Hello there! I’m Lilly

I am a full-time attorney and mother of three kids under 7! I also write for a restaurant and food column. I believe there is beauty all around us and I strive to capture it and share it with you.

I started this blog as a journal to keep for my family to share stories, recipes, and experiences.

I am drawn to international and Mediterranean cuisine – and love to share my culture with the world. I love to celebrate different traditions and embrace diversity through food. It gives one a special connection to a different culture through their senses! An emotion that I get when I am making a special passed-down recipe is nostalgia. The aroma of the spices, the texture of the dough—if I close my eyes I can be transported to a different time and place.

Cooking this for my family, I hope they can feel the same love and comfort. Come as you are! I hope you stay a while!
