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.

Unsure whether to worry about the tree needles flying all around and sticking to the carpet, or about the tree surviving until the 25th? […]

I usually need to refill my pantry quite frequently. But, sometimes, there is one particular item which just hangs out in there for a bit longer than the usual. And sometimes, this bit lasts long enough to make me feel guilty about leaving it to be the only one ingredient not being regularly used. That’s […]

Pineapple & Jalapeño Chocolate Cookies

As the Superbowl is approaching, I see men around me (my hubby included) getting frantically ready for the event. Cheez-Its? Check. Sour cream? Check. Sliders, pizza, jalapeño poppers, salsa, beer, and chips? Check. All of this sounds really good (or not — depending on your current diet), but it lacks something. Something… sweet. Something sweet […]
