Welcome to my blog! I’m Hollie. I’m just your average foodie and an avid reader who decided to bring some creativity into my everyday life. This blog is my creative outlet to use skills learned from years of experience as a photographer, IT professional & eBook designer, and mostly, my passion for cooking!
I hope you find inspiration from my recipes, lovely photos, & bookish posts!
Nowadays I leave my enormous collection of photography equipment stored away and capture all my food photographs with my cell phone (and sometimes a selfie light.) It can be challenging when there is no “good” natural light, but I think I do okay!

Use the “category cloud” in the sidebar (or bottom of the page on a small device) or the Search for Recipes & Blog Posts page to explore more of my posts.
Food blogging can be so much fun, but it’s also a lot of work. I promise to try and post a new recipe each week, but like many bloggers, I work a full-time day job. I can probably speak for all food bloggers when I say, we love your input! Without comments and ratings from readers like you, it can be pretty lonely out here on the web, so I hope to hear from you! To familiarize you with my blog, I’ll always list my most recent posts on this home page along with links too all the categories of recipes and posts!
Popups, Ads, Affiliate Links and Privacy
Running a blog can be expensive. That’s why we use ads, like the Amazon ad above. Ads that you see or click on can help generate revenue to help bloggers recoup the cost of our websites, templates, plugins like what we use to generate recipes, nutritional values, and other fun widgets and content. We also use affiliate links. I use links to products on Amazon where I am an Amazon Affiliate. I only use affiliate links within the text in my posts, to products, books and authors, or websites that I personally enjoy. That’s right, this blog isn’t just for me to show off pretty food pics, it’s also for you to find recipes, or learn about how to use up those leftovers, or discover new authors! Besides affiliate links in the text of my posts, you can also find a lot of my favorite things and services on my “Shop eBookFoodie” page. When you use an affiliate link and actually purchase an item from Amazon, bloggers receive a small commission at absolutely no charge to you. So, support your favorite food bloggers by stopping by their blog and clicking on a link to Amazon before shopping! When you visit blogs and you see all the pop-up ads, everywhere, like in between every paragraph, I agree it’s pretty annoying. I’ll generally leave the site immediately. That’s why I promise to use as few ads as I can. You’ll usually see one at the top , maybe one in the middle and at the bottom of each page, and maybe some in the sidebar or footers. My Privacy page is also linked in my top menu to learn about how your personal information may be used.
I am not a nutritionist, doctor, or chef. My opinions are mine and mine alone. You may find errors in my writing, nutritional values or recipes, or a broken link. I may have links to blogs on WordPress that I read that you may or may not like. This blog is meant to be a safe and fun space. I do my absolute best to provide quality content that I think you will enjoy. While I try and keep my topics light and fun I am passionate about many topics, but I will try and post trigger warnings where appropriate. I’m learning more each day about blogging, so please, feel free to contact me with any concerns you may have.
