My 2 year “Instaversary”: Recipes from some of my favourite bloggers

I’ve been absent for a while – we’ve been on a lovely family holiday to the Sunshine Coast in QLD. I’ll probably write more on that soon, as there were some excellent kid-friendly eateries I’d like to recommend! Also, I haven’t stopped my Simplicious Challenge, but decided I would combine my May and June months into a single post, due to the holiday and finishing up a uni course prior to that. That post will be coming next weekend. 🙂

In the meantime though, I’d like to share some new recipes that I’ve tried recently, from other bloggers. A little over two years ago – not very long after starting this blog – I apprehensively joined Instagram so I could participate in the online community for my first ever I Quit Sugar 8 Week Program. I had no idea how to use it and found it overwhelming at first (now I feel that way about Snapchat! Which I have still not joined…). My first photo was a pork knuckle with sauerkraut, which I nervously posted to no one. To be honest, I initially found taking and sharing photos a scarier prospect than writing here on this public blog – perhaps because it’s a different type of creativity. But over the last two years I’ve found it to be an enjoyable and supportive experience, and one that seems friendlier than Facebook in many ways.

To mark the occasion, I wanted to say a little thank-you to some of the bloggers that I’ve met along the way (some in real life), who contributed to or were part of my family’s experience to better health; by trying and sharing their recipes. Obviously, a huge influence has been the team at I Quit Sugar – but I write about them all the time, so that’s a given. 😉 Continue reading

Want to know where to eat in Canberra? Follow the food bloggers: Eat Drink Blog 2015

I nearly didn’t register to attend Eat Drink Blog 2015. Luckily, I listened to my husband when he encouraged me to go. More specifically, as I described the program to him, he glared at me dubiously and said, “Are you MAD? Why wouldn’t you go!? I want to go in your place!”

Indeed, I would be kicking myself now if I’d given in to my introverted tendencies and stayed at home. Eat Drink Blog (EDB) is a national conference for food bloggers, held in a different Australian location each year. This year, it was held in my home-town, Canberra, and presented a perfect opportunity to meet over 70 local and interstate bloggers who share the same interest – food – but who each bring to it their own unique perspective.
