It’s that time of year again! Aka the time of year when I gush about all of the fantastic books I read throughout the year. And oh boy howdy, were there a lot in 2021.Read More
*taps mic* Is this thing on?
Hi! It has certainly been a minute, hasn’t it? In fact, my last post here on Fooduzzi, until I went completely and totally dark, was posted on December 18, the six year birthday of this blog.
Since then, Fooduzzi has sat dormant. No new recipes, no posts on social, no Taste Test Tuesdays on Instagram –– nada.
And… I owe you a bit of an explanation! With the exception of a little note in my Instagram bio saying that I was on a break, I kind of just dropped off the face of the internet.
Nothing gossipy or scandalous happened –– I just needed a break. A big one. So I took it.
It really was that simple.
But I know you might have some questions, so I figured I’d give you a bit of a recap of the why behind the break, what I was doing instead, and what you can expect from me, and from Fooduzzi, moving forward:Read More
2020 will go down as the year of many things, but one of the most important things to me is that it was the year that I fell back in love with reading.Read More
You know, I believe that one of the most important things I can do with this platform (this blog, my social channels, my voice) is help support local businesses.
This year has been tough (understatement of the year right there), and the holidays are a great time to support the small, local businesses you love.
There are a ton of Pittsburgh, PA-based businesses that this yinzer is excited to support this year, so I wanted to put together a quick little gift guide outlining some of my very favorites.Read More
Hi, friends! It’s time for another cookbook review!
This is my very favorite semi-recurring series on the blog. I have a lot of cookbooks. But I don’t always remember to cook from said cookbooks.
Plus, it’s easy to get into a dinner rut. You know how it goes. Long week, busy day at work, need to get dinner on the table asap –– you resort back to a few of your old standbys.
But with this series, I’m trying to break out of my dinner shell (and inspire you to do the same along the way).Read More
Woahhhh woah woah. It’s a life update!
It has been a minute since I’ve written one of these, and man. Lots of thoughts! Like nearly 2000 words worth of thoughts.
I hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. We’ve been at home a lot, but we have ventured out to have some socially-distant visits with family.
That said, life has been pretty good recently, and I wanted to give you guys an update based on some of the things we’ve been doing/loving/etc.
Some of the links included below are affiliate links, which means that if you make a purchase using one of those links, Fooduzzi will get a small commission. I only recommend products I know and love and use and think you guys will love, but if you’d rather not use an affiliate link, you can just Google the thing I’m talking about! Easy peasy.
Alrighty…let’s dive into this update!Read More
So, what’s up?
We all know what’s up. And what’s up is a whole lot of weirdness, uncertainty, and staying indoors.
Since grocery stores are a bit of a madhouse right now and we’re all limiting our time spent there, I figured I’d show you what I ate in a day. Specifically this past Sunday!
My goal with this post is two-fold:
1. Entertainment. I not-so-secretly love reading “What I Ate in a Day” posts/watching “What I Ate” videos. Why? They’re entertaining and interesting!
2. Inspo. My meals are very much based in the staples we have on-hand. Oats, rice, beans, tofu, etc. Hopefully this post can help you get a little creative with your pantry this week!
Let’s do this.Read More
Welcome welcome to Fooduzzi’s “A Week of Meals from” series! This is the second post in the series (check out the first one here!), and I’m v excited you’re here!
This little series is one of my favorite things, even though I’ve only done it twice.
And that’s because it came out of a need. A need to dust off the bajillion cookbooks I currently have strewn about my room. A need to get out of our dinner rut. A need to actually cook the recipes I find in cookbooks.
In this “A Week of Meals from” series, I find a cookbook, I cook a few different recipes from it throughout the week, and then I review it here! On Fooduzzi!
Today’s review: Love Real Food from the vegetarian queen herself, Kathryne Taylor from the wonderful blog, Cookie + Kate.Read More
