Why are we here?

I created this site because my doctor (judgy but in a caring way) thought I needed a healthy hobby besides drinking. I thought long and hard about hobbies that fit into my unusual schedule. Piano lessons? Too expensive Sports? Uh, I prefer things I can do from the couch. Thanks. Improv or stand up classes? I love acting but I’m also a bit shy What else do I love doing that I can make a hobby out of? As I shoved a delicious Smoke Shack burger from Shake Shack in my mouth, it hit me. What do I love to do besides drink? Eat! That’s when it came to me. I should learn how to cook, collect recipes, and share it with you. Read more and get a great recipe here

Our Mission

I’ve never been much of a foodie. I love a great meal, but I’m also good with chicken nuggets. My palette is less than refined for sure. I’ve lived in New York City for four years and have cooked four times since moving there. The most elaborate meal being spaghetti and meatballs.

My personal mission was to expand my palate, learn how to cook, and to try new foods and restaurants. I want you to come on that journey with me and my friends. We will try to give you advice and a few laughs along the way.
