Early early forties and living in Northeast Ohio – a few miles southeast of Cleveland, to be exact. There’s a thriving food scene here, and I’m eager to chronicle it. Moved here from the Capital Region of New York State (just north of Albany) in Spring 2013. I’m a New Yorker, born and bred.
I have always loved cooking and baking (especially), and was organically trained in culinary skills by my talented and resourceful mother. My enthusiasm for food and cooking began with a simple gift from my mother when my sister and I were small – an Easy Bake Oven. Which she never let us use. She denies this. That frustration made me what I am today.
When it comes to food, I am sometimes inspired, sometimes lazy, and just about always hungry. My favorite food is hummus. And I miss NY pizza. A lot.
