Ciao! I’m Diane, a 27 year old Filipina mutt living and loving in Grand Rapids, MI. I first created this site in preparation for a transition into my big girl job in marketing/graphic design and continued to share tasty food, travels, occasional doodles, many puppies, and other inspiration.

I’m a real food nutrition nerd and I plan on shifting this site to a place where I can share what I learn and the nourishing food I enjoy. I believe a healthy lifestyle has balance, so while I love real food I also love an occasional decadent dessert. When I’m not cooking I love hitting the yoga mat and free weights, unplugging with a good book, drawing, and curling up with my pups Huey and Doug the Pug. (Seriously, I have an unabashed dog obsession). I love long weekends in new places and eating my way through new cities.
