La Boheme: c'est moi.

(La Boheme: it's me.)

This is just a short intro of who I am. If you’d like to learn more about me, please visit my personal blog on which I talk about philosophy, life, and, of course, myself.

I first claimed I could cook at age 19, just when I started doing regular strength. Of course, at that time, my idea of cooking was limited to knowing how to make a good lettuce salad and how to grill chicken. I was probably one of the few people on earth who didn’t mind eating the same meal over and over and over again. Things changed about two years later when I moved to the U.S. and discovered in cooking a way of preserving my culture. Preparing traditional dishes for dinner parties with friends or for the holidays was how I expressed part of myself as an individual. Without noticing, I slowly picked up more and more recipes and even began to (successfully) improvise with my own ones.

Nowadays, I continue my “studies” in the domain of cooking, always looking to combine healthy with tasty, while living what I describe as a modern bohemian lifestyle. And of course, I hope to share with you what I enjoy sharing so much with my friends.

Welcome to my BohemianKitchen.

PS: On the picture, I am at a friend's house, holding a delicious French Tarte Tatin, seconds before turning it upside down.

Baked German Pancakes (or Dutch Babies) – Cook the Book Project!

Categories: BreakfastDessertsPancakes. Tags: .

Today’s recipe might just be my favorite one from The Breakfast Book project so far! I loved the pancakes because of their “bowl” or “flower” shape which could be perfectly filled with a fruit salad and because of their extremely light texture which lets you pair them, if you prefer, with your favorite jams, all […]

Pie. There are so many things you can do with it. You can compete in pie making contests. You can also compete in pie eating contests. (I think you’ll agree with me that might be the better option.) You can play the clown. You can reward yourself with pie. Or console yourself. Or, you can […]

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap: Fig & Date Holiday Cookies

Cookies. Lots and lots of cookies. That’s what December is all about, right? The Christmas-y spirit, the warm nights next to the heater, and… the cat playing with the Fraser Fir. Unsure whether to worry about the tree needles flying all around and sticking to the carpet, or about the tree surviving until the 25th? […]

In a mundane world, there are small things I’m thankful for every day, such as: Fast-dry nailpolish. This has literally saved me a thousand times. Being a morning person. (Though, sometimes, waking up effortlessly around 4:30-5am can be a curse too.) Online shopping. Being a geek. Particularly useful when your RAM module fails on a […]

You didn’t think I’d skip the season and would be the only food blogger not to post a recipe involving pumpkin, did you? I know, I know, I made you wait for it a while. But, sometimes you’ve got to wait for the good things, right? And this recipe… well, this recipe is really good. […]

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. We all know this. But what if, instead of your canned pumpkin, you find a can of evaporated milk in your bag? Then what do you do? That’s the question I asked myself yesterday. See, yesterday afternoon, I went to the store to grab a few things, […]
