Chocolate Babka



My name is Mike. I've been cooking since I was a 10 year old latchkey kid in Brooklyn, NY. After 30+ years of cooking for myself, my parents, friends, and now my wife and three kids, I'm proof that HE CAN COOK.

But don't be fooled. It wasn't easy. There were burnt burgers, minor grease fires, and the occasional meal that ended up in the trash and a call for Chinese take-out. Even today, it doesn't always work out, but it's always fun and I'm always learning.

"You know how they say 'Don't quit your day job'? Well, you could totally quit your day job and sell that babka. It was that good."
