Hi there and welcome to SohdaLex ~

I created this blog to express my love for foodtravel, and life.

My obsession with food began in high school and has since been a strong passion of mine.  I love the stress-relieving qualities of cooking, and the combination of friends and good food. I was vegetarian for a good number of years, and have dappled in a little bit of everything, but am always open to new foods and ideas.  If the opportunity presents itself, try it. I believe in the saying ‘everything in moderation.’  Life is too short to not broaden your tastes buds with everything that is out there to try.

I grew up immersed in art everything from painting and drawing to pottery and fibers.  Now I’m trying to force this knowledge into a computer, but I’m hoping some cool projects find there way on here as well.

Living in France for a few months in the Fall of 2010 was the inspiration in finally kick starting this blog into full gear.  I hope to share with you the good and the bad of someone trying to live, have fun, and eat right in this crazy world.

Look for me on facebook

  1. Alexa,

    Your recipes are after my own heart. Somehow I missed the kale chip post. I discovered these last spring and love them tossed with olive oil, garlic and nutritional yeast. I really got excited today when I saw that you garnish soups with pomegranate seeds. Most recently I sprinkled them on butternut squash, apple and coconut milk curry soup so I totally get what you’re talking about.

    I hope all is well in NYC. I know your folks miss having you around but are so happy and excited for you at the same time.

    Best Regards,

    Libby Bacon

  2. I found your blog while looking for information about Menerbes and I’m really happy I did! First of all your photography is stunning! The images are powerful and you have a way of capturing the essence of the places you visit, that’s not easy. Your blog is very interesting and the recipes are amazing. What a lucky find for me and Kate who is a fine cook as well.

      • I missed your reply, we are getting ready to go to Menerbes in a couple of weeks. We were in the Luberon about 3 years ago, stayed in Roussillon, but only for a week. I’ve been fortunate to see a number of regions in France but this is a special area indeed. I enjoy photography too, will share some of the images when I return. The banana berry pudding cakes – yummmm!
