Originally from Connecticut, I now live on Long Island. I am happily married to my wonderful Israeli husband. I have 2 boys, aged 12 & 10. We also have a sweet pet boxer, who we love very much In my spare time, I am always in the grocery store, looking for new and exciting ingredients to come home with. I then go online and look for a new recipe to try. My favorite cookbooks are usually collaborations of favorite recipes of members of different organizations; synagogues, churches, schools etc.
