Hey y’all! Now you know I love food, like I looooove food, and I’m not ashamed to say I’m a foodie with a capital F!
Being a foodie I know plenty of foodies, and I follow many wonderful food blogs.
So I thought, why not share some of my favorite foodies and food bloggers with you. Makes perfect sense, right?!
Starting today, monthly, I will be sharing Miss Foodie Fab’s Featured Foodie.
My first Featured Foodie is Candace of Food(love)Tog.
Candace’s blog, Food(love)Tog is a blog that combines good food, photography, and a little bit of food for your soul.
Grab a seat, check out my interview with Candace, and discover her love of the holy meat also known as bacon.
What makes you a foodie?
Not sure what the requirements are, but I love food. I love to cook it. I love to eat it. I love to photograph it. I love reading about it. I just love everything about food. From the picking of veggies to the seasoning of a cast iron skillet.
Oh, and I believe bacon is in a food group of its on, so yeah I’m qualified.
Describe your food philosophy in 5 words.
6 words needed, please. It’s more of my life philosophy really: Love God. Love People. Eat Good!
Who are your food icons/inspirations for your cooking, and why?
My grandmother and mom.
My grandmother and mom both make such great food, and amazing dishes. Growing up in their kitchens gave me such a wealth of knowledge. I literally learned how to cook watching them, it was very hands on and I’m so thankful for those moments.
I also really like to cook for my mom and grandmother, and I love the look on my mom’s face when she’s eating something I made for her.
If you had to eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be and why?
It would probably be breakfast: eggs (scrambled with cheese), pancakes, (plain no syrup), and bacon. Lots of bacon.
I love breakfast food. It’s perfect, anytime. And well, anything that includes bacon is good with me. I love bacon.
Where are you favorite places to dine?
I love the local spots where I live in Indiana.
The Jazz Kitchen, Zest, Three Sisters Cafe, Cafe Patachou, and Northside are spots I have faves at. However, Broad Ripple Village is my favorite place to dine in the city of Indiana. It has an eclectic mix of good, yummy, and wholesome eats.
What’s currently in your kitchen that you can’t live without, and why?
My hand blender. Whoosh! Love everything about it. It has a whisk attachment that just makes my whipped (mashed) potatoes come to life!
How do you stay healthy and continue to eat good?
I eat good food. The healthy part comes with moderation. I can’t eat fried chicken every day, and I don’t!
I’m also a firm believer in eating breakfast. I need it, my brain doesn’t function well without it.
What’s your favorite recipe?
Flaky Biscuits. I love making bread, and a warm hot biscuit with butter, just does it for me.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt (1/2 tsp)
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- ⅓ cup shortening (3/4 stk butter)
- 1 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Gradually stir in milk until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
- Turn out onto a floured surface.
- Pat or roll dough out to 1 inch thick, fold, pat again (I flatten and pat twice). Cut biscuits with a large cutter or juice glass dipped in flour. Repeat until all dough is used. Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits onto an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake for 13 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges begin to brown.
- Top with butter or honey.
Thank you Candace for sharing your recipe, and for the interview. Keep up the wonderful work with your blog!
XOXO, Miss Foodie Fab!
