|(c) 2014 - NYC Foodie Girl|
Since I was 3 years old, I was a New Yorker, but I didn't actually live in the city until the early aughts. I knew by watching Sesame Street that city life was meant for me.
I grew up in the Midwest and then moved with my family to Upstate/Central New York when I was 10. When I finished school, I thought I was too good for college and I moved around to some places like Hawaii, South Korea and Germany.

When I had an opportunity to move to NYC, I had a much better idea of what it meant to be happy. I had also managed to complete 3 college degrees by then (sometimes you can get wiser with age!). I'm here to tell the world: Change was and IS good!
I met my future spouse at a restaurant. We talked about food, A LOT... In fact, it was my fantastic husband that introduced me to the real joy of food. He seriously cooks like a celebrity chef - probably because he learned from them directly! He also owns more cookbooks than I ever thought possible. With the limited square footage in our apartment, we manage to have every Daniel Boulud cookbook known to man.
Speaking of our apartment, we all live in magnificent Manhattan, with our dogs.... Our home seems a little cramped at times, but that's the way we like it.
I found my true passion in writing and the happiness it brings me to share my stories and my perspective on things.

While I write a good deal, I'm also an actor, voice over artist, producer and overall creative content creator. (See VictoriaPrather.com)
