Hello, friends! My name is Kiersten. I live in Charlotte, NC (although I was born and raised a Jersey girl) with my boyfriend and our two kitties. I sure hope you guys like cats, because you’re going to hear about my cat, Merlin, an awful lot.

I love to cook, bake, and play in the kitchen! The purpose of this blog is to talk about the fun things I’ve been making and to share new recipes. The recipes on this page will be 100% plant-based and cruelty free.

When I’m not cooking I like to read, write stories, do yoga, and have solo travel adventures. (Check out my other blog, where I talk about books and other nerdy things: https://onceuponaspineblog.wordpress.com/)
