We are honored to accept the Liebster Award after being nominated by Simple Food 365! We are so thankful to be part of such a wonderful community of bloggers. The Liebster Award is one that is given to bloggers by bloggers in an effort to recognize the efforts of newer and smaller blogs. Upon researching, we’ve found it is given to bloggers with anywhere from under 200 to 3,000 followers. Basically, the way it works is the blogger who is nominated receives 10 questions to answer from the nominator. If the blogger accepts the award, he or she writes a post linking back to the nominator which includes the answers to the questions. In addition, the blogger accepting the award also chooses 5-10 more blogs to nominate and provides 10 new questions for those bloggers to answer as well. The bloggers being nominated must also be notified of the nomination.
As we graciously accept the award and thankful to Simple Food 365 for the nomination, we provide our answers to the questions given to us below:
What are your blogging goals?
Our blogging goals are to continue to share our recipes with others and demonstrate how easy it can be to make homemade food. We also hope to show how much fun cooking as a couple and as a family can be so that others can be compelled to cook together. In addition, we want to continue to connect with other bloggers all over the world and learn as much as we can in the process.
How do you take your coffee/tea?
I drink my coffee black while Greg takes his with almond milk. Oh, and we both ice them every day, yes, even in the winter. 🙂
What inspired your blog name?
We started by making cooking videos, which inspired the name Watch Learn Eat. The idea was that people could watch our cooking videos, learn how to make the recipes and then cook them at home and eat them.
What is your favorite regional food?
As Jersey Shore natives, my favorite regional food is boardwalk fries. Greg is going for the pork roll.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
I would have to say to fly. I used to have dreams as a kid that I could fly and it felt so real. I don’t know where I would fly to but the power would be most helpful to avoid shore traffic in the summer! 🙂 Greg would like to have super strength.
What is the one thing you wish that your readers knew about you?
I’d like to think that they could tell by my writing style, but I wish they would know how passionate I am about cooking and sharing my recipes with them. Greg feels the same about his photos. 🙂
What is one food that you love but wouldn’t admit to?
Well, this is a little wacky, but when I was a kid, I used to go to a friend’s house after school and mix Locatelli Pecorino Romano cheese with breadcrumbs and eat it. Plain. Yes, it was a little dry, but so delicious. Greg’s choice is Chef Boyardee Beef Ravioli but now that he is gluten-free, he won’t having that any time soon. Unless Chef Boyardee makes a gluten-free version..hint hint 😉
If you could have coffee with one person from the food world, who would it be and why?
Ok, so I’m going with Alton Brown. Not only does he have experience working with so many others in the food world, but his show Good Eats is one that Greg and I used to watch religiously when we were first married. Greg picks Jamie Oliver because of his English roots.
What is your favorite color?
Mine is red and Greg’s is blue so I guess together we are purple. 🙂
What is the one kitchen tool you couldn’t live without?
I didn’t even have to think about this. Definitely my food processor. Such a lifesaver, especially for all the hummus I eat! Greg is going with his chef’s knife collection.
