My name is Christina Arata, and I’m in love with 3 things; my husband Dave, my kids, and food. I grew up in southern California and moved to NY in 2001 to attend New York University, met the aforementioned hubby, and wound up on Long Island.
We married in 2009 and got right down to making kids. Sofia was born in December 2010 and baby David was born September of this year, a full month before his due date of October. Before the kids, I was a high school French teacher, but left my profession to be a full-time mommy. Nothing has been more fulfilling or more of a challenge. A big part of this blog is devoted to my ideas and questions about parenting. I don’t have the answers, I only have what I’ve learned from the plethora of mistakes I have made.
I have always loved food, probably more than one should openly admit. Dave has tried to convince me to share my recipes since the first meal I made him and strong armed me into this blog. I’m hoping that my embarrassingly easy meals are interesting enough to grab your attention and I welcome your feedback!
