Welcome my friends to the NEW Hungry Food Love. Oh, but please don’t be scared by the word new, I am still the same Melissa that started this blog almost 4 years ago. What has evolved and grown is my passion. As you may know, I am now a mom of two precious kiddos and the more I spend time with them, the more I love being their mom, and all that comes with motherhood. I have found an incredible joy by being a mom and being part of my kids’ life. It is a wonderful adventure that I want to share with you through new content besides food.
As you can see, the homepage looks a little different. We now have three new sections:
Even though I am not crafty, I do enjoy trying fun craft ideas as a way to build rich experiences with my daughter. I will be writing about cool ideas and activities that our contributor Carolina Llinas from the blog Nuestro Mundo Creativo has created. All of the crafts will all have a foodie theme and/or will utilize ingredients that can be found in the kitchen. So if you are not crafty either but would like to get simple and creative ideas, then this section is for you.
This is where I will bring you into our family’s adventures. I will share about family fun, parenting, raising multicultural children, and being a woman. There will be travel pieces, possibly fashion ones, and random but hopefully helpful posts about my experience as a mom. I actually have a completely separate Instagram account where I share about our life outside of food. Here is the food Instagram account and here is our family one follow our adventures there too.
One of the things I love the most about reading other blogs is learning about cool new things out there. I love to get ideas for great finds to buy, which is why I created this section to share with you the things we love too. I plan to share a monthly round up of my favorite things, like this one post about cake stands. Any other theme or topic you would like us to work on? Cristalia Garcia from the blog Cheers Cristalia, will be compiling the great finds we feature and creating the gorgeous graphics behind this section.
These three new sections are the main additions to the blog, but don’t you worry, recipes will remain strong and I even may cook easy and fun dishes to make with kids too. Little L is has been asking more and more to help me cook, and I want her to learn and to be safe and confident in the kitchen. Here is the first recipe we cooked together.
You may have also noticed some previous sections missing, but one that is still part of the blog is Giving Back, as it has always been an incredibly important part of my life and motto.
So, what do you think?
I hope that this change is one that you enjoy too. It’s the maternal side in me that has been wanting to expand the type of content I share on this little space of the web. How does it all sound? Are you a mom too? Are there kids in your life for whom this content may also be helpful to you too? Maybe you know someone else who will enjoy the additional content? I sure hope so and I would love to hear what you think.
Thanks for letting me know and for being here!
