About the Blog:
Hi! Welcome! I’m Michelle, and A Latte Food is my little space to share with you all of my favorite recipes, most of which can be classified as dessert! I love dessert.
I’m a total dessert-a-holic.
Basically, food is my life.
But, even though I bleed coffee and breathe sugar, you will find a variety of recipes on the blog, because I love being able to share my favorite recipes with all of you! While dessert recipes might be the predominate theme on my blog, there is (and will continue to be!) an assortment of recipes.
If I love it, I’ll share it. 🙂
So, please grab a cup of coffee and eat your heart with me!
Here are a few facts about me that I’m sure you’ve been dying to know:
I was born and raised in Southern California. I love, love the beach, but absolutely hate swimming in the ocean. It’s vast and powerful, and absolutely breathtaking.
I’m an avid reader with eclectic tastes. It all started with Nancy Drew, The Baby Sitters Club, and the Boxcar Children. It soon morphed into the Clearwater Crossing series, which then led to books like To Kill a Mockingbird (still a favorite of mine) and Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. My list of favorite “must-read” books (I’m the queen of “I loved that book! You have to read it!”) is a mile long, but a few I could read again and again are:
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
All Quiet on the Western Front
The Things They Carried
Into the Wild
The Glass Castle
Into Thin Air
Garlic and Sapphires
Through Painted Deserts
Blue Like Jazz
Water for Elephants
I have a B.A. in English lit (shocking, right? 🙂 ), and a double minor in both History and Biblical Studies.
My favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4: 4-8, and my favorite book of the bible is Romans.
I love photography!
I love art, specifically contemporary art, and almost minored in art history.
Gilmore Girls rules all. Seriously.
I also have an obsession with crime dramas, like NCIS, Blue Bloods, Law and Order SVU, Cold Case, and Bones. (I can’t stand the sight of blood, though, so often times I’m watching the shows with one eye closed).
I’m a huge Angels fan, even though I physically dislike playing baseball–go figure (probably because I’m competitive and was never very good at it–soccer was my sport!).
When I was 4 or 5, I desperately wanted to be a gymnast or an ice skater, but considering I grew up to be 5’8,” that was definitely not in my future. (Plus, my dreams were crushed at 7 when someone told me I was way too tall to ever be a gymnast. Granted, she was right, but I was devastated. 😉)
I’m a cooking magazine junkie and a huge fan of film. Like books, my tastes are eclectic and range from chick-flicks like You’ve Got Mail, Dirty Dancing, and Crazy, Stupid Love to classics like Back to the Future and The Breakfast Club to films like Memento and Heat.
The best concerts I’ve been to: U2 (twice!), the Goo Goo Dolls (twice!), The Lumineers, Mumford, Coldplay, Jimmy Eat World, Grouplove, and Matt & Kim.
New York City has my heart.
Turquoise is my favorite color.
I’m a pinterest-a-holic and adore Instagram. (Follow me! Pinterest and Instagram: @michelle_alattefood)
My all-time favorite dessert is cheesecake, but I’ve never turned down a cookie or slice of cake either.
Some of my favorite recipes from this blog are:
Double Chocolate Chip Mint Cookies
