About Me


I’m Paula. I’m a teacher, food blogger, dog lover, and fitness junkie.

Thank you for stopping by; I am so glad you’re here.


What is Paula’s Plate?

Paula’s Plate is the result of my many years experimenting in the kitchen. It is a collection of delicious recipes – most healthy, some utterly indulgent – that I think you will love. It is also a labor of love and a continual work in progress…I am still learning how to photograph food and make it look good. If you stumble upon an old recipe with a horrible picture, don’t be deterred. It will still be delicious.

What kind of food is on Paula’s Plate?

From indulgent Chocolate Cherry Cake to a refreshing Strawberry Avocado and Chicken Salad, you will find something for everyone on this site. In addition, I am both gluten-free and lactose intolerant so most of my recipes have room for variation in order to fit a wide array of dietary needs.

Things that I love (in no particular order):

My husband, Ryan; Getting lost in an incredible book; Walking my dog, Bruno; My family; Perfectly fresh fruit; Completing lengthy projects; Laughing with friends; The smell of fresh bread; Leaving class knowing my students “got it;” Singing loudly in the car; The endless possibilities of a new day.



I’d love to hear from you! Please get it touch.
