Welcome to Confessions of a Chocoholic!

Part memoir, part recipe collection, and part restaurant review database, my food blog is a chronicle of my culinary adventures – and the laughs, tears, and chocolate that come with it.

Through the years, I’ve developed a clearer, better appreciation of food and cooking. I enjoy a balanced life, so while I do have an affinity for rich, indulgent foods, I keep everything in moderation.  (And by moderation I mean always having room for dessert.)

When I’m not making treats using chocolate, caramel, and Nutella, or eating copious amounts of meat and pasta, or trying my hand at Filipino food, I work in the fun and exciting world of advertising. I’m the associate director of digital media at a super cool full-service ad agency here in Boston called Genuine. I’m also on the Board of Directors and a contributor for Talking Writing, an online literary magazine. On top of that, I host events every now and then, run, practice yoga, and spend quality time with my boyfriend Matt and/or my DVR. I travel when I can, and I also write freelance articles when there’s an opportunity. I’d like to think that I’ve gotten pretty good at managing my time.

I always get giddy whenever I see cake, but there are times when I get serious and reflect on how food and culture help shape my life. Because sometimes, food really is more than just food.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog. I love hearing from you so please feel free to comment on the posts or send me an email!
