About Us

We’re Raelene and Lauren – two good friends who share a passion for cooking, traveling and discovery. Share our journey as we reinvent ourselves…

After retiring from a career in corporate marketing about 10 years ago, I traveled extensively with my husband and spent some of those years exporting furniture and accessories from Southeast Asia. I also indulged my passions for exercise and food by becoming a certified Pilates instructor and graduating from culinary school. My husband and I continue to travel to many exotic locations which provide opportunities to experience the flavors and cooking styles of many international cuisines. I am happy to have a forum with which to share these experiences with others.

I am a wife and mother of three – a few years away from the empty nest! Born in Honolulu, raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, and living the past fifteen years in Southern California, I am a West Coast girl at heart. I started out as a CPA in public accounting, moved into consulting and was constantly seeking challenges while choosing later to stay at home to raise my children. I have reinvented myself as a cook, traveler, photographer, and chronicler of all things interesting to me. I love to explore, adventure and continuously learn! I look forward to sharing with you.
