Welcome to the Blog Hop. It starts with a blogger answering some questions about his or her blogging process. Then, that blogger invites another blogger to participate, who will answer the same questions and then invite ANOTHER blogger to participate.
I've been invited to participate by the lovely and talented, collegiate powerhouse, Mo (Molly) Liss from Memo2Munch. She is a college student studying Dietetics and Nutrition at Indiana University that cooks up some serious good eats. Here's the post where she tagged me. I encourage you to have a look around her food blog and subscribe. She recently travelled to Italy (one of my favorite places!) to study the Mediterranean diet and gluten intolerance. She loves the varieties and flavors of alternative flours just as much as I do <big smile>. Mo and I are soul sistas, for sure!
So here's where I answer the blog hop questions... Ready?!
What am I working on/writing?
- some series about the pleasures of simple, nourishing food
- DIY kimchi at home - incredible(!!) and I’ve been eating it straight from the jar
- raw cacao buckwheat granola (gluten-free)
- Argentine-themed party food for an Evita movie viewing (yes, my kids have been happily eating these squash and goat cheese empanadas as leftovers and begging to eat them for breakfast)
- a visit to a tea emporium and also an olive oil and vinegar emporium
- my favorite fall and winter lunch, Palak Dal
- adventures (and misadventures) from chocolate school and becoming a chocolatier
Thanks, Mo, for tagging me and for your generously kind words!
Now, it's time for me to tag the next blog hop participant and I pick, Anna-Marie at Beauty and the Beets and The Hungry Sprout. You may remember her from when I talked about meeting her at the BlogHer Food Conference in Miami earlier this year (BlogHerFood Conference: Part 1, Part 2).
Ladies and gentlemen... I introduce to you Anna-Marie.
I write two blogs- the first being called Beauty and the Beets where I write about travelling and eating your vegetables. The second is called The Hungry Sprout and I review restaurants in Orlando, New York, South Carolina and anywhere else I travel. I am always on the hunt for the best veggie dishes and veggie burgers. After scouring a restaurant for The Hungry Sprout, I will try to recreate my favorite dishes for Beauty and the Beets.
I travelled as a Flight Attendant for a major airline where I inherited my love of exploration and visiting new places, but I never cooked a meal in my own kitchen as I was never home. I survived on fast food and airport cuisine. I didn’t even know how to boil water.
Since retiring from the airlines, I have learned to cook and even started a food blog! I am addicted to collecting Vegan cookbooks as I would say we eat about 90% Vegan at my house.
I am also a 5K junkie- I have completed two half marathons and will run my third this November. I try run at least one organized 5K race a month. My boyfriend and I often schedule our weekend getaways around a race.
I love to use blogger conferences as another excuse to travel. Conferences not only allow me to grow my blog but also have the opportunity to meet new blogging friends like Lisa, who I met at BlogHer Food this past May in Miami.
Have a wonderful day!
