Welcome, y’all! I’m Myra, a scientist with a love for cocina y de coser. I’m here to inspire you (1) to cook easy & tasty & healthy meals from scratch using whole foods, and (2) to sew your own handmade wardrobe. If you love cooking and sewing as much as I do, you’ll feel right at home here. Wanna know more? Keep reading!
I’m a thirty-something (coffee-addicted) cognitive neuroscientist and this little corner of the web began as a creative project just for myself. Cooking and sewing were the two things that helped me keep my sanity while completing my PhD (*cough*… and wine… lots of it!), and this blog right here was my happy place when I first moved from New Zealand to Canada to complete a postdoctoral fellowship. That’s me in a nutshell.
Still curious? In 2013, while collecting data for a research study, I’ve met my husband Chris in Germany (great story for another day!). We recently moved to the U.S. where I now work as a professor at a university. My cooking & sewing is inspired by all the different places I’ve lived in and been to. It’s been quite the journey so far, and I promise to keep you all up to date on what’s going on behind the scenes.
TONOS DE LIMÓN
My main focus is on food since it’s still waaay quicker to cook a meal from scratch than to sew a garment from scratch BUT there will be plenty of sewing projects along the way (promise!). I always aim to provide you with inspiring recipes and sewing projects once or twice a week (sometimes less though!). If you’re new here and need a place to get started, check out some of my most popular posts:
- Pan de plátano vegano
- Avena durante la noche Chai Latte
- Patatas crujientes
- Pesos del patrón de costura (Tutorial)
- Tofino Pants de Sewaholic
- Emil Hoodie por Zierstoff
I believe in recipes that inspire you to cook from scratch (not complicate your life!). Like you, I’m busy. That’s why most of my recipes are quick & easy to prepare in under 30 minutes using simple ingredients that you are likely to have in your pantry. All of my recipes fall into at least one of these three categories:
- Comida sana: Recetas llenas de vegetales.
- Comida rápida y fácil: Recetas que requieren 30 minutos o menos para prepararse.
- Comida comfortable: Recetas que todos amarán
LOS PROYECTOS DE COSTURA
When I’m not cooking, you can find me at my sewing table or daydreaming about new sewing projects. I am such a fabric addict and I have a huge stockpile of sewing patterns (anyone else?!). I love independent sewing patterns and some of my favourite designers are listed below:
- Para los hombres: Thread Theory, Seamwork
- Para mujeres: République du Chiffon, Pauline Alice, Papercut, Tilly and the Buttons, Sew Over It
- Para niños: Poppy & Jazz, Lybstes, Compagnie M.
