  1. Ashley G. says:

    This is my new favorite food blog! Love the design, as well as, the recipes. Very creative and yummy. Thanks!

  2. james says:

    my goodness, you are a great photographer — professional quality. Tell me you are using more than a point and shoot. Your depth of field says SLR and some of your hues look like they may be done in ‘post’. I can’t see tell tale lighting but I don’t see how you can be doing your work without. Now, I just need time to try your recipes!

  3. Julia says:

    I am in love with you! You have such talent!

    1. jaime says:

      You are amazing and brilliant! Prior to stumbling into your “i am a food blog”, I’d go on the internet, look at the pictures of food and analyze them. Like you, I’d say, “I can do this”. Seeing your recipe for paella finally challenged me to prove if I could back up my favorite phrase, “I can do this”. I had to get a paella pan and the right ingredients (saffron,pimiento, etc) and once I did, there was no turning back. Needless to say, I had to do a test run before I prepared one for the party. Like I usually say when I saw your beautiful photo of the paella, “I can do this”, and everyone walked away impressed with my kitchen creation. Thank you.

  4. Mollie says:

    This is such a beautiful blog. I want to eat every picture you take! I’m so glad that I’ve stumbled across you!

  5. Bryant says:

    Wow. I found this blog through your momofukufor2 one and I just gotta say, I am absolutely in love. I’m a designer by trade who loves cooking and has dabbled a little in photography and this blog absolutely blew my mind. The food presentation, typography and pretty much everything are perfectly balanced. You are a goddess. Can’t wait to try your recipes.

  6. afracooking says:

    but as everyone before me has noted, your blog is a beauty to behold – both in design and photography – and the recipe collection is right up my alley. thank you, thank you! i hope you add more recipes soon, but in the meantime, i’m going to poach some eggs…..
    (words i never thought would come out of my mouth… ;-)

  76. Peter says:

    I saw the porchetta on tastespotting.com. I make a pork roast annually on new year’s day for a family get together. This year I decided to do the porchetta. It sure was a lot of work but boy was it worth it. The skin came out like leather – I think I had it in there too long at the end. No matter, the rest was fantastic!! Loved by everyone. I think I am going to try each of your recipes. Please post more!!

  105. SyL says:

    I love your blog very much. I found some of your old recipes are missing, or you will remove old recipes from time to time?

  106. Alfie says:

    Cannot believe that you write or photograph this -no name- blog (picture is ok, but no further personal data), also all the type and so on… looks too profesional. But, if this is so, what is the aim behind it? It´s really a lot of work!

  107. Amy says:


    I’m Amy, and I’m in the process of getting a food blog together. I’ve been trawling through loads of food blogs, and seeing some beautiful ones, but yours really is stunning! I love your use of bacon in cookies. Genius.

    For me, the love of food and cooking isn’t new, but the technology really, really is. I’ve been googling like crazy to find a wordpress plugin that allows me to have something like the layout you use for your recipe gallery page. What’s the name of the one you’re using?

    Also, did you have to change the css code the have your logo where the title would be?

    I’d really appreciate the info! Many thanks!

    Amy, of Rice,Peas&Love x

  108. Fun to find your blog– exquisite photography!

  109. Elette says:

  117. Erika says:

    I just came across your blog a week ago and I love it. My boyfriend and I used your recipe for paella for our New Years Eve dinner. We tweaked it a bit by removing the chicken and chicken stock and using Spanish chorizo, white sea bass and a mix of veggie and fish stock; of course we kept the shrimp and clams. Thank you it was fantastic!!!! Next time I will try it with chicken!!!! I am officially a follower.

  132. Mariana says:

    The look of your blog is what first kept me looking through every recipe in the first place. Like you, I too can’t decide on just one favorite food.

I can’t wait to start cooking… Keep it up! and a big Thanks!

    Hi… Just discovered your blog… HOW COOL YOUR BLOG is…. I am a pizza junkie and found your peas and avocado pizza. I would have never thought to put peas on a pizza… Now it is my favorite and when I cook it for company I get a lot of fun comments.

    Thanks so much

    You are an evil woman! I just found your blog last week and I have already made three of your recipes. (I have actually made the Grilled Cheese Eggs Benny twice! A new family favorite.) You make it so much fun to gain weight!

    PS – I found you through the Finex cast iron page. Finex is one of my favorite things!

    I’m absolutely in love with your blog, recipes and the amazing photos you take! I found it over a year ago and always read your posts, it actually even inspired me to create my own. It’s only a small blog I do in my spare time when I’m not at work but thanks for the inspiration!

    I love your blog, it is absolutely amazing.
    Me and my boyfriend just launched a food blog and would like to ask you how you got so successful.

    Thank you for your time!
    Good luck with all your recipes.

  175. I adore your photography, Steph. Your top view food photos look like they were shot by some angelic eavesdropping entity. I don’t know now you manage it. Do you have some kind of mechanical sky crane that allows you to hover from above?

    Really great blog. Love it to death.

  176. Michelle says:

    I just discovered this blog and absolutely love it! The food blogs I usually see are just remakes of existing recipes and don’t compel me to surf and further, but this is different. Your creative recipes and amazing photography skills are such a great combo!

  177. Marcella says:

    I love your kitchen and your new hair color! I also think it’s bad-ass that you have a neon ‘I am a food blog’ sign. I’m jealous of all the natural light you have in your kitchen. I just bought an a old row house built in 1900. I love the character of the house but it’s super dark. Love you girl – you are super adorable :-).

  178. Asmitha says:

    I love your blog and you are one of my favorite food bloggers, I am student from India and I was really inspired by you and I have started my very own food blog. The photography and the content is amazing. Thank you so much for the inspiration, keep on inspiring people.

  184. Lexan J. says:

    I love your Instagram feed and your blog. Your recipes and photography skills are amazing. Really inspires me to make time for my passion for cooking/eating good food! Have you ever written anything on how you do your food photography? I recently invested in a new camera and am trying to learn more about food styling, props, and lighting. I would love it if you had some kind of tutorial on this!

  199. You don’t know this, but your blog inspired me to start one of my own and keep up with photography! Though, instead of cooking through the Momofuku cookbook, I’m making my way through Easy Gourmet ^-^ Baby steps, you know? It’s the first time I’ve ever bought a cookbook and have drooled over [literally] every single recipe. Thanks for being an inspiration :)

  208. G. Chan says:

    Just stumbled across your blog looking for a pho recipe. I cannot wait to try it.

  209. Jenny says:

    I just tried the NIKU JAGA (JAPANESE BEEF STEW IN THE CROCK POT) recipe in a pressure cooker and it was very tasty! The only thing about using four cups of dashi/broth was that it made the dish a little more soupy than what I’ve tried at restaurants! Anyways, I just discovered your blog and love it! If you can, could you make more dishes using a pressure cooker as it is faster to make after work??

    Thank you! :D

  210. Haiza Qistina says:

    Holy moly! What a blog!!! As someone coming from a many-year career in the TV commercial and feature film industry, I love your sense of design, the directness of your instructions, and the taste of your concoctions! This newly-acquired Canadian fan will certainly be spreading the word to family and friends. BRAVO!
