I’m l.Alexandrea, the writer, pastry chef, coach and creator behind The Passionate Food Blogger from Verbena’s Kitchen. I am currently introducing my new membership site Verbena’s Inner Circle, where I dig deep into how I discovered the magic to living a passionate stress free life. It took me three years to create a new life for myself after going through complete burnout. I was such a workaholic and loved to work, but my body decided it was time for more. On this site, you will find recipes, easy cooking tips, insights into living a healthy balanced life, videos that explore beautiful gardens, and interviews with fellow bloggers. This blog is dedicated to help you live a simpler, balanced, happy, passionate, joy-filled life! What are my favorite things to do? Eating fantastic food, playing tourist, relaxing, and visiting gardens around the world! What are your favorite things? Go ahead; enjoy my site and indulge!
