Hola and welcome to Girl Plus Food! I’m Carmen… the “Girl” on this blog.
It’s all personal… GirlPlusFood.com is a food blog, created & maintained by me, Carmen Sakurai. This is where I document the recipes I’ve tried and love… and I still refer back to this blog for ideas and help when I need it! I don’t have thousands of posts yet, but just you wait, my kid and I have appetites that rival those of starving, wild animals!!!
My iPhone camera… makes an appearance whenever there’s pretty food… and good food (that may not look all that pretty) on the table. So there are NO professional food pix on this blog. There’s really no point in calling me out on exposures and filters and angles and light… because I don’t *get* photography stuff like that.
Heads-Up: You should know… I’m not a health blogger, clean eater, nor am I familiar with ingredients that “shouldn’t” be in certain products. I made some yummy smoothies a few times, and I won’t lie… those events were WILDLY celebrated simply because fruit and vegetables were involved. I’ve never counted calories, purchased anything low-fat, low-sodium, or sugar-free… and I have no idea what gluten-free is… so keep that in mind.
Where I get the recipes… most recipes come from cookbooks, magazines, adapted from my favorite food bloggers, and Pinterest… but some are totally made up. LOL. I make it a point to attribute the source whenever possible.
