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.

I know — I have been away from this blog and my RSS feed for wayyy too long. But, you can blame it on the taxes. (And nope, I’m not trying to involve any political subjects!) I mean it really. First, two days after my trip to Chicago, I went to Puerto Rico for 5 […]

“Crab cakes?” That was my husband’s first guess as he entered the kitchen after coming home from work on Thursday night. I have no idea how he came up with this since I do not eat seafood (and, therefore, have never cooked any), but it was as a result of this that I decided to […]

A few of months ago, I was browsing the Whole Foods shelves and noticed quinoa flour. It wasn’t the first time I had heard about quinoa flour, but it was the first time I actually noticed it (despite frequently cooking quinoa). And now that it was right in front of me, I asked myself: why […]

Stuffed veggies – zucchinis, tomatoes, eggplants – are like the little black dress for side dishes. And I’m not kidding. Whenever you need a quick, easy, and “can’t go wrong” side dish, that’s your best option. Here’s my recipe for simple Fried Rice and Mushroom stuffed Tomatoes, baked in the oven and an excellent side […]

“What would you like for dinner?” *Shrug.* “I don’t know.” This, my friends, is the typical answer I get from my hubby. Which is why, when he asked me for a meatloaf a week ago, I immediately jumped on the opportunity to skip a day of meal planning and just opted for his choice. The […]
