Today’s Blogger Guest Post for The Holiday Project: Liz from It’s Unbeweavable  [I’ve followed Liz’s blog for a while now. It’s so inspiring, fun, and encouraging to read. She’s real. She’s honest. It’s amazing! So happy to have her on Life Tastes Like Food today!] ******************************************************************************************* {photo via} Hi there! I’m Liz, and I am honored to be a part of this project.  I’ve blogged over at It’s Unbeweavable for the past three years, and am transitioning my blog from fashion to fitness based, because I’m a firm believer that as you grow and change, so should your blog. By the time you read this, I will (fingers crossed) be a certified personal trainer. Woo! Why fitness?  Last year, I lost 100 pounds.  It still feels odd saying that.  I’ll spare you the back story, but as anyone who has lost any amount of weight knows, maintenance is actually harder [Continue Reading…]

Strawberry Guava Crisp

Today’s Reader Guest Post for The Holiday Project: Jenna from Santa Barbara, California [Jenna and I go way back. Our shared love of food goes way back. And her story about creating this guest post makes me smile, laugh, and miss her all at the same time! Thanks, Jenna!] ************************************************************* Hi, my name is Jenna and I am a legal assistant living in Santa Barbara.  I love baking, being in the water, and trying new things, but mostly I love to eat. And read about eating, which is why I love Life Tastes Like Food! When Steph asked me to write a post for her blog, I was so excited to share something with her foodie followers. And then, two seconds later, I started worrying. I wracked my brain for my most foolproof recipe so I wouldn’t embarrass myself in front of you guys. Fruit crisps are about as foolproof [Continue Reading…]

Drive, Just Drive

“The big lesson in life, baby, is never be scared of anyone or anything.” – Frank Sinatra When I was at the Foodbuzz Food Blogger Festival, the Saturday morning panel was a wonderful way to start the day. Kath, Sarah, Joy, Tracy, and Jessica were such amazing panelists and really opened up my eyes even more to the world of food blogging. Before this festival, I was pretty much on my own. When I first started my blog, I was the only blogger I knew. Slowly through this experience, I have met many other bloggers and it has been such a fun adventure. Really, it was quite a random choice and to this day I can’t really explain why I started a food blog. Actually, yes, I can. I knew I needed a hobby and I knew it needed to be something that I actually enjoyed and wouldn’t wind up [Continue Reading…]

The Holiday Project

  I am so so so so so excited to announce a seasonal series that will be starting on Life Tastes Like Food tomorrow. Sometimes, my life is boring. Other people are much more interesting than I am. So I was trying to think of a way to showcase to you all of the wonderful happenings that are going on in people’s lives. And since it’s the holiday season, I see no better way to celebrate it than to share a little something among friends, strangers, readers, bloggers, family, co-workers, peers, and…everyone, really. This project is called The Holiday Project. Each week throughout this holiday season, I will be posting two guest posts on my blog. One will be from a reader (who doesn’t have a blog) and one will be from a blogger! You will see the holiday banner (pictured at the top of this post) at the beginning [Continue Reading…]

Bloggers Day of Silence for Japan

Tomorrow, I will be participating in the Bloggers Day of Silence for Japan and will not be posting anything to my blog. Along with a mass of other bloggers from all over the world, we are taking a day of silence in order to pay respects to the devastation and tragedy that has hit Japan and the victims of this disaster. We all know what’s going on over there through the news and whatnot, but it doesn’t even come close to what the citizens of Japan are experiencing first hand. Ever Ours and Utterly Engaged have taking huge steps to organize this day and launch For Japan With Love, and I think it’s wonderful what they are doing! They have handpicked ShelterBox to donate to since they are already in Japan and were one of the first organizations to be asked by Japan to help. Please pass this message on [Continue Reading…]
