Samin Nosrat: I moved here when I was 29 and never would have guessed that I’d still be here when I was 39. I’ve slowly upgraded the kitchen. There’s always that balance when you’re a renter. You’re like‚ "I’m going to save my money so I can fix up the place where I’ll finally live." But at some point‚ I just had to say‚ "Well‚ I do live here‚ and I have to make it enjoyable."
