Oh, Hey!

Hi! I’m Cindy, aka Hungry Girl por Vida. Home cook and baker, recipe enthusiast, avid doodler, maker of stuff, lover of all things pretty, mom, wife, sister, aunt, daughter, niece, friend, and dog-mom. Also, a girl…who is hungry, and it’s for life.

I started Hungry Girl por Vida way back in 2008 as an outlet for post-undergrad-doldrums and it grew into something I could never have imagined. This blog is a total creative outlet and something I have come to love. Cooking, to me, is where the practical meets the creative and pretty.  You will find recipes and photos that (hopefully!) inspire and make you hungry. I really only post recipes that I want to eat in the hope that you will want to eat them too. There are a lot of sweet treats, some breakfast fare, and a smattering of savory recipes.

My work has been featured elsewhere in/on Betty Crocker, Popsugar Select Food, Artful Blogging Magazine, Couch Magazine (Germany), HuffPost Taste, Buzzfeed, Women’s Weekly Magazine (UK), and more. I am available for freelance work–if you think we’d be a good fit, let’s chat!

When I’m not cooking in the kitchen or trawling the internets, I can be found hanging with my husband (Sean), our son (Casper), and our two dogs, in Portland, Oregon.

Let’s be friends! I love hearing from you, so feel free to comment or email me via my contact form or here: cindy@hungrygirlporvida.com
