I live in New York City and work in Commercial Real Estate. I love to browse through recipes and read through cookbooks. I also love the theater, hiking, music, entertaining-to name a few! My favorite cookbook is one from Barefoot Contessa-I have prepared many of her recipes; they are easy to prepare and come out nicely. I also love to watch Foodnetwork TV when time allows! Pet peeves? I live in NYC and my kitchen is really small. I would love to have a huge kitchen-that is my only pet peeve! Would love to have one month off to prepare all of the recipes that I have clipped over the years!
