Hi! I’m Chaya. I’m a New York based food stylist, recipe writer and baker. I love overly salty desserts, extra-lemony salads, very dirty martinis and bright colors and flavors. In my spare time, you can find me buying pretty produce (rhubarb season <3) at the farmer’s market, spending time in nature and sharing recipes here. Mostly, you’ll find recipes for the things I cook most often and for the food I like to make for family and friends. It’s always tasty, beautiful and (usually) easy, and I hope you’ll find some recipes here that inspire you and become your favorites too.
