My Cooking Philosophy

Cooking does not have to be scary—or time-consuming, perfectionistic, expensive, or difficult. There are a lot of misconceptions about healthy food, but luckily there are many more fast, simple, inexpensive, delicious, and fun ways to prepare nutritious food at home.

For me, food was the gateway to a better life. Once I started changing my eating habits, everything else started to change, too.

I learned most of my cooking skills in a small New York City kitchen with little counter space and only the handful of pots and utensils that I had room for. And like many New Yorkers, I didn’t have much time. That’s how I was inspired to learn what I call healthy modern cooking: a way to create easy, nutritious, and tasty meals in short order.

One of my cooking principles is that I almost never follow a recipe as-is. I read it once, get the needed inspiration, and then prepare my own simpler, faster, and, often, healthier version with whatever ingredients I have on hand.

I don’t always state exact amounts in my recipes, since I consider them jumping off points for learning. I leave space for using your own creativity so you can experiment and feel in control of your mealtime destiny!
