Simply put, I relate to the world and other people through food. My philosophy is this: whether you’re a die-hard foodie or a person who could care less what you put in your stomach, everyone has at least one dish that gets them excited. Get that same person hungry, and even the least food interested individual will wax poetic about the food their mother cooked them growing up or their secret love of Stouffer’s macaroni and cheese.
While food blogs are a dime a dozen these days, I figured it was finally time to toss my hat into the ring. Ultimately, I hope to create a forum that allows me to connect with other people who believe that food is a reflection of values and that eating is a social experience. This blog showcases what I cook and eat on a weekly basis. From authentic ethnic recipes to my mother’s family favorites, I hope this food inspires you to cook for yourself and set out to create some of your own favorite dishes at home.All content and photography by Michael Parlapiano, unless otherwise noted.
