I can’t believe it’s been over a week since the hubby and I came back from France. We went there with lots of actual work to do, but also to see our families. The trip was short – seven days, 2.5 of which fully spent travelling. (The fact that his family is in the North […]
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 BohemianTranscendence.com 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.

To be honest, I’m not really sure I can call this a “defiance” of the San Fran weather. Because the truth is, I love our cool (or cold, depending on whom you ask) weather. Still, those chicken kebabs are definitely defying the idea that you can’t grill on a windy and foggy day. I had […]
“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 […]
I’ve meant to post this recipe for almost two weeks now. Of course, this did not quite happen. Partially, because I couldn’t get myself to sit down and write. And partially, because once I was ready to write, I had my friend Natalie – whom I hadn’t seen in 4 years! – come visit me […]
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 […]
