Hi! I’m so happy you’re here.

I'm Marina. I like to cook, write, take pictures, and design things. 

I recently moved to New York City from my small town of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, which is (in my humble opinion) the most beautiful winter town in the world. 

Living in NYC and working in a tiny kitchen has needed some getting used to, but I'm learning how to live in such a big city with so much going on + keeping in touch with what makes me happiest!

I graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in Marketing and Public Relations and I'm currently working for a social media agency in the city by day + cooking/running this website by night, which is a blast + a challenge at once. 

Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved to cook (my mom owns a culinary store + olive oil company, so shocker!). My passion has only grown with age and I'm so excited to share it with you all. 

You'll also hear me mention Frank on here, he is my sweet boyfriend of 4 years + the reason I'm always smiling. He's a talented videographer if you wanna check out his website!

Follow along for our adventures (and failures).

So happy you stopped by (!!!)
