Searching out fabulous food sites for these Friday Foodie is way up there with the good stuff. The things these creative, charming and engaging bloggers manage to do are not only inspiring, they’re a great reminder of the things wonderful people are capable of. Spend too much time listening to the news and it’s easy to think the world out there isn’t so good. The people, not so great. But a couple of hours researching online, and I’m restored to loving my fellow human beings. And as for you fellow campers, well I love you lot the most. The way I see it, only happy, optimistic people go camping. And what’s not to like about that, hey?!
Anyway, today I have a real treat for you. Created by Californian-based Giao Trac, Kiss My Spatula is where this talented photographer and cook gets to express her love of the world. And the food she finds and makes in it! She loves a food market, and simple, healthy food that reflects her Vietnamese background but that also brings in food that is mindful of her husband’s Irish upbringing.
Her avid followers love her homemade pantry where you can learn to make yummy things like goat’s cheese, cherry garcia ice cream and Irish brown bread. But I love the photographs of her travels and her light touch with food. Trac has an easy way of making even the simplest of dishes truly delicious. I bet you’ll agree!
Enjoy you lovely campers, you…
