about me

20-something food + travel blogger based out of New York City


I work 50+ hours a week at my day job and am constantly on the move. I'm no professional chef, but I strive to make cooking approachable, easy, and exciting with tasty recipes you can make after work. 

Think of this website as your cooking guide for young adults. From beginner recipes for dinner to delicious desserts, I am here to figure it all out with you.

You may recognize me as I previously had a blog titled Sophistication and Sparkles.
