Exploring, creating, & reflecting one day at a time


My name is Rachel.

Piece of Cake, Piece of Mind is the lovechild of boredom and necessity.

Boredom because this blog began back in the summer between my freshman and sophomore years in college. Necessity because I needed a creative outlet to balance out my chosen engineering major.

I’ve grown a lot since then and may no longer be studying engineering, but as I move forward in my life & career, the motives remain pretty much the same. In my older wiser age I also see the benefits of chronicling the events of my life, big and small.

All photos on this blog are taken by me, unless otherwise indicated. I’ve been doing photo for about four years now, and would probably die without it.  My gear: Nikon D90 or N80.  For food photos, I mostly shoot with my nifty fifty f/1.4 or my 60mm micro lens.  Travel photos are generally taken with the 18-200mm.

I will try to keep the posts as food-related as possible, but I can’t really guarantee anything.
