Hi, we’re Sherri and Greg, creators of Watch Learn Eat. Here you’ll find easy recipes along with the stories (and sometimes the song parodies, like the one on our home page) behind them.
In addition to our recipe portion of the blog, we feature children’s book reviews in our Watch Learn Read section (brought to you by our daughters, Londyn and Jovie) as well as all things random in our Random Ramblings section.

Hi I’m Sherri and I write all of the content on Watch Learn Eat. I love food! In fact, I was born at 6:11 pm and my parents still joke that it was just in time for dinner!
I first learned to cook as a child from my father who is half Italian. Some of my favorite meals to cook are Italian inspired or derived from my father’s recipes, many of which he learned from his Italian grandmother (my great grandmother). I remember visiting my great-grandmother in Newark, NJ, who grew herbs in her driveway garden, cooked monstrous pots of Sunday sauce and baked the most delicious Italian knot cookies one has ever tasted.
In addition to cooking, I have always had a passion for writing. I’ll admit, I was the unusual student who wrote poems during boring lectures instead of doodling about the latest teen heartthrob. After earning a BA in communication with a concentration in journalism, I began my professional writing career as a reporter for a local newspaper in 2000.
After leaving the newsroom, I continued writing on a freelance basis and returned to school to complete a post-baccalaureate teaching certification program. Although I only worked as a public school language arts teacher for a brief time, I have been tutoring students and mentoring business professionals in writing for many years. Currently, I work as a youth development instructor for Camp Fire New Jersey while continuing to write professionally for a number of clients.
Through blogging, I was finally able to combine my two passions (or “sparks” as we say at Camp Fire) into one.
Gregory (Greg) Hall
Greg is my handsome, tech-savvy husband and photographer for Watch Learn Eat. Greg has always been passionate about photography. After learning the ropes as a child from his grandfather who served as a World War II photographer, Greg became fascinated with photography.
Beginning as a hobby early on, his interest developed into a business as he started his own real estate photography and video company. Since then, he has photographed the interior and exterior of countless homes and commercial buildings. He has also photographed other projects, such as landscape designs and yachts. As his company grew, Greg took on other types of photography, including product and food.
In addition to photography, Greg enjoys cooking with me as well as making special meals just for me. His love for photography and video meshes well with his interest in cooking, especially since he will tell you his favorite thing to photograph is something that doesn’t move!
