Hi, I’m Erica! It’s nice to meet you through this crazy little blog.
A bit about me: I’m a lover of everything food, although I’m mostly vegetarian these days. I like eating healthy meals, but I love eating chocolate. This blog is a place where I try to balance the two.
The name Coffee & Quinoa comes from two of my favorite breakfast foods. Yes, I like quinoa for breakfast! I’m a morning person, and the best part of my day is often sitting in the kitchen sipping my mug of French press coffee and eating breakfast.
Outside of the kitchen, I work full-time in marketing. I spend the rest of my free time running, doing yoga, and traveling when I can.
Some more of my favorites: novels, The Bachelor, everything German, red wine, hoppy beer, peanut butter, sunbathing, and my hometown of Boston. I live in Salt Lake City with my boyfriend Nate, who is in medical school here. He’s my favorite, too.
I started this blog as a way to share what I was cooking with my family and friends when I moved cross-country. It’s grown since then, and gotten even more fun! I still have lots to learn about cooking, photography, and running a website. Good thing I’m loving sharing it all as I go along!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
