I’m Cindy and this is where I share my thoughts about all-things food related. I have a genuine passion for cooking and baking and I constantly daydream about what I’m going to create in the kitchen next.

Why I am using the domain name themusicianwhocooks.com? Because it is available! D’oh!

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

When you ASSUME means that you make an ass out of you and me.



I love both cookies and chickpeas. I strive to maintain self-control in my life and to eat a good balance of healthy food and desserts! Sometimes it’s difficult because I am always wanting just one more cookie…

I’m a 26-year-old writer working in the heart of NYC and living just a hop, skip, and a jump across the Hudson River in New Jersey.

I’m originally from northern New Jersey but, after spending my undergrad years at Loyola University in Maryland, I took my sweet time moving back to the Northeast. After college, I studied journalism and received my masters degree from Northwestern University. To culminate my graduate studies, I moved to London to work as a feature writer for the BBC. I finally came back to NYC in April 2011 to accept a position at a women’s magazine.

Why a food blog? I’ve always had an interest in food. In fact family members have commented time and time again on my love for all things culinary, but I never seriously considered pursuing a career in the restaurant industry. I simply love writing too much, and I know that’s what I want to do. But, I just can’t stay out of the kitchen.

I enrolled in culinary school in September 2011 and juggled work, school, and city life for nine months while earning a degree in culinary arts. Now, I’m writing about weddings, holidays, and entertaining at my day job and cooking up a storm at night.

Here I’ll share some of my favorite recipes and some fun tidbits from my adventures in The Big Apple. I hope that you’ll follow along.

I am mostly vegetarian (recently turned pescetarian) so you will find mostly meatless dishes on my blog. Vegetarian food does not have to be boring – I like to make delicious dishes that will satisfy even the most diehard of meat eaters!

I love to travel. I love experiencing new cultures, seeing new places and of course trying new food.

When I’m not daydreaming about food or travelling, I am either exercising or hanging out with my boyfriend or my cat Molly.
