About Eden

So you really want to know about me?

So much so that you clicked on the tab?!

So much so that you’re still reading this! Wow, you must be really curious!

Well here it is…

I’m a writer, comedian, fashion fiend, novice magician and former chef. I’m also really good at building pillow forts.

Welcome to my blog.

I share commentaries, tips, fashions photos with my “boyfriend” (a stuffed bear named “Mr. Mittens”), interesting finds, recipes, tales of losing my parents, losing my mind, and gaining a fresh take of life.

Don’t take it too seriously. In fact, don’t take anything too seriously.

Totally random, but I’m sitting here watching Millionaire Matchmaker…and I HAVE to ask- were you on there? I just saw one of the mixers, and there was girl there who was a chef & her name was Eden..and I SWEAR she looks just like you. :)
Sorry- had to ask!! (hope you don’t mind…& I couldn’t find a way to email you!)


Theresa July 28, 2011 at 10:21 pm

I second this question! Sitting here, watching millionaire matchmaker, and having the same thought! :)

I feel kind of creepy…but I just turned on the TV and saw this episode. I can understand if it is an uncomfortable topic for you… but that seems right up your alley lol


Eden August 9, 2011 at 12:41 am

not creepy. I’m used to is cause that episode is so old. So what seems right up your alley?


Bee @ B*tchy Bee July 27, 2011 at 2:31 pm

I just found your site (from just finding your old site) and am legit laughing out loud over here. You’re hilarious! I look forward to blog stalking you. Woah, that doesn’t sound creepy at all!


Patrick July 28, 2011 at 7:16 pm

Eden, If I had a blog, I would have a blog baby with you. You’re recipes sound like the sweet call of the bearshark, and I need to try some of em like I need a tattoo of a tiger on a surfboard. You remarked you may only have 3 male readers, congrats on making it may only having 4, I look forward to reading more of your radness.


Haley N July 29, 2011 at 1:26 am

Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh! So I just watched millionaire matchmaker…were you on it?!?!?


Eden July 29, 2011 at 1:49 am

Haley N July 29, 2011 at 4:00 am

No no no I thought it was great!


sarah (the SHU box) July 31, 2011 at 1:26 am

Eden July 31, 2011 at 2:41 am

It was an old episode from like two years ago. They’ve been re-running it a lot lately so check the Bravotv.com show schedule and look for the “Jusitn and Tyler” episode of millionaire matchmaker.


pam August 5, 2011 at 1:06 pm

YOU are hilarious…I just found your blog thru eat, move, write…You will be going into my favorites that I will read every day…I will try not to stalk you as I hardly ever comment on blogs. Keep up the good work..You are doing great..Love the posts.

Katie @ Nutrition in a peanut shell August 21, 2011 at 5:20 pm

Found you through the smart kitchen….

I wish the Blogger community had more yous + wish I had the wit/intelligence/balls to write like you


Cameo August 24, 2011 at 3:39 pm

I can’t believe I never read this before! I literally OMG’d at how amazeballs it was.


Parita @ myinnershakti September 2, 2011 at 6:54 am

Just found your blog. Hilarious! It’s so refreshing to read your thoughts on food, blogging, and life! Can’t wait to follow along. :)


Eden September 2, 2011 at 6:57 am

Oh boy, I’m afraid, I’ll disappoint you! I’m painfully dull and don’t offer very nice food porn.


Julie (A Case of the Runs) September 14, 2011 at 11:28 am

I like your sense of humor!


Rachel Wilkerson September 14, 2011 at 7:52 pm

I think we’re going to get along JUST FINE.


Nat September 21, 2011 at 6:08 pm

You are hilarious! Congrats, you have been bookmarked! :)


wutdafuhk September 26, 2011 at 10:32 am

I just came over from Twitter to see what was here. Some cute stuff and some great recipes(Yum).
No strumpet stuff? Aww:) That would’ve been well worth the cross country trip;)


Jorge Sanchez November 1, 2011 at 9:16 pm

I stumbled across the “Status Update” blog entry by accident when I was (and with no shame, I will admit) in search of one of those pictures with ironic sayings on them that sometimes go viral on Facebook: “Everytime I go to the gym, I tell Facebook”. I ended up laughing out loud by myself like a crazy person in a quiet+public area when I read your entry. I can definitely appreciate your humor. I look forward to following :-)


Maxime December 11, 2011 at 11:11 am

Eden, your writing style is hilarious!! and I have to say you are kind of how I wish I could be: strong and not afraid to say what’s on your mind! I really,really respect you and I love your recipes!


a different eden December 12, 2011 at 2:53 pm

Okay, I’ll ‘fess up. And I only clicked on it for the name.. yep, I’m vain and have to know about anybody else out there in the universe with my first name. Your blog was on the sidebar of a link I found on twitter for spinach pancakes.

But now I’m enamoured, not for our parents’ shared good taste in names, but in your crackling good writing.


Eden December 12, 2011 at 8:38 pm

Yes, but I bet you dont pronounce it like me. I say “eh-den” not “eee-den”
but yea, we have a cool name. No argument there.


Emma December 18, 2011 at 9:13 am

Okay, this totally isn’t spam, but I saw this and thought of you (for obvious reasons)
(I really hope the link works, if it doesn’t, I’m going to feel like an idiot)


Sherwood January 10, 2012 at 4:00 pm

Hi Eden!
I guess I’m kinda sketchy because I don’t have a website… or whatever. Anyway I absolutely love your blog. I found it recently at a point in my life where I was very near tipping point into big time EDs. So yeah, its pretty much saving my life right now. You’re sense of humor is awesome and I laugh out loud at almost every single post.

I thought of you just now during dinner (in a totally non-creepy way,) when I was nauseously choking down my zillionth salad. Right in the middle, I realized I really fucking hate salads… and I asked myself what Eden would do. So I put down my fork, dumped the whole darn thing in the trash and made myself a big Greek yogurt with sliced bananas. I’m vowing never to eat “low-calorie-salads-that-make-me-feel-like-throwing-up-WHILE-I-eat-them” ever again.


Sarah January 16, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Just found you through GOMI…I may love you.


Eden January 16, 2012 at 6:32 pm

GOMI ers are such “haterz”! haha, totally kidding. Welcome.
I love me too.


Atiqa April 10, 2012 at 8:43 am

Just found your blog and I love it!

I’d share my website, but you would probably just make fun of it :)

Either way, I’ll be visiting yours often!


Eden April 10, 2012 at 8:55 am

Oh please, I only make fun of websites like facebook 😉


J. Yo June 29, 2012 at 10:22 am



Rob June 29, 2012 at 12:45 pm

Hey Eden,

Found your blog from ‘A Merry Life.’ I dig it. Is the comment page the best way to reach you? Or do you have an email address I could contact you at?

Look forward to hearing back,


Eden June 29, 2012 at 5:17 pm

yes, you can also email me at eden.leora@gmail.com


Ellie December 26, 2014 at 1:21 pm

Look u really inspire me, and in a book I read a girl who wrote a blog replied to all her comments so I’m hoping u will do the same, u have seemed to have a hard life (loosing your parents n all that) and in your blogs they really help me get through daily life as I worry about the future A LOT and what will happen (I worry a lot) and I was hoping that u would do a blog about that, I hope this has helped xxx


Eden January 15, 2015 at 5:11 pm

Aw thanks for your comment.

I’m a little behind on my blog comments but I read them :)

Thanks for the kind words
