My name is Denise (I’m on the right – that’s my bestie, Joy, on the left). I am an absolute foodie, a crazy dog-lover (see photo of my beautiful pit/lab mix Ellie below), yoga enthusiast and wine connoisseur. In September of 2013, I decided to bite the bullet and get certified in yoga, something I have been wanting to do for quite some time. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I am a vegetarian (5 years and counting) and my boyfriend, Nick is a bona fied carnivore – seriously this kid bleeds bacon grease. You can only imagine the sheer panic I go into when preparing our weeknight dinners – not to mention, family holidays. Oh, did I forget to mention I’m the only vegetarian in my family? Yeah, that’s also super fun and convenient. I also found out this year that I have a gluten allergy (super sad face) so my creations have become a little bit more challenging lately. But you know what? I’m always game for a challenge especially in the kitchen!
I’m a self-taught vegetarian chef and cooking is by far my favorite thing to do. I also love cocktails (yes, I have recipes for those too), trying new restaurants and I occasionally read a health book every now and then – so expect to see some book and restaurant reviews along with my recipes up in here.
