about alexandra

I was born in Paris, France, grew up in Asia and currently live in Nashville, TN.

I am a self-taught baker learning to navigate the ways of savory cooking in my home kitchen.

I love to travel [especially to Portland, Oregon and Asheville, NC] and am always planning my next trip. But as much as I love to pack my bags and hit the road, I also love to come home to our quirky little neighborhood on the East side of Nashville.

I was a pretty strict vegetarian for about 5 years. I recently [in 2012] started incorporating some meat back into my diet thanks to some great local farms and CSA programs here in middle TN [namely Peaceful Pastures]. I gained more than the freshman fifteen when I started baking retail and since I was more a carbtarian than a vegetarian decided to incorporate lean meats into my diet to help me reach my goal weight.

I’ve been together with my husband since we started dating in January of 2003 and married to him since September of 2007. We have two dogs that round out our family – Rosey, a chow-pit [or East Nashville Special] that we rescued in 2003 and Ramble, a Boston Terrier mix that we rescued in 2009.

This blog is an outlet for my personal interests and passions. I don’t make any money from this space, though I may occasionally receive products for free. I only accept products and experiences if they are already a natural fit to my lifestyle. I’ll share my thoughts and reviews if I believe those products and/or experiences will be of value to you!
