About & Working With Me

If we must eat, it must never simply “fine” but exquisite.

A Byte of Life is a food and lifestyle blog focused on delicious, simple meals and balanced living. Whatever your lifestyle, food preferences/allergies are, this blog is aimed at helping equip you to live the life you desire to life by putting the “how” into back into life by delivering bite sized inspiration to nurture your body and soul.

I believe…
…that EACH meal should be something special to look forward to
…that cooking doesn’t have to be hard, but it does have to be delicious
…that there shouldn’t be recipes, only guidelines for personalization
…anyone can cook with the right ingredients and instructions 
…that food allergies/preferences shouldn’t limit your food experience

Hey It’s Okay… 

…that your food gets cold because you’re photographing it
…that you get so excited about a new recipe that you fall over
…that you think you can’t cook… that can be cured
…to get so excited about a new recipe that you HAVE to go cook it asap… even if it’s eggplant Parmesan and you found the recipe at 8am

This blog came about from a combination of my passion for cooking, laziness, and living alone. I found myself cooking up meals that were not only tasty, easy to assemble out of my pantry, but also looked nice. I often wished that there was someone there to share the beauty and delectable flavors with. So, I started uploading my photos to Facebook so I could feel like my friends were enjoying my meal with me.

After countless comments of “WHAT IS THAT AMAZING LOOKING MEAL” (no joke there…all caps) I started including the ingredients of the meal. That sprouted into starting a food blog laced with little lessons I’m learning along the way which I’ve labeled “bytes”. You might be wondering why the heck I’m spelling that word incorrectly. Well, that’s a shout out to my tech geeks…of which I must admit I am one. A “byte” is a piece that makes up a whole…so… the “bytes” on this blog are meant to be small digestible bits of inspiration and information to help ground, inspire, remind, encourage, and motivate you to live the life that you truly desire.

    1. Thank you for the kind words!! I’m focusing more and more on gluten-free recipes and many of the recipes in the blog have a note that you can use a gluten-free flour option. The kind that I like best is Bob’s Red Mill, it’s great!! If you go to the main page of the blog, there is a bar for “Ingredient Search” on the right hand side, second item down. You can enter anything you’d like in there and it cross references all the recipes by tag. You can also click on words in the word cloud to see the recipes associated with them.

      I’ll post more gluten-free recipes soon! Come back and visit!!
