About the Author

Judith RontalJudith Rontal hails from wintry Ann Arbor, Michigan, where she grew up in a family that always managed to eat dinner together.

When not in the kitchen working on a new recipe, you can find Judith sweating it out at yoga or on the Rock Creek Park trails. Follow her food adventures on Twitter and Instagram.
