Why Rachael in the Cities, you ask?

Well, I'm Rachael (hi!) and I make my home in the Twin Cities area in Minnesota, that is Minneapolis and St Paul. Side note - in case you were wondering about the cherry on a spoon in my site header, it is actually an iconic Minneapolis landmark! Kind of goes well as a representation of my love for food.

I started this blog during the break I had between college graduation and starting my first full-time job. I thought it would be a good way for me to document my transition from college life to "real" life and everything else in between. I also wanted a creative outlet outside of my day job.

These are a few of my favorite things and what you can expect me to write about: exploring new places, making food, eating food, health and fitness, fashion, spending time with family and friends, etc...

Happy to have you here and thanks for following along!
