I'm Sara, and I write Culinerapy. I live in Los Angeles with my cat, Francie Nolan, and my daughter Bailey Louisa.

I've realized I can measure my life by how I feel when I'm in my home kitchen: a tender batch of cookies for a broken-hearted friend, a pitcher of sangria for a much-needed backyard catch-up, a pot of soup for weeknight comfort. And more and more, I value the experience of sharing our time, ideas, and experiences with the people in our lives. And that's where food comes in. Humans gather for food. No matter how busy, how distracted, how overwhelmed, we will stop and gather if there is a promise of food.

So that is my inspiration: Culinerapy is a place to gather, and share thoughts and experiences served up with thoughtfully chosen recipes.
