second time. Last year I took the Culinary Class and this year I ventured into the world of baking and pastries in their 5 Day Pastry Class. One of my days there my mom and I went to Chelsea Market after camp. (Being there brought tons of memories back from the day we filmed Chopped.) We came to check out a cool shop called Seed & Mill.

  • Meet Katsuji Tanabe

Lucky for me, I became very friendly with one of the judges,  Naomi Nachman, and she let me taste ...
  • The Silver Platter By Daniella Silver and Norene Gilletz

    The Silver Platter by Daniella Silver is one of my newest cookbook obsessions! It is jam-packed full of over 150 plus flavorful recipes.  As I looked through it the first time, I felt each and every recipe was something my family and I would love to make and eat.  I literally didn't know which to make first. Each recipe has a reasonable amount of familiar ingredients with a short list of step by step directions to make the dish. Whether you are a novice or an experienced cook, ...
