Welcome to Joyful Food Journey, a blog about my home cooking and other food adventures! I used to consider myself a reluctant cook (still do sometimes) – it seems like such a lot of work for just one person, the meal planning, prepping, and cooking. I love the eating part though! However, a couple years ago I realized that if I wanted to eat good and/or healthy by my standards, then cook for myself I would have to do.
On a regular basis I try to keep things fairly simple, but tasty and healthy. Although occasionally I’ll get a wild hair and make something more complicated (usually for dinner parties). I also like to take really yummy (but not necessarily the healthiest) recipes and make simple/easy modifications to make them healthier.
So expect to see a variety of simple meals, healthy meals, some “wild hair” recipes, and tips and tricks when cooking. My cooking style tends to be a combination of following a recipe and “on the fly” but I’ll do my best to give measurements where I can. I always recommend to taste and adjust as you go. I’ll also be posting occasionally about my dining experiences out – I love trying new foods and restaurants.
So follow along, try the recipes, taste and adjust as you go, and let me know what you think! I love hearing and sharing ideas to make recipes better or different! Please also follow me on Instagram and Facebook and Pinterest.
