|     || 1) When did you start blogging?|
I started blogging in September of 2010.
2) Why did you choose food to write about?
I have two blogs. At one point, they were one. I realized I had some followers interested in my recipes and others who read about my real estate tips. A very good friend of mine suggested that I split the blog in two: real estate and food. I cut out the recipes from the main blog and published Not Your Ordinary Recipes. I shared recipes on the blog because I used to email my favorite recipe finds to a few friends of mine. A recipe would turn out so amazing that I wanted to share it with everyone. A light bulb went off and I decided to share my reviews with more people. My blog was another way to showcase these great ideas. I took pictures to document my efforts and tried to simplify the directions.
3) Why are you passionate about food?
When I was young, I was a picky eater. I have children and don't want them to be the way I was. It's another way to add culture to their lives. I also have a big family with lots of excellent cooks. Food is a part of me.
4) What are your favorite recipes?
I could eat Mexican everyday. I'm in love with my bean burritos and easy chicken fajitas.
5) What do you love about cooking?
It's like painting. It's soothing unless I forget an ingredient.
6) Who do you love to cook for most?
My family. They are my guinea pigs! When they like something it's the best feeling in the world. Total satisfaction.
7) Do you have any advice for someone who wants to learn how to cook?
Cooking doesn't have to be difficult. When you find something that you like, keep practicing. If you enjoy it others will too.
