Why did I start this blog?
Well, I have always wanted to write one, but I never thought I had anything important enough to say. After all, my regular every day life isn't all that interesting. I've always liked cooking, baking and experimenting in the kitchen, and I have often gotten very positive feedback. Lately with my increased use of Instagram and experimentation with healthy eating, I have had more and more people asking me for my recipes. So I decided to start a food blog.
Why "The Little Marinade"?
The title of my blog is obviously an homage to my favorite fairy tale, The Little Mermaid, and while I do love the Disney version of the story, the original Hans Christian Andersen is the best. I have always identified with the Little Mermaid wanting to explore a new world, fall in love and find happiness. For me, clean eating is a new world to explore, and in the end, like Ariel, I will have a completely new body when my journey is complete.
The title for this blog also combines two of my loves: cooking and literature. As I said in the "Meet Jennifer" section, I graduated with a B.A. in English Literature. I am an avid reader and writer. I am even working on my own novel, a crime drama. Heck maybe I'll even write my own cookbook in a few years!
