I'm Lauren!

I'm a recent college graduate, author, photographer, and foodie! From running around as a child with the native tribes of Panama to down-home cooking in Italy, my recipes will you give you a taste of the world.

The recipes you’ll find here are inspired by seasonal ingredients, generations-old family recipes, and places I’ve grown to love most. My hope is to inspire you inside the kitchen with a love for home-cooked foods, as well as outside the kitchen since everyday is another chance to make a bright moment in someone's life ;)
