foodie (noun informal) – a person with a particular interest in food, a gourmet
I’m Nicole; devoted foodie, proud mother and a real stickler for grammar and the correct use of the English language.
I love writing and have a passion for all things delicious. I started Miss Friday’s Feast in August 2012 as a place to share my passion for good food. Little did I know there was a thriving blogging community out there waiting, but boy am I glad there is. I have met some wonderful people who are just as enthusiastic about sharing their recipes and ideas.
So a little about me, I’m 27 and would describe myself as ambitious and down to earth (if it’s possible to be both of those things at once). My interests include cooking, music, reading, running, writing, interior design and meeting the girls down the pub.
I’m a little undecided on my long term career goals, but for now I’m more than happy. I work in a bid management role for a facilities company and love every minute of it. Of course it would be amazing to establish a career involving food, perhaps I need to move into bid management for a catering company… well it’s certainly food for thought (I make no apology for the pun). In terms of goals, I have many, but I guess the most significant being that I’d like to write a recipe book one day.
When I started out with Miss Friday’s Feast I had no defined objectives. It was more a case of exploring the world of food blogs that were already out there and I remember thinking to myself I could do this. So here we are. I guess a couple of years on you can sit back and laugh at how naive you can be sometimes. There are so many fantastic and passionate food bloggers out there. What chance did little old me have of being an internet sensation? But alas, I have come to realise this blogging malarkey is much more about sharing the joys of food and discovering new ingredients, rather than becoming the next Nigella. Now I’m not saying I’d object if Food Network approached me, just for the record I’d be ecstatic.
I hope you enjoy reading my blog posts (or ramblings) and trying out my recipes, as much as I enjoy sharing them. I hope to appeal to a wide audience by providing budget friendly recipes. Granted they will not always be super healthy, but I still seem to have kept myself fairly trim.
I love reading the comments people leave on my posts, it makes it all worth while and makes me feel content that actually I may have found something I’m good at. So thank you all for your wonderful support and kind words.
