So this is me…
simple |ˈsimpəl|adjective: easily understood; presenting no difficulty : uncomplicated in form, nature, or design; without much decoration or ornamentation.
….That, ladies & gentlemen, pretty much describes ME!
Blogging about food has been something that I’ve wanted to do for a while but it seems like something always interfered with me “getting the show on the road”. I didn’t have the time. BUT I’ve put down my foot and finally did it! And yes, I’ll be the first to admit that I’m
somewhat very late on the blogging bandwagon but like the old people in the West Indies often said where and while I was growing up “Better late than never”. *sees that “Really Now?” look on one reader’s face* Finnneeeeeee, I know people all over the world say that but I just wanted to find a way to put it out there that I’m from the Caribbean. WoooHooo. I was born and raised on the most beautiful Caribbean island (can you guess which one?) and then I migrated to the USA to pursue my studies.
I decided to start blogging mainly because I wanted to share my love stories about food with anyone who would
listen read. I love everything about food and it’s seriously surprising that I’m not a trillion pounds. Although, I’m on a diet every other day. But I digress….
Food is my passion. I love to cook, I love to bake, I love to assemble and most of all I love to EAT. I’d say I love to entertain but I haven’t done much of that…..ever. The list of reasons for that, too, is another long one so I’ll just spare you the heartache.
Being that one of the hindrances to my entertaining is that I just moved from New York to a secret location somewhere near Mars and I know not one soul here, I definitely can’t bring the world to my home (food), so I’ve opted for bringing my home (food) to the world. You’ll be sure to find tons of restaurant reviews and posts about my own culinary conquests, achievements and even failures on http://www.IamSimplyTia.com.
Please understand that my site is a work in progress and may not be in the circles of the fancy-schmancy food blogs out there (which is where I aspire to get one day). I do not have an all-that-great camera and I have not, as yet, mastered the art of food photography (lighting, angles, food styling etc)…so bear with the images I present. Hopefully my words will be enough to captivate you! *grins*
Note Well: Most of the dishes you see here are recipes I’ve acquired from around the web (mostly, other bloggers). If I use someone’s recipe, I WILL credit them and include a link to the original recipe. Sometimes though, I concoct my own creations. With these concoctions, I may have gotten inspiration from other places but not often do I list out the 12 recipes I reviewed to come up with my own recipe that I like and want to share. Also my blog isn’t about just one type of cuisine. All of what I share is what we eat for either breakfast, lunch, dinner or dessert – so you won’t just find Caribbean dishes here. It’s an eclectic mix of all types of food.
So with all that being said, I sincerely want to thank you for taking the time to visit my little corner and I really hope you come by again……soon! And if/when you leave me a comment and I don’t respond, please forgive me, it’s not that I’m ignoring you. It’s just that sometimes your lovely comments leave me speechless!
Bye For Now…..
