About me

Occupation Food Editor
Location New York, New York
Introduction When I was a Girl Scout, I got my cooking badge by making a cookstove out of an empty coffee can turned upside down and set over a "burner" made of a tunafish can packed with coiled corrugated cardboard soaked in paraffin. I cooked pancakes. (Makes a great, perfectly round pancake, by the way.) Anyway, let's just say that I've been earning more and more complicated cooking badges ever since. I have edited, tasted, tested, or created a ridiculously large number of recipes in my life, most recently at the wonderful Hallmark Magazine (now defunct), where I was the food editor. While there I wrote a blog and got bitten by the blog bug, so here I am. And here's a bunch of other stuff I've done. (photo by Lisa Vosper)
