The Grey Area of Blogging

Is this a grey area? I’m hoping to use this blog as an outlet, posting recipes and the like – AND also as an opportunity to have doors open where I can experience new things. But is there space for someone like me that doesn’t have a specific niche in this crazy food world? I don’t believe in performance for the sake of performing. I do believe in working hard and letting my values guide me. I believe in the power of food. I believe in the power of equitable access to delicious food. Is it possible to be generic – I’ve been watching Greys Anatomy and am likening this dilemma to being a general surgeon (based off of the show – no real life surgeon experience!!). When you’re interested in options and being great at many things, is there space for someone like me in the food world?

Here’s a picture of some bomb ass rice I made the other day. Rice is a supreme comfort food of mine as it reminds me of home, and my moms cooking. ❤️

Finally!

Hey y’all! Welcome to my blog. Here, you’ll find posts about all things food, including home cooked meals, meals from restaurants, eats while traveling, and gardening! You’ll also find some stuff about my personal journey towards healing, equity and liberation musings, and probably (definitely) a meme or two because why not.

Cheers to a dope journey centered on food and love!
