“Blogging, what’s that? …Why would anyone want to do that?” Well honestly, just a few years ago, that was me. I could not for the life of me, understand why anybody would want to create a blog and put themselves out there for all the world to read. However, after a few years of being exposed to this 21st century phenomenon, it all makes sense. I have decided to blog! And about what? Well, food and recipes! What have women been doing for centuries? Sharing recipes of course. My earlier memories are of my mom phoning up Mrs. W. and asking her for that amazing casserole recipe she made for the last party. Or of my Nana handing my mom a neatly printed recipe card for the best chocolate brownies in town. Scroll ahead a few years and now I’m the one photocopying recipes for colleagues or emailing my sister a recipe for guacamole. I was recently at a baby shower and a guest asked me for the recipes of the 3 dips I had made. I thought, “There has to be an easier way!” The thought germinated….and became this blog! So here I am – Foodie on Board! My hopes are that this blog will be a place where my friends and family can come to find recipes that they have requested, and where I can share their recipes too. In this context, a food blog is perfect. Type out your recipe, take a picture, click “publish” and voilà, we all have the recipe! The best thing – you only have to do it once! So fellow foodies, I hope you enjoy this blog and feel free to send a comment or question. That’s part of the fun of blogging as well .

Hi Julianna! I really enjoy following your blog and checking out all of your great recipes. I’d like to feature you in my upcoming Blog Tour Post. Alex at Dinner Daydreams http://dinnerdaydreams.wordpress.com/2014/06/27/blog-tour/ recently featured me in hers, and now it’s time for me to feature some of my favourite blogs.
If you’re okay with it, I’d list you as one of the featured bloggers in the post, and then you’d do a post next week and choose your three. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Hi Indira. Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. I was doing a bit of wilderness camping with no access to internet!! Thanks so much for wanting to include me in your tour, but I was a part of the tour a couple of months ago and I’m sure people won’t want to hear the same answers all over again. I look forward to reading your post, though! Thanks again and have fun! 😀
