Where do you live and what is your family's origin?
We live in Brooklyn, NY, in a neighborhood called Park Slope. It's a beautiful area with old brownstones, cute boutiques, a great restaurant scene and a fabulous City park.

What do you do for a living?
I am a licensed real estate agent, and freelance writer. I just got a chance to write ten restaurant reviews for a new magazine that's launching in 2008. Being paid to eat - I don't know if it gets much better than that!

Where do you get your culinary inspiration from?
My Grandmother is a wonderful cook, and I spent a great deal of time with her, in her kitchen, while I was growing up. Her cooking is Italian - American, and there was always a feast to be had at my Grandparents' house. My Grandpa is no slouch in the kitchen either - he makes amazing fried chicken and potatoes, and for some reason, toast always tastes better when he makes it for me.

where did your blog name come from and why did you start blogging?
Well, I think my blog's title, My Husband Hates Veggies, probably gives readers a pretty good idea as to what they can expect when they first stumble upon my blog. My husbands food idiosyncrasies have provided myself and his friends with years of entertainment, I figured - Why not share it with the world?

Whats your favorite thing about cooking?
Well, I am pretty much obsessed with food. Its on my mind about 85% of the day. Cooking just give me more time to spend with it! Seriously, I think there is something so nourishing about a homecooked meal, that goes beyond the nourishment our bodies get from the food itself. My favorite times are when my dinner table is filled with family and friends, and everyone can sit for hours, and never worry about paying a bill.

Besides cooking what is something you like do on your spare time?
Other than traipsing around NYC? I do love to read, especially the classics. Embarassingly, I watch entirely too much bad reality television, and my husband and I are a bit obsessed with video games.
