About Foodinary

Hi!  I’m Beth and Welcome to Foodinary!

My excitement for food has been a recent addition to my life story.  I had always enjoyed baking with my mom growing up, but it wasn’t until 2011 that cooking became such a big part of my everyday life.

I journeyed to Tully Cross, Ireland in January of 2011 for a 4-month experience abroad with 20 or so others from my college in Grand Rapids, MI.  It was there in our tiny town in the Irish countryside that I developed a passion for food.  Every spare moment was spent dreaming up recipes or better yet, making them for my cottagemates.  I started photographing these creations and journaling my thoughts and reactions to each one.

It was after I returned home that I discovered “food blogging” was an actual thing people did…Obviously, I was sold!

With very little knowledge of the technical aspects of blogging, I recruited some help in setting up the blog.  So without much experience in blogging or photography- Foodinary was born in September of 2011.

Here you will find my thoughts, recipes, restaurant reviews, and more.  All of my cooking is done in my apartment’s tiny galley kitchen.  To make something delicious, you just need some good-quality ingredients and a little imagination- Not expensive gadgets or fancy stand-mixers!

I’m a simple girl with a big passion for food, and I am so excited to share my adventure with you!
