I’m a native Bay Area Californian who spends a great majority of my time baking, eating, and working out. As those of you who know me are aware, I love a great multitude of things including (but not limited to):
- the Bay Area (west coast best coast, sorry not sorry)
- Skiing & all kinds of outdoorsy things
- Coffee: but only with whole milk, thank you
- Gilbert and Sullivan+bel canto opera.
- Lots of laughing, because it’s good for the soul
I’m also ridiculously nerdy. You’re just going to have to get used to it. Being a nerd is SUPER AWESOME, because then you know cool things like what ‘Tua toga suspina est’ means, and… sometimes I make pie.
In this blog, I chronicle my culinary adventures: oftentimes gluten & grain free, sometimes dairy free, sometimes all the glutens, and always refined sugar free. I like to futz with recipes and see just how nutrient-dense I can make desserts without compromising taste.
Feed the ones you love. Live long, and prosper!

I love this blog! You are so fun! You should be a professional photographer….for a magazine…your food pictures are to die for! I love your writing too! It’s fun and witty!
I can totally see you as a fitness instructor….that is so VERY possible. You would be great at it! I became one when I was 40….been doing it for 15 years now….although I’ve always lifted weights since my 20’s! I’d love to give you your first job in the fitness world!
Thank you, Marilyn!!! I am sooo sore today, and looking forward to the next class. Thank you for the lovely comments! I would love to help you out with teaching! :)
I definitely agree with this :) I used to have fun dressing like a bit of an oddball. Unfortunately I’ve lost a bit of required confidence but hopefully I will once again walk the streets covered in beads :) Also, your pancake moulds are INCREDIBLE!
Oooh, you will! And the pancake thingies are from Williams Sonoma, they have a whole line of Star Wars stuff which is freaking amazing!! Because I’m a nerd. So I love it, naturally ;)
You call it nerdy, I call it fun :) let me tell you I don’t know anybody over here with pancake moulds to rival yours ;)
