What do you do for a living?
I’m a recipe developer, food photographer and social media marketer in the food industry. Previously I’ve worked as a line cook and pastry chef. This was a career change for me. I spent 10 years working in IT before attending school.
Why are some of your recipes measure by weight instead of volume?
When baking, it’s important to measure by weight as often as possible for consistent results. It’s not as much of an issue with cooking, when you’re adjusting ingredients to taste. But a cup of flour will vary in weight depending on the brand and how densely it’s packed. I highly recommend investing in a digital scale. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy.
I’m a new blogger. Do you have any advice?
- Post frequently.
- Learn to take good photos.
- Make your site easy to navigate.
- Be passionate. Write about things you personally find interesting and exciting.
I see you have an Amazon Store. Are you profiting from it?
When you buy a product from Amazon through my store, I get a very small percentage. This barely helps me cover the cost of ingredients, but it’s something. If you see something you like, I would truly appreciate you buying it through me. To be clear, I will never ever list an item that I don’t personally own and recommend. The only exception to this rule is the camera listed under ‘Photography.’ I currently use a Nikon D70 and I’ve listed Nikon’s D7000, the upgraded model I hope to own someday. The Nikon D70 is an older model and you will only be able to find it used.
