Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I'm Emily.  I love food, and I love saving money--hence my desire to find recipes that you can make on a tiny budget that still taste delicious.  There's something so satisfying about making a meal that your husband raves about and then seeing his face when you tell him you made it for approximately 19 cents a serving.  That look--the one that says he thinks you're the grocery queen--is priceless.  But I love more than just food.  I love reading books with my husband, singing along to my Pandora stations as I cook, going on walks, playing at the park with my little boy, making homemade ice cream, reading through old journals, visiting my neighbors, and seeing just how blessed I truly am.

When I was thinking of a name for this blog, I decided on Food is a Blessing because it really is a blessing.  Food is amazing and wonderful, and we all need it.  And we have so many options!  We don't have to eat blah-flavored mush every day.  There's a giant buffet table, so to speak, of options.  And don't picture Golden Corral.  Picture the midnight buffet on a cruise ship.  It's incredible how wonderful food is.

I started this blog mainly because I wanted a way to organize my recipes for myself.  I felt like I was always losing my little recipe cards or forgetting changes I made to recipes in cookbooks.  So I figured, hey, if I put them on the internet, they'll never get lost!  So here we are.  It's been a year, and I've already expanded my recipe horizons so much.  I feel like an actual cook now, and that feels pretty fabulous.  Stick around, and hopefully you'll find some recipes you love just as much as I do.


  1. I love that I know you. You are SO awesome!
