Amanda's Kitchen

About the Cook

I cook my standards, like pasta fagoli, gimbot, various soups, and stir fries probably once or twice a week. The rest of the time I experiment with recipes from epicurious or various cookbooks. Usually, when I go to the store I'm mesmerized by strange and unused ingredients and end up with a cart full of random stuff I can't afford (especially when I'm at whole foods). My favorite activity is hosting people for dinner or cocktails because apparently I love feeding people. I love anything with sauce and deeply desire a vegetable garden so I can grow my own tomatoes and basil (which is impossible in my rooftop apartment).
