Colorful Concoctions

I appreciate a thoughtful plate with extra care and attention to aesthetic and fresh quality. 

During my college years, the glory of Los Angeles food culture flipped my Bay Area-raised world upside down. I developed a sensitive, yet picky palate that flows with the rhythms of flavors in well-made dishes. I even picked up the tools myself and started cooking. My concoctions quickly evolved from means for survival into one-person gourmet plates full of colors. A delightful satisfaction to my palate and eyes. Mmmm.

Sprinkled with my inner adventurous chef and kissed with colors, here are #pieanaplates!

Blushing Greens

i love colors in pairs. When the right shades come together, they are a match made in heaven.

My all-time favorite? Forest green and blush pink.

I'm a girly girl at heart and a lover of greens and plants. Whenever I come across this pair, my heart beats faster and my eyes get wider. These contrasting colors make magic happen in plants, fashion, architecture - and all other applicable mediums.

The duo never fails to do the following:

 - No matter the context of the image, their coexisting presence is a reason enough to make my "inspiration" list.

- The combination make the masterpiece. Not the beautiful person, place or thing surrounding, holding, or wearing the colors. Or the lighting or composition. Period.

- The discovery of this duo anywhere feeds my heart like trying an exotic ice cream flavor - and loving every bite.

The list of joy, delight, happiness and all good feelings will never end.

An invincible duo to my aesthetically picky eyes - here is Blushing Greens for you!
