After much anticipation, I finally watched Chef’s Table Pastry on Netflix. I waited and waited and waited for the April release date to finally arrive, and then when it finally did my husband went on a bunch of trips and told me I had to wait for him to watch! So here we are. We finally watched! (Don’t worry, no spoilers here!) The first episode features Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar. As I learned more and more about her history and her work and her preferences, I felt like she and I were the same person!

I’ve started setting my 2018 goals, and I’d love to hear your goals for the year! Share them in the comments! Continue Reading
I feel like I’m still processing that Thanksgiving is over, and it already feels like Hanukkah is right around the corner! Now, I know sufganiyot, or jelly donuts, are the traditional Hanukkah treat (I learned this from a Sesame Street Hanukkah video I used to watch on VHS as a kid), but my tiny apartment kitchen doesn’t allow for frying.
