Welcome to Left Coast Contessa! My name is Katherine. I’m a 23 year old law student cultivating a healthy lifestyle and exploring Los Angeles.
The first challenge for Project Food Blog, a blogging competition hosted by Foodbuzz, is to introduce my blog and describe what defines me as a blogger. This has made me to think, who am I as a blogger?
Well, my food philosophy is simple: I love delicious, delectable indulgences crafted from clean, local ingredients.
I enjoy sipping cocktails,
putting together pizzas,
indulging in dessert,
exploring my surroundings,
all while studying for my law degree.
Food blogging is my escape from everyday.
I enjoy cooking with luxurious ingredients but I live on a federally funded student loan budget.
I believe in wine
and cupcakes like I believe in voting: early and often.
I am your average 23 year old student. I like to make special, extravagant recipes while accommodating my student budget. I don’t have a lot of time or money, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be special or that it has to be frozen.
Vote for me starting September 20th!
What a fun post! I just discovered your blog through Project Food Blog.
What a well written post, I love the photographs! As another 23 year old I totally agree with what you say, being on a budget doesn’t mean having to eat bad food!
What better place to be in for fresh ingredients than California? If nothing else, produce keeps me in the Bay Area. Good luck in PFB, Just voted for you!

Hi Katherine! Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately?), I’m a huge sucker both malbec and nice looking wine labels, so that Layer Cake looks phenomenal. Congrats too, on your 10k — the scenery of running through Santa Monica must have been fabulous! Good luck on your half mary in November!
I just came across your post and have to say that I truly enjoyed it! Love your profile picture from the beach. Best of luck to you!! I just voted!
Congratulations on the weight loss, keep up the great work! I can totally relate to the stresses of being a student and trying to live a healthy lifestyle. I also believe in wine and cupcakes 🙂 everything in moderation! Love your blog!
The pictures look great! You have a very fun and balanced life. I love exploring LA and you definitely have the freshest produce around to play and create with! Wishing you the best of luck on the competition! ^_^
