I live in Brooklyn. I like to make things, especially in the kitchen. I try to be adventurous in eating and in life. I think Americans need to make a better effort to eat nutritiously and responsibly. I think eating and cooking should be fun. I'm pretty sure I could win a drink a gallon of milk contest, but I've never tried. I never met a dumpling I didn't like. My husband and I grow vegetables in our tiny Brooklyn backyard, brew beer, and do our best to cook up a storm.
