About Me

Hello!  I’m Karen.  The cook, recipe developer, and photographer behind The Tasty Bite, a blog dedicated to all things delicious.

I live in New York City’s Midtown, where my cooking and baking take place in a small kitchen.  By day, I’m a corporate attorney working in banking.

I love to entertain friends and family, and I’m excited about parties, holidays, and pretty much all occasions that involve food and people. When I’m not keeping myself busy in the kitchen, I like to travel, sample different food ingredients, and be inspired by the restaurants and foods I get to try.

About the Blog

Food has always been something near and dear to my heart. My favorite food memories involve helping out in my mother and grandmother’s kitchen, and gathering around a table of delicious, home-cooked dishes with my family.

I started this blog in April 2012 as a place for me to share my recipes with family and friends and to challenge myself with new recipes and cooking techniques. Since then, I have incorporated many healthy living elements – such as Meatless Monday posts – into my blog as a way to share my journey in achieving a healthy, happy, and balanced life.

I hope that you’ll like the recipes you find here.  It’s a mix of healthy and indulgence, and always delicious!

    • Cousin Mike! Love your ramen quest. Have you tried Totto Ramen yet? It’s one of my favorites in the city if only the line wasn’t so long. By the way, let me know if you’re down for the ultimate ramen challenge: making ramen noodles and tonkotsu broth…from scratch! :)
