How long have you been blogging and why did you start?
I officially started in September 2014. Previous to that I was playing around with my blog and at the same time my sister started one as a career. She asked me to go to a blogging conference with her and my mind was blown away. Up until then I didn’t know you could make this a career. I learned so much at that conference.
Do you have a secret recipe you aren’t willing to share?
No, not at all. All of my recipes are very simple and usually low carb. If I have a cooking secret of any kind I like to share it with anyone who would be interested.
If you were stranded on a desert island with only one food, what would you choose?
I love big tasty salads. I’m talking about ones with meat, cheese, nuts, veggies, seeds … all those good things and of course a great dressing. I eat salads everyday.
How did you come up with your blog’s name?
Originally I wanted to blog about many things, such as my mother in law who has Alzheimers, my son, essential oils, traveling, etc. So the blog was to be about my life and little tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way in each of those subjects. Now I just blog about low carb recipes. To be honest I don’t love my blog name but I don’t want to change it after all this time.
What are you passionate about besides food?
I am passionate about my family and it’s a pretty big family at that. They are evertything to me and that includes my dog Izzy. Food has always played a big part in our family get togethers so to me food and family go hand in hand. I would say most people in my family are foodies too.
What is your favorite food to make?
Are you sick of me talking about salads yet? I love to make salads. In the summer I use whatever we have in the garden. I like to suprise my hubby on the weekends when we have salads with something unusual. There are so many things you can put in a salad.
What is your favorite thing to order when you are out to eat?
Honestly I don’t have a favorite. I like to try new restuarants and whatever they feature is what I usually order. That, or a big salad. ;)
Who are some of your favorite bloggers?
I’m going to keep this to low carb bloggers so two of my favorites are Carolyn from All Day I Dream About Food and Melissa from I Breathe I’m Hungry. I’ve been following their blogs for years and love their recipes.
What are some of your favorite recipes on your blog?
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
I’ve had many degrees and different careers in my life time and this is the best job I’ve ever had. I like that the more work you put into it the more you get out of it. I like that I can make my own hours and the ability to work from anywhere. Mostly I like the creative outlet and learning new things. With blogging, social media and marketing seem to change all the time so I’m always learning something new.
