Transitioning to a “Food” blogger is definitely difficult. However, I’ve always loved food. Food is the biggest determinants of my day. And sometimes my definition of good food can be the cheesiest, messiest nachos at my local sports bar. That being said, I have my likes and my dislikes and that might not always fit the mold of a true “foodie.”
Here’s why I’m not a Real Foodie
1.My idea for a snack at home is usually croutons or bell peppers.
2. You’ll always find a frozen pizza in my freezer.
3. I hate all types of mushrooms. Sorry, Stroganoff, you’ll never have a chance with me.
4. If I can’t find the right ingredient to a recipe, I’ll find a substitution. Even though feta cheese doesn’t make a true elote.
5. Sometimes, I’ll wing it and try a restaurant without even looking on Yelp or food blogs.
6. I don’t savor every flavor. Sometimes, I just demolish an entire plate of chips and salsa without picking apart every flavor in the salsa.
7. I have my “go-to” recipes that I can always make well, otherwise, I’m not very innovative in the kitchen.
8. I’m not a know-it-all about foods. I love to learn and ask questions from serves and chefs, and even my boyfriend who knows a lot more about food than I do. Even if I do know more than someone dining with me about food, I’ll never look down upon them or arrogantly tell them off.
9. If I can find a restaurant in that serves good food at reasonable prices, without much of an ambiance, I’ll still frequent that more than the trendy joint that serves similar food for 2x as much.
10. Last but not least, I’m not a luxury-food snob. I enjoy food equally. I’ll spend $14 on a bowl of mac & cheese while still loving my Kraft dinner at home.
Are you a foodie or just a food lover, like me?
