Welcome to the fresh new look of Cooking with Ruthie!
There’s been a bit of tiding up going on around this little space… now it’s faster, cleaner, and leaner (or something like that.)
Today, we’re part of a Getting to Know blog hop and it’s a fun way for you to get to know me and some of my fellow contributors over at Or so she says…
What inspired you to start your blog (or shop?)
I grew up in the kitchen cooking with my Mom and Gram. From both of them, I developed a love of cooking and of sharing recipes. Gram had a cooking show in the 60’s which inspired my blog, it’s been wonderful to carry on a piece of her legacy.
What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about blogging?
I love the food photography- I didn’t think I would develope a love for it as much as I have. My least favorite part of blogging?? Hmmm… I guess it would be entering an actual recipes into a post; I have to reread them several times and I still make a ton of mistakes! UGH. *luckily I get clued by a reader pretty quickly and fix it
