About Allison

Hi. I’m Allison. I’m searching. Constantly seeking ways to make every day extraordinary. I thought I’d use this blog to share what I learn along the way.

I’ve co-founded a successful restaurant and wrote a best-selling cookbook. I run long, windy trails at sunrise, and cook big pots of pasta at sunset. I write. In between, I spend as much time as I can with two wildly adorable little boys, Nico and Luca, and my irresistibly endearing husband, Alejandro.

I need to make the most of every day. When I don’t, I get antsy.

I’d like to share some stories, some tips, some lessons I’ve learned and are continuing to learn.
