HI, I'M ARIELLE!
I'm a first generation Filipina-American born and raised in Southern California. I'm currently based in San Diego. I'm passionate about delicious food and humble home cooking. I don't make fancy or complicated dishes. Most of my food is simple, involves lots of shortcuts, and is bursting with flavor. I love nearly every food--from cheese in a can to foie gras. When I'm not cooking, you can find me thrifting, cuddling my dog, traveling with my husband, or on the couch watching a Studio Ghibli movie for the 1709th time.
I started this project in a transitionary period of my life, and I didn't have a lot of direction. All I knew is that I couldn't see myself doing something I was truly passionate about. So, this is me! Pursuing a passion of humble home cooking and sharing it with you. I made this blog for the sake of my own joy, but I really hope you enjoy it too!
