About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Marina. I live in Brooklyn, NY with my husband Dave and our little boy Jacob! I started this blog in 2011 as a way to remember, rave, and be proud of my efforts of learning to cook. I have completely fallen in love with cooking and I hope you enjoy my blog as much as i enjoy writing and cooking. I will occasionally be writing about my favorite products, baby Jacob, and motherhood as well! Suggestions will always be welcome and thank you for reading!
