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!

    Thank you for the recipe. My mother is from Peru, and we had the instant version. It is delicious, and I would love my children to try it.

      haha. my mom used to make the instant version sometimes too! some mixes actually aren’t that bad. most peruvian restaurants in the US actually use the instant mix.

    Hey Adrianna,

    Could you give advice on cooking with little money for food?
    I would love to start cooking some of your recipes- I saved the goat cheese tomato soup a long time ago- but at this point in my life I can barely eat in general, much less have ample amount of money for grocery (ingredient) shopping. It helps to have spices and the basics already stocked up, I’m sure.
    Thanks dahling- hope to hear from you soon!

    Xx Meg

    Just discovered you & your gorgeous recipes/food! Trying out a recipe or two over this long holiday weekend. Just a quick note of support from New England! If you schedule any book signings, don’t forget Boston! Rock on, girl!

    Whoops! I wrote a comment & promptly lost it in internet space somewhere. So, here goes my second attempt: Love your blog/website. I just discovered it today while searching for grain-free treats for my new doggy. I clicked on your recipe and was rewarded with photos of the most a-DOR-able puppy dog!! (Your corgi pup Amelia). She’s a doll. I’d love to see some pics of her at different stages of her growth, did you post any?

    Thanks for recipe too, of course.

    Hola Adrianna!
    I just stumbled onto your website and LOVE it! I was pulled in by the Enoki Mushroom Stir Fry and kept clicking through to your other links, like the ginger Cauliflower Rice. Love! I subscribed to your feed so I’m looking forward to future posts!

    I absolutely love the design of your website. I will definitely need to give a few of your pancake recipes a try!

    I’m in the process of starting my own food blog (and hopefully will be just as successful as you one day :), and was just curious …. did you go to culinary school?? I’m not a professional, but I just love food and love to eat and try recipes I find online, cookbooks, etc. I was just wondering perhaps the secret to your awesome recipes is the result of an awesome culinary education ??

    First time I’m stopping by and I’m in awe with the beauty of your blog. (looking to upgrade mine very soon) And high-five to breakfast! It’s the most important meal of the day!

    hi Adrianna we are staying in a b&b (garden cottage b&b) that is near the grove.
    I hope that is a good area to stay. 🙂

    • Reply Adrianna Adarme October 10, 2013 at 11:56 am

      It’s a great place to stay because it’s super central. Here’s a short list of recommendations:

      Bakeries/Breakfast/Good Coffee – Short Cake, Proof, Huckleberry, Hart + Hunter (not a bakery, per se but they have awesome baked goods), Sqirl.

      Dinner – Mozza Pizzeria (pizza), Angelini Osteria (Northern Italian), Bestia (Southern Italian, expensive but worth it – make a res far in advance),

      Taco trucks – Taco Zone (truck in Echo Park), Tacos Arizas (truck in Echo Park), Rico’s Mar Azul Mariscos Truck (in Highland Park – by far my favorite), Kogi BBQ (a staple), Guisados (restaurant for tacos in Echo park).

      Let me know where you end up going. Have an awesome trip. I love this city!

      • Reply Adrianna Adarme October 10, 2013 at 11:57 am

        Oh and you’re super close to Short Cake. Let me know if you end up going – they’ll take care of you! 😉

        • Reply michelle October 11, 2013 at 5:38 am

          hi adrianna,
          where do you think we should spend our time shopping at? downtown, pasadena ? where do you usually shop?

          we have done all the touristy la stuff the last time so looking for somewhere else to walk and hang out. 🙂

    HI Adrianna,
    i am coming to LA in december and was wondering if you have any dinner / lunch recommendations to share about LA? i usually like to ask the locals as they know the best food around.

    we are keen to try italian, mexican and foodtrucks!

    • Reply Adrianna Adarme October 10, 2013 at 11:44 am
