About me!

Thanks for stopping by! I always appreciate new visitors!

Me in some of Quincy's gear

About me…I’m Koko, a 25 year old living at home in Los Angeles with my lovely parents (my mother is a chef, hence where I get ALL of my inspiration from). I currently work with talent (I used to do PR) and have an amazing boyfriend who happens to be an officer in the Army. He moved up to Fairbanks, AK which is what we call interior Alaska about 11 months ago…

That's right... interior

And he deployed to Afghanistan in April of 2011 for a one year deployment.

Quincy and his guys

(see if you can find him)

And now we are dealing with deployment and all that comes with that (missing each other, not talking, worry, anxiety, sleeplessness nights). But I am so lucky to be surrounded by friends and family and especially these two pups:



I love to cook, bake, spend time with friends and surround myself with lots of love during the hardest year of my life. Thanks again for stopping by, leave a comment if there is something specific you would like to see! Or reach out to me directly:

  1. Koko – you WON (well, runner up) in my GU giveaway!! Send me your address and I’ll get some samples out to you pronto!

  2. Hi! I’m so happy you commented on my blog!! I live in North Pole… the sad little town neighbor to Fairbanks 🙂 If you have any questions or need anything please let me know. From one military girl to another I’m here! Even if its for a venting buddy. Hope things are going well, and that his R&R is bliss!

  3. I loved to know more about you, I would have liked to read more! I notice that we have one thing in common … military wife!
    I met my boyfriend when I got involved in the Navy in 2009.
    The kitchen has a different meaning when it is in your hands!
    I’m sorry for my bad english, but I am French 🙂

    Such a treat to watch & read someone real. Someone who enjoys life & seems to be a free spirit. I know Fairbanks well actually being born in the north & from the Canadian YUKON which is Alaskan neighbour. Beautiful untouched wilderness & pure. I wish you well & your family & a safe return for all the military men & women. Its a tough life regardless of the borders & I hold much respect for all men & women that give there all for us all to be safe.
    Take care 🙂

    • Thank you so much for your comment, it truly means so much to me and I may be asking you a lot of Fairbanks related questions when Q gets back as last time I visited it was so snowy we hardly did anything fun! I am looking forward to visiting when it is Summer and semi-warm! xo

  5. Nice to meet you! I just found your blog and love it, you have great recipes. 🙂

  6. Thank you for your kind comment! We girlfriends have it tough, but it only makes us stronger. You are one incredible lady and I’m looking forward to keeping up with your adventures (and trying some recipes)! 🙂

  7. I’m so glad you found my blog! I love finding other bloggers who are with military guys. 🙂 You’re so strong for getting through this deployment–don’t forget it! (Even on the tough days, you’re still strong!) I hope it goes by quickly. 🙂
