I'm one of those people who thinks about dinner while still having breakfast. I'm constantly creating recipes in my head and in my kitchen inspired by my childhood in Russia and travels through the US and abroad. Mango & Tomato is where I share my love of food. Nothing makes me happier than when a reader makes one of my recipes and loves it. When I'm not obsessing about food, I obsess with the people in my life, salsa dancing, jewelry, orchids, photography, travel, reality TV and decorating my condo.
