Hello, and welcome to my food blog! My name is Mary, and I’m a bean counter by day, food blogger by night. Food is my passion, my reason for being, and like any good child, I blame it on my parents.
Fervent Foodie was birthed May 25, 2010. (Check out my 5th-year and 6th year anniversary posts!) Back then, I was 25 and living in Akron, Ohio, in a house I’d bought because, well, that’s what I’d thought I was supposed to do. I spent my first summer there in the backyard, mulching and weeding like a good homeowner. I filled the rooms with second-hand furniture, replaced the water heater, and worried endlessly about that weird clicking noise the fridge made. But after a year or so, it lost its luster. I was bored. And that, my friends, is when I decided to start a food blog.
I named the blog Fervent Foodie because I love food, I can be a little intense, and I love alliteration. *dusts hands off*
Since then, I moved from Akron to Charlotte to Columbus. Through it all, this blog remains my creative space to share anything and everything food related, including recipes, cooking disasters, food stories, and restaurant reviews. I love collaborating with local businesses and publications! Please check out my work with me page.
