hello :)  I’m michele.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt the need to be creative. The need has manifested itself in different ways over time, but most recently it has been through the delicious art of food: cooking, baking, experimenting with new ingredients, creating recipes, traveling and tasting foods of other cultures, and incorporating my love of photography to document it all.

I embrace an adventurous, eclectic, healthy and unrestricted style of cooking + eating, and do my best to use whole, unprocessed, plant-based foods, because that’s what my body [and our planet] loves! My body also never fails to crave something sweet and decadent… and that’s where the creativity comes in. I like to experiment with healthier ingredients to create treats that are good for you in the not-bad-for-you kind of way—indulgent bites full of love and bliss, not empty calories ;)

Blissful Bites is a learning thing for me, a place for inspiration and creativity, a collection of my favorite recipes, and a place to connect with all of you who have the same desire to live a healthy, tasty life. Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!
