Q: What is “Easy Gourmet”?
A: Easy Gourmet is I am a Food Blog’s first cookbook! It’s full of fun, easy recipes that have that special “I am a Food Blog” touch. It’s out in bookstores and available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million and Indie Bound.
Q: What’s your cooking style/food philosophy?
A: Steph – I like simple, delicious, honest food. Most of my recipes are straight-forward and don’t have fussy ingredients. That being said, LOVE combining different foods together. Some very I am a Food Blog recipes are: Crab Rangoon Deviled Eggs, Banh Mi Tacos, Okonomiyaki Burgers, and Mac and Cheese Pie. I use a lot of Asian flavors, partially due to nostalgia and partially because they are just so darn delicious.
A: Mike – trashy, drunk food that is obviously too messy to eat but you’re gonna do it anyway because it’s JUST that good. Also I like cooking recipes that are incredibly complex: you know the kind where you have to go to six different grocery stores, use all of the pots and and pans, and take 70-100 hours to make.
Q: Can I use your images and recipes on my site?
A: We work really hard to provide unique content. All of the content and images are copyrighted, which means you need permission to use them.
