Smile Greetings!

Hello everyone,
My name is Alex and I live in Tel Aviv. I love to cook and eat and travel and photograph food and write run-on sentences. I happened to stumble upon your site and I am really excited to start reading and posting about cooking and food!
Best,
Alex

Thanks for the warm welcome, Harry!
I live in a dorm-style apartment in TLV so my kitchen is limited, but I started a project with my friends here called #mycrapkitchen where we cook "gourmet" meals on hot plates.

Here are a few shots I've taken for work:

Welcome Alexz. This a very fun place to be. You have met Harry. One of our more delightful irreverent members. But he grows on you. We do have some great discussions here regarding food. And we have a lot of laughs. You must check out the thread, "Today's Funny". We also love pictures of food. Or as we call it, "Food Porn!"

Thank you Harry. She is doing very good. One can never have too many angels looking out for them.

Yes I did. In fact I kept playing it over and over. That is a beautiful song. But then what else can you expect from Welsh singers.

Hello, Alex!
You have a very special name. I had an Uncle Alex who passed yesterday, and he was a very great man.
I like these photos! I can perhaps learn very much from you! Welcome to DC!

Your friend,
~Cat
