Project Food Blog Entry #1:

There is a ridiculous number of talented food bloggers out there, so it begs the question: why me?

Quite simply? Because food is me. There is nothing I love more than cooking a legendary meal and sharing it with the people I love. Nothing more in the world.

Food is never far from my mind and was part of the reason I decided to start a blog in the first place. I wanted to share my love of food and nutrition with the world. My background in Nutrition allowed me to learn about how food affects our bodies, but my passion for food has allowed me to learn about how food affects our souls.

The kitchen is where I love to spend my time and you can often find me there – usually in sweatpants armed with a glass of wine. Oh, and a camera, an obvious necessity for a food blogger!

I strive to feature food and recipes that are simple, healthy and delicious on And remember, eating healthy doesn’t mean eating perfectly.

Voting starts next week – check out my profile!

    Truffled popcorn, hot dogs, ethnic foods, glycemic load, cocktail party ideas – where else can you find this variety of info about food?

    Hi Emily, you have my vote! I really like your site, particularly all of your restaurant reviews. Being from Chicago, I’m a HUUUGE Karyn’s fan (here’s my review of her other spot, “Karyn’s Cooked” ) I’m heading up to the Twin Cities in a couple of weeks with some friends — any must-try restaurants you recommend? Your Sanctuary review looks pretty tempting…
