About Me



My Name is Shari:

I am a mother of two kids with moderately-limited palates and wife to a husband who eats to survive.

My wedding china, after never-having-been-opened for 14 years, was put on Ebay and sold!

I used to be a NYC carry-out junkie, a Fresh Direct “Chef’s Table Member,” and a sucker for bento-box-like meals that can be cooked in under 15 minutes.

I was once completely kitchen-clueless but, I’ve slowly evolved into a confident cook from all my (mis)adventures through my mom’s famed recipes.

I hope you join me in this self-prescribed food journey that’s been chock-full of emotion, frustration, laughs, enlightenment and plenty of blunders.
