       Well, it has taken me a WHILE, but I have finally started my own blog!  I am so excited to have a space to share my passion for food and life with my friends, family, and fellow bloggers.  My name is Allison and I love food!  Cooking has been a serious passion, influence, and part of my life since I was little and received my very first cookbook, appropriately titled, "My Very First Cookbook."  While I love food, I am also interested in health and wellness (as I am an occupational therapist) and have been TRYING to eat a well-balanced diet as well as lose a few pounds (since Europe seems to like to follow me home).  Primarily, I hope this blog serves to help me document interesting meals, share them with others, and keep me creative in the kitchen! I also hope to connect to other food bloggers since the food blogging world fascinates me!  While breakfast is my first love, as you can guess by the title, I do not discriminate and all walks of food and snacks will be posted here!

      In addition to being un-naturally excited to eat breakfast in the morning, I also love everything that the morning brings.  I love the promise of a new day full of surprises, adventures, and reminders that life is the most amazing gift.  Mornings represent possibilities - and I am a true believer that anything is possible!  With that being said, I hope to share some of my life on the blog so that my family and friends can see what I have been up to in New York City.  I also hope to one day add some information on occupational therapy - which is arguably the best profession in the world :)

     Sorry for the long post!
     I'll leave you with a picture of my birthday breakfast in the Cinque Terre, Italy.  As most of you know, on my birthday my eye was swollen shut due to the Italian insects love of my blood - but I could not turn down a birthday breakfast in one of the most beautiful places in the world!

  Love, Allison


  1. so what's for breakfast tomorrow?

  2. Yay for your blog! I love breakfast too and often go to bed thinking about what I'll have the next morning - glad I'm not the only one :)
