ABOUT THIS BLOG
How many blogs do you think start off with “food is my love language?” Maybe a lot… Let’s try something else. I’ve always been jealous of those people who love something so fiercely that they are rarely bored of it. Whatever that passion was, I never felt the same. I like a lot of things, but over the last few years I think I finally understand. I never tire of cooking with plant-based ingredients or sharing meals with those I love, and that is exciting.
My name is Laren, and I live in Colorado. I’m a graduate student focused on public lands governance and environmental policy who enjoys a good bit of rock climbing. I certainly did not go to culinary school (although I am considering it), but have a talented mother and large collection of cookbooks and favorite food bloggers from which I have learned from and developed my own style.
ABOUT THE NAME
Speaking of my own style, “A La” can be translated from French to mean “In the style of.” And so, this blog will be filled with recipes, thoughts, and banter, all of which will be in the style of me.
