The Story Behind LoveThatFood
LoveThatFood may well have been in its earliest stages long before the internet was even invented. I can remember being creative with food when I was very young, and experimenting with and preparing all kinds of foods for friends and family as the years continued. As my passion for experimenting with recipes grew, I struggled with trying to find ways of keeping my hundreds of recipes organized. From recipe boxes, to books, to binders and finally computer files, my recipes were all over the place. Creating this website has not only provided me with a way to share my favorite recipes, it provides me with a place to organize and easily find them!
Every recipe on this website has been tested and approved by me and others as a recipe "worth repeating." I have chosen recipes that are fairly simple to make and have that "Mmm!" factor. Recipes on this website come from a variety of sources. Many have been created by me over time by trial and error and experimentation. Other recipes were passed down through my family, starting with my Grandma, Bonnie, who had some simple yet amazing recipes that likely had passed down to her from previous generations. Some recipes come from books and hundreds of recipes my mother had for decades meticulously clipped from newspapers or received from friends and acquaintances and stored in various binders. I'm sure my mother had sincere intentions to try each recipe, but her passion for collecting and organizing these recipes must have surpassed the time she had to prepare them all. Though she didn't know it at the time, those many hours of carefully reviewing and collecting recipes were not in vain, for I am now honored to help her legacy live on by sharing some of those recipes on this website.
Another one of my hobbies is photography, so every photo on this website is a genuine photo of the food I prepared, which is designed to give you a true preview of how each recipe will look once prepared.
