I am the former social media manager and editor at Foodista. Cooking and baking hold a very special place in my life- both creative ways of sharing and celebrating my life through food. Growing up I loved to follow my mother around the kitchen, asking questions, spilling things, eating, eating, and eating. And today, I'm still calling her for recipes, creating my own, exploring food in any way I can, and writing about it. I also write my own food blog at CanYouStayForDinner.com.

mango chicken

I can't tell you the number of times I've sworn off chicken forever. Thinking, in a fit of what I like to call "cooking block," that there are simply no more frontiers to explore...

I fell in love with falafel in Paris.  My best friend, studying at the Sorbonne for a semester, took me to a little cranny of a place near the Latin Quarter.  I had to wonder what French...

Sixty Days of Baking

In the past year, I've lived in four states. Before moving to Seattle, I was working in the art department of film production. Shuffling from Boston to Philadelphia to Hamden, Connecticut. In the...

Since I was a tiny baby...scratch that, I was never a tiny baby. Since I was a venti-sized baby, I've been baking. I know, impossible. A newborn with a whisk? Sometimes I wonder. But it's...

salad

I've recently read a few articles describing gluten-free diets as trendy. Heck, The Daily Beast added gluten-free food to its list of Top Ten Biggest Food Trends of 2010 , right alongside coconut...

July 25, 2010

As a cook, I go through food ruts. Those times when not even Emeril can convince me that a generous sprinkling of "BAM!" will resuscitate my flat-lining passion for chicken. I simply can't kick it...

July 11, 2010

I'm in love with meat eaters. My boyfriend, my parents, my friends- all of carnivorous persuasion. And me? A meat eater too, but without that same level of attachment to the animal at each meal....

bacon salad

Admittedly, Seattle isn't the hottest place to be in the summertime. It's quite different from the summers I remember growing up in Massachusetts. The ones where the humidity wraps around...

July 1, 2010

It's difficult to toss around superlatives when it comes to food. Too many delicious dishes to consider. But I feel confident in saying that food that has been grilled is among the best. Burgers,...

June 27, 2010

I adore cooking. The sights, the sounds, the familiarity of my stove top. The simple sashay from chopping on the counter to tossing ingredients in the pan is a move that is ingrained in my muscle...

June 24, 2010

You could call me salad-centric. A voracious vegetable eater. Just scanning through the photo files on my computer, I'm bombarded with billions of rainbow-hued bowls filled with the farmers market....

June 20, 2010

Let's try an analogy: Dads are to beef as bees are to honey. Either that makes sense to you or you're considering what my SAT verbal score could have been. When I asked friends and acquaintances...

June 17, 2010

When you grow up in a strictly vegetarian household, tofu and tempeh come to feel like siblings. At times odd and off-putting, but a part of you nevertheless. Meat becomes the intimidating neighbor...

Just when you thought you'd heard enough about Iceland this year, I'm here to tell you another tale. Fortunately this one does not involve volcanoes or cancelled flights. This past December, I...
