About Me: Hi! I'm Christine, the blogger behind Wry Toast.  For as long as I remember I've always loved food, and with a nickname like "Cakes", how couldn't I?  Growing up Italian you quickly learn that food is love, so I guess I was destined to find a passion for cooking.  I'm a self-taught, trial and error cook that focuses on recipes that reflect my personal tastes, curiosities, and cravings.  Most of the time I like to eat healthy, but other times I'm in need of a full-blown splurge.  Either way I try and keep my recipes easy, accessible, and as time conscious as possible.  And when I'm not making a mess of my teeny tiny kitchen?  I can be found traipsing around NYC, occasionally finding trouble, and habitually with a glass of champagne. Cheers!
