- Why did I decide to start a Food Blog?
I decided to start a food blog for two reasons. First because I absolutely love food, not just eating food, but also cooking good food, especially for the people I love. There is nothing more rewarding than hearing your family say that the meal you planned and cooked tastes good. Second, because as I grow “wiser”, I realize that most the memories I have so far were created around food.
- How long have you been cooking?
Since I got married in 1995 and moved to the US. Growing up in Brazil, I didn’t have a lot of opportunities to cook. In Brazil, it was common for a middle class family to have a full time cook in the house. Although I often wanted to be in the kitchen and get my hands dirty, my mother was always telling me to get out of there. I did learn a lot a lot by watching my grandmothers whenever I had a chance.
- There are so many food blogs and recipes available at the Internet, what makes yours any different?
You are absolutely right, there are lots and lots of recipes, food blogs and cookbooks out there. Many times, I research online for something to cook. But the recipes that made to this site are the ones that I either learned growing up from my family/friends, that I have created or that I have successfully adapted after many trials and errors.
- What do you with all the food you cook?
A lot of food goes through this house with my teenagers and friends. Also, I often take some of the food to friends and coworkers that enjoy eating as much as I do. Hardly any food goes to waste in this house.
