About Adrianna

Adrianna and Amelia

Hi! I’m Adrianna. This is my blog where I share my favorite recipes and random tangents about life with you all. Thanks for being here.

This blog is fueled by copious amounts of hip-hop, sugar, butter and flour. I first started this blog when I was working a job that left to be desired in the creativity department. After a few years of plugging away, I was able to leave and now I do it full-time. YAY!

The recipes I love to make are ALWAYS comforting and cozy and often times are inspired by my Latin-American background. My mom is Peruvian and my dad is Colombian. You’ll find some traditional classics from both countries as well as a bunch of mash-ups that hopefully aren’t offensive (I was raised in the US, after all). Another thing you’ll find a lot of: pastries, cakes, breakfast stuff and lots and lots of pie.

In 2015, I released The Year of Cozy: 125 Recipes, Crafts & Other Homemade Adventures (Rodale). It was the most fun and exhausting experience ever and I loved every minute of it. And in 2016, I came out with a coloring cookbook called A Cozy Coloring Cookbook: 45 Recipes to Eat, Cook & Color. If you’d like to read about them more, hop on over to my Cookbooks Page.

I currently live in Los Angeles, California with my husband, Joshua, and corgi Amelia.

If you’re a brand and would like to work together, feel free to shoot me an email for rates and media kit. In the past, I’ve worked with Scharffen-Berger, Anthropologie, Vitamix, Clover Petaluma, Stella & Chewy’s, Coolhaus, Google Home and more!

    Nice recipes ! There appears to be a problem with your recipe index. Scroll down past appetizers and you will see what I mean. Hope you can fix it.

    Best Regards,

    I came across your blog by absently clicking through stumbleupon the other day and have been hooked on it since. I have a list a mile long of recipes I want to try! I absolutely love food, but I am a terrible cook so I love that fact that all of your recipes are so simple yet look sooooo delish. I think I have found a new favorite corner of the internet. Thanks so much for sharing your great ideas.

    I just wanted to let you know that I came across your blog today and it’s amazing. All the food looks delicious! I am most definetly following you now.

    Yup, I pretty much love A Cozy Kitchen. For real. When I read “it’s usually just grown-up versions of stuff I ate as a kid” I was like, “Yes!” (I seriously eat “grown up” mac ‘n cheese, like, once a week. Maybe not that often, but close.) Anyway, I love your recipes, love your photos, love the look of your blog – everything! Thanks for being so lovely and consider me subscribed! 🙂

    I just found your blog via foodbuzz, and it is absolutely delightful! Your recipes and photos are gorgeous. I look forward to catching up on all you’ve already posted and keeping up with everything new. I’m trying your marshmallow milkshake as soon as I eat all my Easter candy.
