Hey I’m Sophie! I’m a twenty-something with a full time job, part time MBA program, live in boyfriend and commitments until the end of next week, but I still find time to get in the kitchen and make a meal almost every night. Can I show how easy it is to shop, cook, and entertain, all on a budget? Challenge accepted!
My love for all things gastronomical comes from my childhood with a talented mother who made a home cooked meal every night. When I moved out after college I realized it was time to learn some new skills and make sure I eat healthful, fresh food so I have the energy to keep up with my busy life.
I have lived a mostly gluten-free lifestyle since I was a senior in college. I should be totally gluten free, but there are some things I just can’t give up (soy sauce!). I suffer the consequences, but at least I know to think before I take a bite. I’ll share my favorite gluten-free recipes that even wheat-lovers can get into.
I was born in London, grew up in Connecticut and went to Syracuse University (Go Orange!) where I studied TV and Film. After graduating, I moved to Brooklyn. I have always considered myself a New Yorker due to my mentality (fast walking, iPod wearing, coffee drinking) and worked in media for 2 years. After company lay-offs in 2009 I decided to move to Boston, save some money, and advance my education.
I live with my boyfriend, referred to as Z, on the outskirts of the city and work for a local medical school. Managing the skills and the time to feed two busy, working law and business students is what prompted me to start blogging.
I hope this will be a resource for you to find the courage and the motivation to get into the kitchen, whether you are cooking for yourself or a dinner party of friends. The edible world is an adventure to be taken by storm, so let’s get cooking!
