About

Hi! Let me introduce myself…

My name is Kristina. I’m an American expat living in Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas Gerais. Born and raised in a small town in Michigan, I was in for quite a ride when my husband and I packed our bags and moved to Brazil in 2015. American Wife, Brazilian Kitchen is all about my experiences living abroad. Join me for recipes and reflections as I discover Brazilian food and culture, cook up some tasty dishes, and contemplate life as a wife, mother, artist and free spirit.
