So why this food blog? And other questions...
Why this food blog?
Good question. Basically I love food and people have started to notice my many Facebook posts about it. So, I figured I'd use this as the outlet for sharing my food adventures (and sometimes recipe cravings) and use Facebook more normally (whatever that means). Also, I try so many new recipes I have a hard time keeping track of ones I really love and which ones are only so so. This way I'll have a written memory and not some vague recollection of a really good blueberry lemon cake.
But don't you have another blog?
Yes, but that one's private. Although any of my friends and family can request an invitation, I wanted my food writings to be more accessible. And not bore all my relatives with tales of my latest cinnamon roll craze.
What food will I find here?
Mostly desserts (as you can tell from the blog header). Sugar and butter are my best friends. That may be a slight exaggeration, but only slight. And also, ironically, pretty healthy meals (most times). I don't get my eating habits either. Maybe I feel like if I eat pretty healthy most of the day it makes up for my baking addiction? Maybe...
Do I get to see pretty pictures?
I know a big draw of a lot of food blogs is the wonderful photography. I'm still very much in the developing stages of my saliva-inducing food styling and photographing ability. I'll be working to improve, but know that for now, it looks much better in real life!
Do you make your own recipes?
Sometimes. Mostly I use other much more skilled people's recipes. Often I substitute things and play with them. I'll always let you know my recipe source.
That's all for now! I'll be posting about my culinary adventures here including successful and failed attempts. If you want more, come back! Feel free to ask any more questions in the comments of this or any other post.
