Marisa at Margaritas In The Rain

Aloha and thanks for stopping by Margaritas In The Rain!

My name is Marisa, and I’m the gal behind the blog. Needless to say, I’m sliiiightly food obsessed.

I grew up in Hawaii but started this blog while living in Portland, Oregon. After 10 years of fun in PDX, I recently moved back to Honolulu with with my husband, Sam, and our first child dog, Lola. You’ll read about both of them on this blog. A lot.

I’m also a new momma, and I have plenty to say about that, too.

But let’s get back to the food. I cook approachable recipes. With an island twist. Because, you can take the girl from Hawaii, but you can’t take Hawaii from the girl. In addition to my own kitchen concoctions, I occasionally post recipes from some of my favorite chefs, restaurant spotlights, travel adventures and more.

I work full time in marketing and social media, but Margaritas In The Rain is one of my favorite hobbies. I believe that there’s a perfect dish for every occasion. And just for the record, margaritas work with any occasion – from celebrations to rainy days.

Oh – and make sure to follow along on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Cheers!
