I have always loved to cook and bake (I think I get this from my mom so, thanks, Mom!) but I have never been one inclined to take pictures of my food (I much prefer to eat it immediately), so I guess it’s kind of ironic that I have decided to create a cooking/baking blog.
I grew up in Los Angeles, California which has a lot of amazing Mexican food. My mom is also Mexican-American, and I love the flavors and all of the delicious herbs and spices used in Mexican food, so you will find lots of those kinds of recipes here. After high school I moved to Boston for college and began expanding my palate!
In the ten years to follow I spent a semester in London, graduated and moved to NYC, where I was exposed to perhaps the most diverse variety of food in the world. I spent five years in New York enjoying all of the new experiences and cuisines I could squeeze in. During this time I traveled like a maniac to places like Africa and Tahiti where I further fell in love with new global flavors. I later moved to Washington, D.C. with my now-husband before we got married and decided to move back to my home in Southern California.
My husband, Brian (I call him BC here), loves being my recipe guinea pig. However, in a devastating twist of fate, he has gluten sensitivity (and I love gluten almost as much as I love him) and I am allergic to shellfish (he would have shellfish for breakfast lunch and dinner if he could), so we could never share our favorite foods (he would say that is a good thing, though)!
If you have any questions or comments, you can email me at mycaliforniakitchenMC@gmail.com or post to the blog’s Facebook page.
