Are there any lessons you've picked up from cooking that you think can be applied to the work you do?
Shari: Improvise and be flexible. Sometimes things don't always end up the way intended but often you end up in a place that is just as good if not better. This includes swapping ingredients if you are out of something.
Do you have any memories attached to this recipe? / What does this meal remind you of?
Shari: A few years ago my husband and I celebrated a big wedding anniversary with a trip to Italy. While there we were introduced to limoncello - it seemed that after every dinner a complimentary glass of limoncello was served. So delicious and the perfect way to end an evening! This gives me such a warm feeling and is such a happy memory.
What new recipes are you looking to try during this time?
Shari: I have so many saved recipes on a Pinterest board that I can't wait to try. We've already baked a version of Levain's Chocolate Chip Banana Bread (multiple times!), and made delicious salmon burgers using fresh salmon. Looking forward to making a healthy eggplant parm next!
What is your favorite meal of the day?
Shari: Brunch! What better excuse to eat cake for breakfast? 😉 Seriously though, My healthy fav is avocado toast with a fried egg, red pepper flakes and sea salt, or for a treat, french toast. There is a place around the corner from my apartment that has truly decadent French Toast. It’s not the healthiest dish (but the most delicious!) so it is reserved for special occasions only!
Is there a Yummie piece that makes you feel your best while cooking?
Shari: I can typically be found in the French Terry Jogger, whether cooking, WFH, or walking the dog. Sooo cozy! Yummie socks are also my go-to.
