Hello and welcome to Brownies and Zucchini! My name is Kelly, I’m the person behind these words, and I am a picky eater.
This blog is all about diversifying my meals. My goal is to try new foods and talk about them on this blog. Expect lots of delicious foods – Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner- and especially Dessert!
I’m hoping that this blog will be a way for me to learn to try new foods. My meals tend to be the same, or very similar, day after day and by adding new foods into the mix, I’m hoping to be more excited about cooking and eating! Not to mention, there are many nutritious elements that are lacking in my current diet. (Lets just say, I could live off of bagels and pasta.) Over the past two years that I’ve been writing this blog, I’ve found that I really enjoy writing about food, so I’ve found myself actually WANTING to make new and different foods. This is definitely a step in the right direction!
These fun new meals that I make come from some of my favorite foodie blogs, as well as the small array of cookbooks that I own. Out of respect to those lovely people, I will not be posting recipes that are not mine on the blog. These people worked hard on their recipes and have wonderful blogs themselves that you should visit for yourself while you check out the delicious recipe that I made.
I will also be sharing with your some of the restaurants that I eat at. These will be not only some of my favorites in Madison, WI (where I live) but also in other cities that I visit for work and for fun. Diversifying my meals includes going to different restaurants and eating different meals at restaurants as well!
Other non-food related things you might see include:
We live in beautiful Madison, WI with one cat and one dog.
Olive, our pug, is almost 5, and was given to me by The Husband as a surprise for Christmas in 2007. (He really is the best at surprises.)
Our cat, Sasha (aka Miss Kitty) is from a local animal shelter. We got her in 2005 and she was a stray so we don’t know her exact age but she is a a young at heart adult. She is also the most social cat that I know, and luckily gets along well with Olive.
(You’ll see these furry friends a lot in my Wordless Wednesday posts.)
You will also probably hear about my experiences/experiments/fun with yoga and Pilates…..and I just started running….I’ve run a 8K, and a 5K! I’m slightly injury prone, so my running hasn’t been super consistant but I think I’ve passed the Couch to 5K program – and that is a huge accomplishment for someone who doesn’t love running! I get lots of encouragement and inspiration in my running journey from my Twitter friends, and I definitely would not be where I am today without them!
My “someday” goal is to get one of those pretty Run Disney metals…we’ll see if that ever comes to fruition…
