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.

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 […]

It requires great skills to take basic ingredients and quickly turn them into a delicious meal that doesn’t leave you longing for anything else.

I came across “bannocks” while browsing the “Quick Breads” chapter of The Breakfast Book by Marion Cunningham. I had never heard of them before and, of course, that was all I needed to pick them from this chapter for our Cook the Book project. Turns out, bannocks are primarily of Scottish origin and are quite […]

Memories are peculiar. We can forget important things and yet remember some other trivial ones, with no logical explanation. Then, those mundane marks in our subconscious will influence our future decisions, without us even realizing it. When, I and 5 other wonderful ladies — Rachel (our project organizer!), Natasha, Aimee, Sammy, Emily — decided to undertake […]
