WELCOME to cravingthis!
My name is Ruby –
I thought about starting my blog years ago. I kept thinking of reasons why I couldn’t or shouldn’t: too many food blogs, what would I say, and how would I navigate all that tech stuff. HTML and CSS cause my eyes to glaze over!
Well, here I am! (Thanks D for introducing me to WordPress).
I am a self-taught and passionate baker who also loves to cook and experiment with new recipes and ingredients. H and I are foodies and we’re more than happy to share what’s on our plates, whether at home or when dining out. I’m also very persistent in perfecting a recipe before posting here. I will always tell you where I went wrong!
Would you like to know what I really crave? Cake! I can forgo breakfast, lunch or dinner for a divine piece of cake. Practically any kind will do: dark chocolate, lemon, coconut, vanilla, mocha, strawberry, carrot or tiramisu (I could go on)! As I’m writing this, yes, I am eating a decadent slice of moist coconut cake, layered with tangy lemon curd and frosted with Italian Meringue buttercream! Are you with me??
I also believe in “balance,” so you’ll see posts with a healthier attitude, along with my favorite products.
I’ve included food, product and service reviews, as well as my tried/true/tasted/tested tips and tricks! Wow, that was a mouthful … I mean of cake :)
My other passion is photography. It all started with my obsession of taking photos of food. First my baking and cooking creations, and then whenever we dined out. H knew the procedure quite well. He would position the food, let me take a few shots (only 20 or so), and only then could we eat. I don’t need to tell fellow foodies about the stares we received!
If you’ve read this far, thank you! Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you crave, or if you find a product, service or restaurant that you have rave reviews about.
I appreciate you stopping by! I hope you’ll visit again.
