About

Welcome to my Ocean View Kitchen! I decided to start this blog so I can share my passion for creative food. My food philosophy is enjoying everything in a balanced way. I believe that everything in moderation is good, whether it’s burgers, pasta or even cake; they all have a place in our diets. Some days, I feel like cooking something light and fresh and other days, something warm and hearty. 

The recipes and ideas you’ll find here revolve around my edible inspirations generated from my playtime in the kitchen and my love for all types of cuisine. I hope that through the delicious dishes I create, you too, will discover the whole new world of amazing food!

So, why “Ocean View Kitchen”? Well, that’s simple… I live in San Diego and have a lovely ocean view from my kitchen.

Welcome to my blog and happy eating!

Olga

        I heard it’s been quite toasty down there. It’s been beautiful weather here in Montana.
