The after-effects of Superstorm Sandy have been devastating to New York and New Jersey; Breezy Point, the Rockaways, Howard Beach, Staten Island, and even the love-to-hate-it Jersey Shore have been destroyed. Watching the news this past week and seeing all of the people who have lost their homes and loved ones was a real eye opener, and truly one of the saddest things to witness. Fortunately, I was one of the lucky groups in Brooklyn who didn’t suffer any damage to my apartment, or lose power, water, and heat. My friend Inbal and I were holed up in my place for a week…so we cooked, ate, and drank. Then repeat. And repeat again. I felt a bit like a waste of space, and I didn’t do much, but I did donate to the Red Cross, to help those in need during this tough time. I suggest you do the same. There are also multiple shelters around the city that are collecting clothes as well. Then I will share some pics from my cooking and eating ventures aka #sandysnacks.

Now for some eye candy…
Welp that’s enough of that. All that food has given me my own gravitational pull I’m sure.
As for the Sandy survivors, please help in any way you can – New York is my home, and I was lucky enough to keep my home. Tens of thousands of others were not so lucky.
