One thing I love about this Blogger Spotlight series is featuring bloggers that may not necessarily be food bloggers, but they do have food and recipes on their blog. This week’s spotlight is one such blogger! If you enjoy crafting alongside cooking, this is a great blog for you to check out!

 

Pamela is the author of the crafty, foody blog: Frenchknots. She lives in Utah with her husband and three sons. Her favorite holiday is Valentine’s Day (yes, more than Christmas!!) and she loves Sunday dinner around the table. When Pamela isn’t cooking with her sons, she is quilting, crafting, reading and or running; not in that order or all at the same time.

What inspired you to first start writing your blog?

I was first inspired to start blogging, by my neighbor Marie (Make and Takes)she suggested putting my creativity into a blog.

What kinds of posts are your favorite to write? What do your readers seem to like the most?

I love to blog about food. Every Wednesday, I do a Mid Week Munchies post and I share a recipe of something I recently made that was super yummy.

Do you plan a weekly menu? If so, what inspires your menu?

I plan a weekly menu every Sunday. I stay inspired by creating meals around foods in season, holidays and traditional Sunday dinners.

What is your favorite kind of food to make?

Treats, yummy, yummy treats.

What is your favorite recipe posted on your blog?

Hot Potato Salad. It is not only mouth watering but a totally crowd pleaser.

What kind of food did you eat growing up? Do you cook the same kinds of things today?

I cook a lot of the same meals I grew up on. My Mom was a wonderful cook and I am always calling her saying, “Remember this dish, or that dish?” “Can I get the recipe, I want to make it for dinner!”

When you really want to cheat, what do you eat?

I love cheese fries. In my town there is a hamburger joint that has hands down the Best Cheese Fries.

If you could travel anywhere in the world – just for the food – where would you go?

I already went: Italy!!! On my husband and I’s honeymoon. I still remember my first slice of margarita pizza. It was heaven.

Take us through a typical day of eating in your house.

I love brunch….so I always eat around 11 am. Eggs and toast, Omelets, Coffee Cake and juice. Lunch is around 1-2 and I love a turkey sandwich with avocado. Dinner is served around 6:30 – 7 and I love a simple main dish with a few veggies on the side and bread.

What is your best tip for saving money on groceries?

Shop the local ads and try and buy fruits and veggies in season, much cheaper.


What is your best tip to becoming a successful blogger?

Share your best recipes, I don’t like to be stingy. When I have a great recipe I want everyone to enjoy it. When people make your recipes and love it, you gain a lot of respect and gain loyal followers.
