Hi! I’m Natalie. I’m closer to 30 than 20. By day, I’m a PR and social media specialist; by night, I’m, well, still a PR and social media specialist since PR isn’t really a 9-5 job. But during my free time/Sunday evenings/day dreams, I love exploring new things in food, travel, and tech. I’m a self-proclaimed geek, Disney-nerd, and movie enthusiast. I’m not an “expert” in anything in particular, but I don’t think you have to be – get out there and explore any adventure you wish!
Any Adventure is a lifestyle and culture blog featuring recipes, book reviews, geek/pop culture news, travel guides, and more. One day I might be experimenting with a new gluten free pie recipe, the next I might be exploring a new town on the Oregon coast, and the next I might be crafting a new cosplay for a local con. You may occasionally catch a glimpse of my husband, Kevin, and our three cats – Soxy, Detective Mittens, and Ali.
I love trying new things and hope to inspire you to do the same. Because every once in awhile, something goes better than expected. Through this blog, I hope to remind myself and others to notice the little unexpected intrusions of beauty in life, and never stop pursuing adventure

Hi, I’m Waz! I recently relocated from New York City to Portland, Oregon. I’m an architect turned graphic designer, and I discovered my love for food while working in advertising for the wine industry. When I moved to NYC in 2011, I started Let’s Nom Nom as to document my cooking and dining adventures in my new city.
Over the years, I’ve gone from flexitarian to vegetarian to mostly vegan, and my blog has followed me on this journey. A plant-based diet is healthier and kinder to my body, to animals, and to our environment. I believe the best way to win omnivores over is by raising awareness of the positive effects of the plant-based movement and by celebrating great food that just so happens to be vegan. Today, my blog focuses on all things veggie, from restaurant reviews, to vegetarian recipes, to lifestyle and local events.
Lastly, why Let’s Nom Nom? Because food brings people together, and great food is best enjoyed with company!

The summer after second grade, at the tender age of eight, I started my first job. In the early morning hours, when the dew was still heavy on the vines, I boarded an old school bus with my siblings and most of the other town kids and rode to Hentze’s Berry Fields. Here I would spend the day picking strawberries. For pennies. This wasn’t exploitative child labor, it was a way of life in this small town nestled in the farmlands of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. It was a lot of things, more of which I’ll write about later, but for me it was the beginning of a passion for food. A passion that I have been blessed to make a career. Deep in my being is that red headed girl with the berry stained jeans. Strawberry Woman is the grown up version of that little girl, armed with lessons from a complicated life and countless hours cooking, ready to guide, instruct and inspire others toward a more peaceful and creative relationship with the kitchen.
Trying to bridge the gap between loving good and being healthy, Tastes of Tom reviews recipes from food blogs, cookbooks, websites and also Portland restaurants and dining.
Its not so much that I thrive on awkward situations, it’s more that I seem to find myself in a lot of them, and thrive anyway… I think that life is all about embracing the every day encounters that give life a little bit of flavor… AKA loving on the little stuff… a lot. Mostly this is a place for me to tell stories about my life, what I’m cooking, crafting, reading, thinking, enjoying, and feeling on any given day. I don’t always proofread, though I probably should start. I like pickles, champagne, peanut sauce, the Red Sox, adventures and some other things. I’ve spend the last seven years directly and indirectly orbiting the Oregon food and wine scene, (delicious!) but mostly I’m just living and loving life in the Willamette Valley. Technically I’m a fashion consultant and boutique manager,but I also teach yoga and barre, and spend a lot of my free time wrangling my troll baby of a bulldog, pretending like I know how to garden, and working on developing my skills as a domestic goddess.
