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, a smattering of savory recipes, plus a few sprinkles of miscellany.

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.

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, Jezebel and Luxe, 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
