Hi! I’m Maisie, and welcome to Sweeter with Honey!
I live in Austin, TX with my husband, Ryan, and 2 dogs. I’m a runner, dog-lover, search-engine-marketer by day, and kitchen-experimenter. We’re also soon-to-be parents for the first time!
I started reading and cooking from a variety of food blogs about 4 years ago, and it truly changed the way I eat and think about food. I used to eat a lot of packaged, processed food without a real understanding of what any basic recipes were made of. Fast forward to today and I love being in the kitchen experimenting with different plant-based, vegetarian recipe ideas. I’ve even got my meat-eating husband happily eating vegetarian most days of the week!
My Food Blog Experiment
I have challenged myself to post at least one new recipe per week for a year. I’m already realizing how much there is to learn about recipe development, food photography, website upkeep, etc, and I look forward to seeing what sort of progress I can make along the way.
Why Am I Doing This?
There are thousands of food blogs out there so why add Sweeter with Honey into the mix?
- Improve my skills in the kitchen and learn more about food in general. I’ve learned that creating a recipe requires really understanding each component and what it contributes to a dish. Also, sharing a recipe on the big scary internet will force me to work on a recipe until I’m truly happy with it.
- If things go really well, have the beginnings of a successful food blog in which I can share and get feedback on my recipes from readers
- End up with at least 52 of my favorite recipes nicely organized, and have spent a year working on a hobby I love
- It’s better than the Excel sheet I was using to keep track of all my favorite recipes
