Hi Suzie! I have been cooking for many years…due to health issues and all additives in foods I am trying to go back to the old ways..of making everything from scratch and purchasing food in it’s simplest form…love your blogs (all of them) Canning fruit and veges this week…and into the weekend..just keep up the good work you do…and please relax life is too short not to have some great fun…Blessings…Pam
Yay Suzie! Those cutters are lovely! Imagine how cute the cookies will look:) I am reading Will Storr:) Love it!
I’m the kind of foodie that can’t stop talking about food and recipes. It seems like every conversation I have turns to food and recipes – I carry a notebook with me to write them down now! 🙂 I just got some great new ones to try from my daughter’s piano teacher. firstname.lastname@example.org
Who wouldn’t love to win some cookie cutters!? Honestly, I have never seen your blog until now, and came here via someone retweeting your contest. I could definitely get interested in reading a food blog though! I’m always interested in new recipes. I try very hard to cook as much as possible and stay away from the bad stuff. (Cheeseburgers are my weakness though.) I love to bake…have gotten more and more into gardening the past three years…and have a lot to learn. That’s the kind of foodie I am. 😉 I look forward to seeing what you post on your blog here. ~Miriam
Hey Suzie! I come to your blog 1- because I really missed reading about how you were doing when you went away and 2- it’s inspiring! Your foodie adventures have helped me try a few new things, and I’ve learned about foods that I’ve never used before.
Unfortunately I’m forced to just watch what you’re cooking, even though a cooking/baking club would be awesome. I don’t get much of a choice in what I cook while I’m here at NECI. (I could use the dorm kitchen, but I don’t have the money to spend on the ingredients to make all the yummy foods I want to make.)
Big fam – lots o’ kids involved, all learned or are learning to cook and bake early on – little $$$ – we have a garden though this year hail was devastating – yes, we DO keep bees – grow blackberries and rasp. – trying to eat mostly local – kind of experimental – every Sunday we have “Tradition”, a meal-centered gathering – I worked at a natural foods bakery in Chicago the year I was pregnant with my oldest, who just turned 36 – wondering what happened to another set of cookie cutters I had? Lent them out, but to whom?!
Thank you for asking the question, I’ve never thought about what kind of foodie I am.
I think I’m an emotional foodie. Cooking has associations for me. Like the smell of roasting coffee from when I was a toddler and mum used to push me in my pram (yes, we had prams in those days, not buggies!) past the only Italian coffee shop for miles. And I still have a tablespoon, all buckled at the edge, from which I used to lick raw cake mixture on mum’s baking days.
I think at it’s best, cooking is a sacred art.
And as to what I’d like to see on this site? Perhaps a little more vegan stuff. I’m not vegan – not even vegetarian – but I’m trying to cut down a bit on meat and dairy and finding many vegan recipes a bit boring!
Hi Suzie – I am always looking for new ideas to make meals interesting. I have taught myself how to cook over the years and am pretty good at it, but know I can always improve. 🙂
I am the kind of foodie who will try anything twice! I love cooking, baking and growing most of my own food. I think it is important to cook from scratch, then you know exactly what you are eating! This is a great give a way! I adore cookie cutters! they are so much fun and have lots of uses besides cookies!!
I love your blog, you are inspiring me to try new things, I love to cook things in as natural a way as possible and from scratch, I love the pix you post and its like opening a new cookbook and finding new things to try each time. I read cookbooks like novels, but I actually USE your recipes!
It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. 🙂 (currently munching on the last of the apple chips) Desba
I had to laugh at this Suzie!
I have 3
giant stock pots FULL
of cookie cutters.
I have cowboy boots, tractors, hearts pumpkins, barefeet,and owls. I could go on and on.
I adore cookies! so i am looking forward to your cookie recipes!( to go with those cutters of course!)
Hi Suzie – I’m a beginner foodie, I think…while I’ve always loved to eat (hence the new diet project!)….I’m learning to look at food differently. I want to learn about natural / organic / simple / delicious food & recipes. Thanks for your time – you make it all look so good!
I just like reading about what other people have been cooking. I’ve been away for a couple of months, but would definitely be interested in some sort of club, probably baking rather than cooking.
But really I just like hearing about what’s going on in your kitchen and your life!
these cookie cutters are so cool.
I am a beginner baker and a frusterated one at that. My goal is to have one great cookie and one great cupcake recipe under my belt this winter.
Thanks for the chance to win these.
My kids are in their 30s, & I’ve been a ‘healthy from scratch’ kind of foodie for that many years. Have a garden usually, & now a CSA membership – & love coconut anything 🙂
We (dau & her fam & I) went gluten free recently, & I tend to cook very little meat, tho I eat some (free range if possible) . . .
The cookie cutters are cute – I just made some heavenly GF scones . . .
That’s so cute. I’ve been cooking and baking since I was about 7 yrs. It’s my passion. Love collecting recipes, cookbooks, mags etc. Would love to see what you cook and bake that is seasonal. Love your blog.
I have always loved to cook and bake and unfortunately, eat. Cooking for me is a way to release stress, nothing like pounding on some bread dough to get relief.
The cutters are super cute! Come visit me over at my little blog sometime.
Moroccan Wife says
Hey Suzie! Great idea for the contest.
I’m more of an ethnic foodie, I guess. I love cooking mostly Mediterranean & North African food. My husband is Moroccan, so I do a lot of Moroccan home cooking and I have lots of Turkish friends who’ve been teaching me about their cuisine. I also love love love to bake, so I make lots of cookies, cakes, scones, etc.
I will be starting a new project of making home made dog biscuits (for which I also use cookie cutters) and I will be selling them at my spa to my clients for their dogs. I also plan to experiment w/ making “bath cakes” for divine essential oil/sea salt baths. But alas, you can’t eat those, so I will also be cooking for the humans!
*Everyone* and I mean *everyone* in my family cooks. I used to watch my grandmother & mother cook and now I live in my grandparents home so I cook in her kitchen (her name was Nora, I’m Noura)
And yes, I wear aprons… love them!
You can find me @ http://www.moroccanwife.blogspot.com although I’ve been a little slack in recent posts. I need to do some catch up posting!
