About Babaganosh

Hello there!

I’m Kate. I’m a Chemist-turned-Clinical Research Scientist by day, but my true passion is in food.

I started Babaganosh because I love cooking, trying new recipes, improving old favorites, and sharing with others. I hope this site becomes a community where people will come to share their cooking tips – I love hearing creative suggestions from others so please leave a comment and let me know how you would do things differently!

‘Babaganosh’ is a play on words: a combination of the middle eastern eggplant dip and the Yiddish word for snacking – ‘nosh.’ It’s like world peace in one word. 🙂

I live with my fiance Aldo (who happens to have an awesome personal finance blog Million Dollar Ninja) and our two cats – Luna and Midnight. If it was up to Aldo, we’d order pizza about once a week. But I grew up with my mom and grandma always cooking and always coming up with creative ways to use all leftovers, so I’ve learned to do the same. A lot of the food that Aldo and I make at home is inspired by our Russian/Jewish and Dominican families. For example, I have never made borscht (yet), but beets and cabbage do make an appearance in a lot of our dishes. And sometimes our fried rice has a Latin flavor, since it starts off as yellow rice with sazón.

I always aim to make my recipes as healthy and simple as possible, but I am not above deep frying plantains and I do love making things from scratch when I have the time.

Please take a look around the blog and follow me on social media: Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Bloglovin, and subscribe in the right sidebar to receive the recipes by e-mail.

If you would like to contact me, please e-mail me at babaganoshblog at gmail dot com. If you are interested in working with me, please check out the Work With Me page, or send me an e-mail.

Happy cooking!

– Kate

  2. Hi Kate!

    I’ve been on your site for only a few minutes and I’ve already bookmarked two of your recipes. I really like the stuffed mini bell peppers for two and the garlic naan tikka masala pizza. They seriously look great, so I’m excited to try them out. You’ve got a very nice site here – keep up the awesome work!

    Take care,

    Jay G.

  3. Love the site Kate. You have a great attitude in your recipes. The photos are real good too. As of late, the most used utensil in my kitchen is my smart phone camera. Your site is going on my Browser Speed dial.
