I started this blog because when I get passionate about something, I also like to share information about – in a way, teach the people around me about this passion so in turn they might start to love it too. Food was a funny thing though. I became a fan of baking because at first it was so extraordinarily simple (I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve used plenty a box mix back in the day) and it made people so happy. Sometimes it’s just a great thing to bake for the people around you, to share this creation, and to make their days slightly (or a whole lot!) better.
So, my main purpose (if this was a corporate website – which it is most certainly not – this would be filed under the “Mission Statement” section) is to allow all of you to partake in my love of food. I’ll rant. I’ll ramble. I’ll abuse parentheses (if you can’t tell, I do already). I’ll post a billion and one pictures. I’ll criticize all my pictures. I’ll post what I want to try, what I do try, and the outcomes. I personally elevate taste over appearance (shouldn’t all cooks?). Something I post may not look picture-perfect, but at least it’ll taste delicious, and that’s all that matters.
Tech-y things: I shoot with a Canon Rebel T3i. I primarily use my Canon 100mm f/2.8 macro lens for food photography, but on occasion I might use my Canon 18-55mm zoom lens as well.
Also, I’ll let you try to guess where the name of this blog – “callmefoodie” – came from. (hint: hey I just met you, and this is crazy! )
Thanks to Elysia for designing my logo (CMF for Call Me Foodie!) and creating my header!
