When you lose everything, everything of course, changes. You can not help but go through some kind of metamorphosis and reevaluate everything in life. I have spent a lot of time thinking about the food blogging world and you know what I discovered? So much of it feels artificial to me. All the recipes are perfect. All the photos are perfect. Everybody’s lives are perfect. Not only can I not relate on any level whatsoever, I find myself completely bored. The two things I can not stand in life are inauthenticity and boredom.
I know I am completely off trend in my thinking but just using that term “off trend” makes me want to hit somebody. I did not start my food blog to become famous. It has always been a place of healing. (More on that theme to come soon.) It helps cheer me up, it helps give me something to write about and share with my foodie friends (you!!!). Most of all? It is supposed to be fun.
Blue Grilled Steak Doritos
My sister Shannon brought over these Blue Grill Steak Doritos a couple of weeks ago and I was so excited! Excite to have a product to review and that the food was blue!
I realized later it was supposed to be like eating dinosaur meat (I was not psychologically ready for that one) and I devoured every chip. They were fantastic! But only if you are not a vegetarian. These chips seriously tastes like dry rubbed BBQ meat. Not saucy, dry rubbed with lots of flavour and smokey!
And I saw them at my market just the other day so they may be available all summer which rocks.
I give them four and a half out of five wooden spoons. They completely delivered on the flavour promised and… they are blue!
Again Shannon, being the foodie fairy, brought over treats one day and they were Creamsicles! Not just any Creamsicles either, they also included raspberry and blueberry!
Look at that artificial colour gleam! So how did it taste?
Totally like fake blueberries. Artificial all the way and I was in foodie bliss.
I can not help it. Having something this forbidden in the world on artificial-free everything, this brought out the kid in me. I know the world is going 100% natural this and that which is awesome but on a hot summer day it is fun to bring out the controversial treats and just dig in.
I give this product four out of five wooden spoons.
I have loved blue food my whole life. It started off with blueberries in milk at a very young age. Blueberry is my favourite flavour of all time and I got obsessed with blue food when I watched Luke pour blue milk into his glass on Tatooine with his aunt and uncle. I thought it was the coolest thing in the world.
When the world has fallen to crumbs around you, you take bliss where you can find it. I have a feeling more foodie heresy is in my near future. I hope you stay tuned for more culinary debauchery.

Culinary debauchery? YAY! I had BBQ hot dogs last week. I think that definitely counts.

Love that you are excited about my rebellious foodie ways Debra! Yes, bring on the hot dogs and glutenous non-vegan mac and cheese. If it makes me the most unpopular foodie in the world, so be it.
