Appetizer Fanatic

Trying new things makes an ordinary day more exciting, don't you think? I have a lot of fun trying unordinary recipes and using new ingredients out of curiosity. I'm also resourceful and creative with what I have. Before food blogging, I enjoyed thirteen years in the coffee industry. The comfort of spending time with friends and family over coffee and fresh baked goodies stuck with me so I started to cook and bake a little differently. It wasn't just about the food itself anymore, although I've enjoyed some very memorable recipes. Feel free to connect with me and introduce yourself! I'd love to hear about your favorite food memory.
