Anita is the voice behind Hungry Couple.  A writer, photographer, recipe developer, cook, bottle washer, shaker of creative cocktails, recovering Madison Avenue wiz-bang, occasional news junkie and doggie mama.

Anita also writes a monthly food column for Parade Magazine and is the on-staff Middle Eastern cuisine expert at About.com Food.

Her philosophy is good food, not junk food.  Delicious nutrition, occasional indulgence and a life lived in good balance. The recipes are made from scratch and mostly seasonal with either original recipes or healthier twist on classics.

This site is where she shares the recipes she loves, reviews of places she's eaten, romantic inns stayed at and the quaint towns visited. All that plus a few glimpses of life in the big city, photography and, of course, an adorable pup.
