Yes I Have The Accent…
You are probably on this page because you want to know a bit about the person behind the blog! Thank you for taking an interest in myself and my blog! On this page you will get to know a little about me, “A New York Foodie”!
I am based in New York City and have been blogging for a few years now. I have become quite popular within the food blogging community and I believe in eating foods with lots of colors, as they are the healthiest. While I try to cook as healthy as possible, I in no way substitute flavor. I have a live audience most nights where my cooking skills are tested, as my husband and younger son get to sample everything that I make!
Besides blogging and cooking, I am also interested in computers, history, genealogy and many other subjects.
I am a native New Yorker, born and raised, and as it says above, I certainly have the accent, a very strong New Yawk accent, but I wouldn’t be a New Yorker, without it.
I have always had an interest in food but have absolutely NO formal training. I learned to cook by watching my mom and grandmother who were both fabulous cooks, but had a very limited menu. I love watching the Food Network and other cooking channels, reading through many cooking magazines and learned a lot of cooking and techniques through that. I am also not afraid to try anything when it comes to cooking and I do a lot of experimenting. If I can get the ingredients, I will try and make the recipe!
I absolutely love fresh fruits and vegetables and rarely uses canned or frozen. The colors of the fresh produce are so vibrant and alive with vitamins and minerals that are so good for us. We should definitely “eat foods with lots of colors”! That pretty much has become a motto of mine!
I am a collector of cookbooks and have close to 100 books in my collection, especially since I am in contact with publishers who sends me cookbooks for reviews.
My favorite foods are Italian, Latin and Southeast Asian and Middle Eastern, although I do love most types of cuisines.
If you have any food and/or recipe related questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me as I love to interact with all of my readers!
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
