My heritage is primarily Italian and German. I sure love to cook my Italian, it’s hard not too when your mother is 100% and that’s what you grew up with! Over the years though, I have branched out and challenge not only my cooking skills with new techniques, cuisines and healthy renditions, but I challenge my taste buds too! Check out my Flickr photos to see a sampling of dishes I have cooked.
I also welcome taste-testing opportunities! I participated on Orlando Baking Company’s blogger review panel, where I tested and shared recipes for their new True Grains bread line. If you have partnership ideas, or similar food blogger opportunities, drop me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
A few quick thoughts about This Girl’s Gotta Eat!:
- My grandpa always said if you can read, you can cook. He was right! Which is why I try not to leave any detail of a recipe out, and give extra tips where I think they’d be helpful…so that if you follow a recipe posted here, your end product should be pretty close to mine.
- I like food blogs that get right to the point, as you cruise around here you’ll notice that’s my style. I like a little intro about the food or the thought behind a meal, a pic of the final product and the recipe itself with detailed instructions and tips.
- Don’t be afraid to leave feedback, I always like to hear what people think about the recipes I post. Whether you just think it sounds good, or can verify that you tried it and it’s a keeper!
“What is it about good food that stirs the soul? Maybe it’s the way it brings us together. Or that nothing sparks a memory like a favorite dish. Or that the love of eating well is just so universal. Whoever or wherever we are, we all enjoy digging into something delicious.” ~ Oprah
