A few times a week I go to my local health food store and get a fresh juice made from carrots, beets and ginger. I don't have a juicer so I decided to make this into a salad. I make this salad several times a week, its raw, sweet and crunchy with a little bit of bite from the ginger. I used baby beets and carrots and tri-color corn. You feel good after you eat it, knowing that you ate something thats not only tasty but very good for you. —sdebrango

I have loved to cook for as long as I can remember, am self taught learning as I go. I come from a large Italian family and food was at the center of almost every gathering. My grandfather made his own wine and I remember the barrels of wine in the cellar of my grandfathers home, I watched my mother and aunts making homemade pasta and remember how wonderful it was to sit down to a truly amazing dinner. Cooking for me is a way to express myself its my creative outlet. I enjoy making all types of food but especially enjoy baking, I live in Brooklyn, NY, and I share my home with my two dogs Izzy and Nando. I like to collect cookbooks and scour magazines and newspapers for recipes. I hope one day to organize them.
