Hello and welcome to Beezer’s Bites! I began snapping photos of my (very limited) cooking during my time in Japan as a way of proving to my loved ones that I was eating and would survive. When I returned to the U.S. the habit continued and I snapped photos of nearly everything I made. While I took care with my amateur photography in general, you’ll notice my early food photos were tragic. I was still so astonished when things turned out well (or even edible – see: “quesadilla incident“) that I only wanted proof of success.
Eventually, though, I enjoyed making my own meals more. I also had a very hungry canuck to cook for – and to learn cooking from – and I started pushing myself to try new things. My food photography started improving as I took more care in my cooking, and eventually it all showed up here. I hope you enjoy what you see and please feel free comment about recipes or techniques – I’m still learning!
recently moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia two years ago (wow, time flies!) to pursue my master’s degree in Astronomy. After having been out of school for 5 years, it’s an understatement to say my new program is a challenge, haha, but I’m thoroughly enjoying my research! Unfortunately any graduate student will tell you free time and grocery $$ is very hard to come by – we aren’t known for living off of ramen (oh, excuse me, “Mr. Noodles” ) for nothing – but making unprocessed, delicious food is still a high priority for me. My goal is to share at least one recipe a week, but please forgive me if I fall behind. I realize now I haven’t had time to post since this past summer and it’s really made me think about what I want to do with Beezer’s Bites. I definitely won’t delete the site; I use the archive myself almost on a weekly basis for mobile recipes and on-the-go grocery lists… but I wasn’t sure if I should formally “retire”.
For now, I’m just going to hope I’ll find the time at some point to update you with the recipes that have been added to my repertoire. To be honest, I’m not cooking/baking nearly as often and have settled into making working woman’s meals of salads, soups, and packable fruit every day. Not much variety, but relatively fresh and can be pulled off last minute. There are definitely a few highlight dishes I’ve made since last summer, though, and I really hope one day they’ll find their way onto here. Maybe I’ll try to catch up this summer in between thesis drafts.
