Hi! I’m Adrianna and this is my face:

AuthorPhoto

This is my lil’ corner on da internets called A Cozy Kitchen. In real life (not internet life), I live in Los Angeles, California with my boyfriend Joshua and my corgi Amelia.

This is a place where corgis and pie and butter are celebrated.

We go on adventures and make stuff like s’mores pavlovas and cakes full of matcha and cookies as big as your face! We have a good time. I’m glad you’re here because I’m guessing you’re looking for some fun and recipes and food. You’ve come to the right place.

I have a book coming out! It’s called The Year of Cozy. You can read more about it here and here and pre-order it here (thank you!).

On a weekly basis, I write for PBS Food. This blog is usually updated a few times a week. I update Instagram even more. If Facebook is your jam, you can find me on that too.

I often times write recipes and shoot photos for brands/private clients. If you’d like to work together, I’m excited to hear from you! Contact: adrianna at a cozy kitchen dot com

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 love your website. Thank you for such beautifully appealing layouts and delicious, easy-to-follow recipes. Your roasted brussel sprout leaves idea is genius! I made them for New Year’s Day Dinner and threw them in a bowl with wild rice, roasted black eye peas (never cooked them that way before, but yum!), sautéed mushrooms and sprinkles crispy bacon over the top and it was a huge hit! I can’t imagine why I’d never eaten B-Sprouts this way before?!?! Happy New Year to you!

I’m a serious foodie and love your site…thanks for sharing the good stuff with the rest of us! :-)

Have to say that I just stumbled upon your site because I was searching for a chickpea harissa recipe and I love your blog. Great recipes with lots of pictures and fun anecdotes.

We also live in LA and just rescued a pup we found on PetFinder two weeks ago. He’s a joy (if a bit of a handful.) Rescue’s definitely the way to go. And there’s always a way to work with your landlord (addl deposit, pet rent,) if you’re reluctant to move.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks.

I just wanted to say how much I loved not only the food, but the comic relief when reading your recipes on the website. It’s so refreshing to know theres someone else out there that has the same passion towards great foods, taste and respect for ingriedients….it’s also nice to read your little stories which make the recipes, in my humble opinion, a bit more fun. I LOVE the caprese salad..make it all the time, especially when i want to make people think I know what I am doing..lol Thank you, and I havn’t tried one of your recipes yet that hasn’t knocked mine or my kids (including the kid I call husband) socks off.! I will be keeping my eye out for your book this spring for sure!

Hello Adrianna, I found your blog via Vintage Kitchen Notes, and am so glad I did! I was reading your Green Spaghetti post, and could just SEE my mom, in place of yours! She, too, was not to be messed with…and she, too, became my best friend. I think the first words I remember her saying was, “Learn to cultivate a taste for…” whatever it was I didn’t want to eat at the time! But, I DID learn to like…LOVE all kinds of food, and became the foodie I am today because of her! I learned so much from her…I miss her so much. Thank you for that little snippet of “mind-rewind” I had while enjoying your story!

Just wanted to make a comment about your picture. I don’t like it. I’m not saying this to say that I don’t like you. Of course, I don’t know you. I just don’t like the picture of you. Your glance sideways is really awkward and hides you. I think if you are going to post a picture of yourself on your website, it should be face forward. So people can see you. Not cheeky you. Anyway, i’m going to try that mayonnaise cake recipe if I ever reach my goal weight and I can afford to splurge a bit.

Reply

Danielle January 27, 2015 at 4:05 pm

I think the picture is perfect. You do not have to appeal to what anyone’s sense of a “good picture” is. The portrait you chose seems to capture your personality, and if an image cannot do that, then what is the point?! A boring portrait of you facing forward would be just that, boring! Be unique! Don’t change it!

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!

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.
