I am not a foodie, I don’t even really like food… I really just eat so that I don’t die. My friends make fun of me because I’m what they call a “plain eater”, meaning I don’t like to venture too far out of my comfort zone and normally whatever I order has special instructions. Only recently has that mindset changed and the catalyst in all of that is my wife. My wife enjoys good food and can appreciate the taste of certain things that I just can’t, but in turn I get dragged to all these random restaurants that I would never even consider going to… and some of them aren’t that bad.
I decided to start this site as a way to follow my adventure into the world of non-picky eating. I’ve already ventured way out of my comfort zone as my wife and I have been together for almost 12 years now, but we’re still trying things I never thought I would try, making things I never thought I would make and actually starting to take an interest in food in general. So we’ll see how it goes…
You’ll find restaurant reviews, tips on making food at home, and anything else related to food (and sometimes drinks) that I find time to write about. What you won’t find on this site are quality photos of the food that I eat, unless it’s something we made at home. A lot of these food blogs have really well lit, nicely composed photos of the food they eat at these restaurants, but I refuse to take my DSLR, or even use my phone flash, at a restaurant for the sake of a nice photo. I get super annoyed by people using their flash to take photos of their food in restaurants, so I’m not going to do that to other people. So I apologize for not having the greatest imagery to go with the posts, but it’s not that hard to track down better pics of most of this food.
If you’ve got some incredible food (or drink) related product that you would like me to check out and write about, or you own a restaurant in the Chicagoland area that you want me to try, feel free to email me at treding [at] gmail dot com.
I can’t promise that I’ll like your food/drink, but I can promise that I will be 100% honest in what I write. So if you’re not comfortable with the fact that I may not enjoy what you offer, then this isn’t the site for you.
