About me

Location New York City
Introduction Welcome to our blog, fellow gourmands! As we set off on this much anticipated adventure, we hope you will join us in serenading these hidden magical ingredients as they transform sometimes mundane meals into little spoonfuls of heaven! The basics - Cooks: Jasmine & Deanna; In: NYC; Occupations: Corporate America BUT True passion: Food. In the Big Apple, making big trips to the grocery store doesn’t quite mesh with our city lifestyle and matchbox kitchens! But when we can muster up the energy to cook for ourselves, it usually ends up being pasta and jarred sauce 3x a week! Let’s face it, pantry ingredients can get boring pretty quick. Well, not to worry! We’ve discovered some pretty awesome ways to turn those old staples into restaurant style gourmet meals! Each week we will attempt to showcase a different pantry ingredient in a new and flavorful way, which any NYC’er with a kitchen the size of a 2x4 can cook up without spending restaurant $$! The goal here is to discover the gourmet potential of simple ingredients! Feel free to share your own recipes, ideas or comments as well. After all, our journey is nothing, if not shared with others that have the same passion.
