The inspiration for this site came back in 2005. At that time I was living alone and was a bit frustrated by making some amazing recipes and not being able to share them with anyone. So I decided to take pictures and share my experiences finding food and preparing recipes as I developed my cooking skills by creating this blog.

Now with over 100 cookbooks and subscriptions to about six major food magazines, I am still surrounded with wonderful recipes to play with!

I take all the pictures of the food I prepare myself and have gone through a few different versions of Canon Powershot Digital Elphs. I believe in the spirit of sharing (what the Internet was originally created for) and all photos are covered by the Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial 3.0 US license.

Would you like to review my book, foodie toy, or yummy food item? 
Yes, I do like to review items. However, I only post products to this site that I truly enjoy, so your submission of an item doesn't guarantee it will be included on Rachel's Bite. Please email me at rachelrubinis@gmail.com and I'll be more than happy to provide you with contact information or answer any questions you may have.

More About Rachel
Every recipe featured here has been created, tested, and usually enjoyed - by myself, and if they are lucky, my dog Tristan and bird Charlie - in my home kitchen in Chicago, Illinois. I hope you will try some of them out too and share your experiences in the comments section of each post.

You can learn more about me on my personal blog Rachel's Odyssey. I also participate in several social networks so feel free to connect with me on whichever sites you like to hang out on.

Love is all around you...

- Rachel
