Why did you create eatdrinkginger.com?
I love to cook and wanted an outlet to share my own personal recipes with people along with my love for music.
What are some challenges you have faced so far?
Using WordPress and the format of creating a blog was all completely foreign to me so setting up Eat Drink Ginger was a challenge. I am still learning so much but once the initial blog was set up the rest hasn’t been nearly as daunting.
What are some successes you have faced so far?
Getting feedback from people who have made my recipes and loved them has been so awesome!!
Hmmmm. The Sundried tomato & thyme spread with toasted pine nuts and cranberries is the most creative recipe that I have come up with all on my own so I am proud of it. The Caprese appetizer is also a huge crowd pleaser whenever I make it.
The Garden Capresé Salad with Pita Chips and Simple, Decadent, Deep-Dark Chocolate Pudding. are both easy and delicious. Also, the Peanut Butter Mousse is stupidly easy and tasty.
Secondly, I share three songs in every post from different music genres. I love music and hope others who do so as well can find some new tunes to enjoy while on my blog. I plan to ocassionally create music posts and talk about the songs in my recipes. Those posts will be bonus posts, in addition to my weekly food related ones.
How did you come up with the name, Eat Drink Ginger?
That was really challenging. I knew it should be about food and wanted to incorporate something about myself. I am a redhead so that was an easy one to use. The first ideas I loved, I ran by my husband and he said they sounded like porn sites: Tasty ginger or the delicious ginger, OMG HE WAS RIGHT! So I then tried thinking of food-related sayings that were catchy. Eventually, I found Eat Drink Ginger and was thrilled it was available. It is perfect! I added a tagline “Eat, drink, dance, repeat” as soon as I decided I had to include my love of music on the blog.
