Hi, I'm Lauren


Hello everyone & welcome to my new blog!

I'm Lauren, and I LOVE food. That's the simplest way to put it. There are a lot of things in life I love, but you have to eat everyday, so here we are! As much as I try to focus on other things, I always feel at home in the kitchen trying out a new recipe. I'm the type of person who could nerd out with you for hours talking about brewing my own kombucha and the science behind fermenting kimchi. I also think dim sum is the BOMB (don't know what that is? Please ask)!


I'm an actor/singer, writer, cheese enthusiast and a baker (check out @peace_of_cake_bakery on the gram)! I recently returned home to Minnesota from New York City, because in case you hadn't heard, Broadway shut down and will stay that way until 2021.  Although I had not made it to Broadway (yet!), it still sets a precedent for the rest of our industry. So what better time is there to start the blog you've dreamt of, than in the middle of a worldwide pandemic?!


But in all seriousness...


For those of you who have been around since the inception of my previous blog, FoodandForkMN, I thank you for your continued support! And for those of you just joining, thank you for being here!


Now, this is very much a passion project so please bare with me as I compile content and deliver all the recipes of your dreams! But I am ELATED that you are here!


happy eating!
