I live in Israel with my husband and baby daughter; Ya'ara Kinneret. I'm an artist, but firstly a mom- so that means my work has been put on the back burner for the past 8 months (since Ya'ara was born). So I've found a different artistic outlet- in the kitchen! I've realized I really like to cook; it lets me express my creativity and, more importantly, feed the people I love. I've been a big fan of recipezaar since I discovered it over a year ago. Thank you to all the great, upbeat cooks who "live" here; for your inspiration and wisdom, and for the sense of community you give this site!
