About Me


I’m a long time lover of food and a frequent traveler. From a young age, I was exposed to the diverse food and culture of the DC suburbs. It wasn’t until moving to California post-college however, that I started to hone my food passion. I found my true home among the creativity, diversity, and freshness of cuisine which felt unparalleled elsewhere in America.

Eating noodlesIt was here in the Bay Area where I rekindled my love of baking and learned about cooking. While on a trip to Vietnam, I was inspired to start my food Instagram which led to my food blog. Now my time is filled with trying new restaurants, experimenting with home-cooked meals, and planning my next vacation.

My blog is a peek into this journey. Like my mind, this is a heavily food-centered diary. The focus is on new dining experiences, both locally and where my trips take me. There are home recipes and food science thrown into the mix. While food is a passion, it is not my career. My reflections are as an amateur food lover, and I invite you into my food world.
