My name is Stephanie and I'm a 26 year old living in downtown Chicago. I live with my boyfriend and our cat, in Chicago's Little Italy neighborhood. When I'm not working during my day job as a civil engineer, you can usually find me running along the lakefront of Lake Michigan, practicing yoga at my favorite studio or trying new restaurants around the city. I am an avid runner and yogi, but even more so I love to cook and try new recipes. I try to live a fun and healthy lifestyle and to be as active as possible. All of my recipes include mostly healthy ingredients, but I love an occasional splurge.
