A Three Blog Tour

One of my favorite things about blogging is meeting other bloggers from around the country and even the world. I drool over gorgeous food creations and get to know what is going on their real life. So when Ramona of Curry and Comfort asked if I wanted to join a Blog Tour Post, of course I said yes.  I first was introduced to Ramona's blog from Foodbuzz.  She is originally from Sri Lanka. She post some traditional Sri Lankan dishes, lots of curries and the cutest, creative desserts.  She likes food hot and spicy and I love being taught about new spices from her. 

In hindsight I probably should have said no since I am about 2 weeks tardy in my post. But better late than never and I have so really good blogs to share with you today.  

First up, a little more about me....

1. What am I working on currently on the blog?
Well, to be honest not much. I used to post 5 days a week but know I am lucky if I get three posts up. I took a break from blogging this summer and I just haven't gotten back in the swing of things between work and house projects. I am hoping to enjoy all of the goodies of Fall soon. I see lots of apples and pumpkin in my future. 

2. How does my work differ than others of its genre? 
My blog is not just a food blog but a life blog.  What I post about is my real world. I travel for work so the blog is a way to journal about new places and restaurants I find on the road.  I also write about the cooking adventures my husband and I have in the kitchen. We both love to cook but go about the process in very different ways. It makes for some very good meals and some interesting kitchen messes along the way. 

3. Why do I write what I do? 
My work can be all consuming at times during the year, especially when I am traveling a lot. The blog is a way for me to see other aspects of my life and what I enjoy.  Plus I know our family's like to keep up to day through the blog.

4. How does my writing process work?
There is nothing special about my writing process. In fact, I should probably be a bit more organized in my methods.  I write what is going on in my life currently so there is limited scheduled/planned posts.  I use early mornings and lunch time to get most of my posts complete. Evenings are spent visiting other blogs.

And now for sharing three of my favorite blogs...

Kayle is an actress currently living in Ohio but she used to live in NYC. I, therefore, thought we were neighbors. I am crazy about all things famous and since she has been on TV she is certainly famous in my book. She must be the coolest actress ever too because she eats real food. Cookies galore!! If you need a chocolate chip recipe this where you should go looking, not to mention her scrumptious uses for peanut butter and brown butter.  Right now she is planning her wedding. I love reading about the adventures and seeing things come into place. 

Meet Erin of The Spiffy Cookie

I am actually not 100% sure where I first stumbled upon Erin's blog but I am sure glad I did and I have been a follower ever since.  Erin is part of Pass the Cook Book Club and the Secret Recipe Club each month.  Her blog though is so much more.  First off she is a smarty with a PhD in Microbiology. I have the most respect for those who accomplish this in life.  Such a big deal and in Microbiology no less.  

Erin's food is a hodge podge of dinners, snacks and desserts, all of which are delicious.  She has made some amazing single serving recipes and one of her most recent desserts I am still trying to wrap my head around....Mini Reese's Oreo Cheesecake.

Meet Zainab from Blahnik Baker
Zainab is also another smarty pants who is currently a neuroscience PhD student. My connection with Z is that her husband is also Mr. J and they have almost the exact same birthdays. I think it was fate we were to get to know each other. Her blog hasn't been around for too long and yet she has quite a following. She can make some of the most ridiculously decadent cakes. I want them all. 

Well, I hope you enjoyed the tour. Please go check out some of these fantastic blogs; I know you will find something yummy.
