It’s Wednesday and that means I am bringing you another edition of “Bites with Bloggers!” Today I am featuring another talented blogger, Sarah of Sarah Eats Austin.
Sarah is just a teenager and yet is making her mark in the blogging world! She is passionate about food and that comes out in her recipes and blog. In fact her blog was just listed as honorable mention for the Austin Chronicle’s Top 10 Austin Food Blogs for 2012! Quite impressive for someone who has only been blogging for a year!
I hope you’ll join me today to get to know Sarah better (and I hope to get to know her better in person soon)! Be sure and show her some blogger love and check out her blog, Sarah Eats Austin (she just posted a recipe for Chocolate Sin Cake that looks IN.SANE!) and follow along with her as she grows and tackles the Austin one bite at a time and takes on the food blogging world! 🙂
Hello everyone! I’m Sarah from Sarah Eats Austin. Looking like a creeper in my apron and boots! I post about my food life here in Austin. Mostly recipes consisting of sugary sweet deliciousness, but a few savory recipes as well and restaurant reviews. I started this blog when I first started going to eat out with my dad every week, and wanted to have a “name” here in Austin. I wanted to be taken seriously and have people talk to me when I talked to them, instead of my dad. I wanted an opinion like Anthony Bourdain. Ha, honestly I never even dreamed anyone would ever read my blog. Anyway, along the line as my life started getting crazier and we stopped eating out as much, I started posting recipes of all the great confections I made.
A typical day for me usually starts out waking up, eating breakfast, working out and then either going to class, going to work, or cooking. Pretty much when I get my work schedule every week I look for days off to plan out when I can cook next! Don’t judge, I don’t have a life, so I cook. What else do you need?
A lot of my knowledge on how to cook and bake comes from my family. All of them are amazing cooks and just growing up watching them has taught me so much. Plus the hours and hours of time I spend reading recipes, watching food network shows, and learning the latest tips and tricks has definitely helped me learn!
famous chef past or present, who would you choose?
One person I wish I could cook with would have to be Anthony Bourdain. I love the way he tells everything the way it is and doesn’t try to sugarcoat it. He tells of the good the bad and the disgusting. Watching the ending of every No Reservations show where he cooks with a family or a bunch of friends is one of the main reasons I respect this guy. That right there is traditional food and family gathering, it’s the sort of thing I dream about doing with my family and friends someday, and I would love to do that with Anthony himself. As much as I love to cook and eat food itself, the best part is sharing it with others and bringing joy to others with my food.
What recipe(s) on your blog are your favorites?
My favorite recipe on my blog is, as of right now, my Tres Leches Cake with Dulce De Leche. This cake is everything I love in a dessert. Cold, creamy, sweet, cakey, gooey… It covers it all!
What recipe(s) on your blog are your reader’s
My most successful/viewed recipes on my blog is by a long shot my Butterbeer Cupcakes. These are absolutely delicious and of course the Harry Potter reference makes these cupcakes that much greater.
so what are your favorite bands/artists to listen too?
favorite cooking and non-cooking shows?
And thank you Heather so much for letting me do this guest post!
