I am a freelance illustrator and designer who absolutely loves food. I'm very passionate about eating healthy and eating well, and unfortunately the two don't always coincide! Sometimes you can get away with olive oil, and sometimes you just have to use butter.

Dragonfruit is delightful and refreshing, easy to prepare, and enjoyable at any time of day. Many people do not know how to approach this odd-looking fruit, but it's guaranteed to delight --particularly if you can get it fresh and naturally ripened!
My father was born in Colombia, with sisters and brothers who still live there, and our family is very close to our heritage. This past Christmas, we decided to make a delicious food that my father and sister had tried while in Colombia a couple of years ago: Ajiaco Bogotano. It's a rich, comforting soup, a cultural icon of Bogotá in particular and a wonderful dish for sharing with family and friends. In America, it is often necessary to special order the guascas for the recipe, and mazorca is the proper corn to use (instead of sweet corn, mazorca is tougher and less sweet, requiring more time to cook), but papas criollas can be replaced with yukon gold, dutch creamer, or baby dutch yellow. I highly recommend ajiaco, it is sure to delight!
