I’m a hungry girl from Vancouver, BC, and I love food. Food makes me happy. To be precise, good food makes me happy. Like, really happy. However, there is a problem in my way to pure carbs-bliss-lalaland. Name: Bad food. The internet is filled with amazing looking foods that end up tasting like a total “meh”. And on top of that, there is not a single comment to be found regarding it! All of the comments are all like “omg that looks amazing!!!”, “totally pinned!!”, “wow im SO craving it right now!!”. It shouldn’t be a surprise that I don’t find these comments helpful a single bit. Do you?
Another problem I have with current food blogs – is the new health obsession. You’re trying to tell me an avocado mousse taste like chocolate cuz you’ve added some no-fat,no-sugar,no-good cocoa powder to it? Please.
I’m just tired from all of this pretentiousness. I want to eat happy foods, and putting avocado in dessert is not a way to do that. I want quality food, with quality ingredients and quality combinations (no peanut butter-chocolate-caramel-sprinkles-pretzel bark recipes, sorry 😛). So I’ve decided to start my own blog – a place where I can document good recipes, and share what I didn’t like about the not so good ones.
I’m writing the blog I want to read: concise information with good recipes – tested and assessed by a perfectionist (aka, me). Recipes that will make us happy, with food that is unapologetically delicious. If that means that we’ll need to use cream instead of coconut milk, or butter instead of apple sauce – then so be it!
My Promise to You
- There will be no “homemade cinnamon buns!!”-style recipes that involve Pillsbury products or Betty Crocker icings.
- There will be no paragraphs upon paragraphs (upon paragraphs…) about my in-laws, children, or golden retriever (none of which I have).
- And most importantly – no 20 photos of the same plate from various angles. I mean, seriously?!
