I’m Ciarra Colacino.
I’m a recipe writer, a cookbook collector, and one of the few who prefers to eat their spaghetti with chopsticks.
I began blogging in 2012 for Popular Paleo, a blog dedicated to squeaky clean Paleo recipes. Since then I’ve decided to expand into The Colacino Kitchen where I can cook for everyone, including vegan, vegetarian, and recipes with zero restrictions.
Paleo was my life for a time, but I’m ready to cook food inspired by what I grew up eating.
Raised in a Chinese-Italian household, there’s so much more going on in my kitchen than cauliflower rice and spaghetti squash–though, I totally stand by my method for roasted spaghetti squash. The Colacino Kitchen is a celebration of great food–some sentimental, some healthy, some indulgent.
Would you like to work together?
I collaborate on food-related projects, speak on the subjects of Paleo, diet dogma, and body image. I offer tips to manage grocery budgets, meal planning strategies, and how to find balance in the chaos. I endorse products that improve the experience of home cooks and food lovers, regardless of skill or dietary preference. Can I share yours? Send me a message below and we’ll work out the details.
