My name is Annie Richardson and I love all things food-related. I’m a wine enthusiast and a self-declared sriracha connoisseur.

Living in Manhattan, with world-class restaurants right outside your door, can make you forget about all of the wonders you can create right in the comfort of your own kitchen. I’m here to remind you, and have some fun along the way! Follow my adventures in the kitchen on Instagram @_foodforth0t and get started on your own journey to chefdom!

Remember: There is no such thing as a “mistake” in the kitchen (as long as you haven’t set your apartment on fire). Take these recipes and tweak them to make them your own! As long as you’re having fun, you’re doing it right, and a glass of wine never hurts to help get the creative juices flowing.
