About

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, peanut butter, or Nutella, or eating copious amounts of meat and pasta, I work in the fun and exciting world of advertising. But in 2014 I decided to take a break and focus on getting my Master’s Degree in Journalism at the Harvard University Extension School, so right now I’m a full time student. I’m also the social media consultant and a contributor for Talking Writing, a Boston-based online literary magazine. On top of that, I host events every now and then, run, practice yoga, and spend quality time with my DVR. 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’d love to hear from you so please feel free to comment on the posts.
