“If it’s not in the scrapbook, it didn’t happen” says the kitchen magnet my friend Amanda gave me for Christmas several years back. This sums up this blog (and me!) in a nutshell. I’m Deb and I’m a 28-year-old young lady born and raised in Toronto who now lives in York Region in the GTA. I graduated from grad school 2 years ago with my MA, I now work in the food & beverage industry, and with Ate by Ate by my side I’m doing what I love to do: photographing, documenting, and writing about food. Ate by Ate is all about trying to make people hungry when they look at my food photos, and sharing my love of food and all things foodie-related through my scrapbook pages, photos, stories and posts. If you happen to drool over your desktops, laptops, or mobile devices, that’s a bonus.
Aside from food, I love fashion, jewelry, baking, flowers and gardens, reading murder mysteries, exploring Toronto’s every nook and cranny, and having enough lip gloss to fill a cargo ship. I love putting together outfits and accessorizing (I LOVE colour! oh, and polka dots, and argyle, and houndstooth…), and baking cupcakes and cookies. I’m a huge fan of Nancy Drew books and I’m absolutely in love with Joanne Fluke’s food murder mysteries among others. I’m a city girl at heart and it gives me joy exploring and photographing all of Toronto’s unique neighbourhoods and enclaves (I take photos of different gardens around the city as well as beautiful graffiti!), and I have dreams of going to art school, travelling, having a home and kitchen to call my very own and just enjoying life to its fullest.
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the blog.
With love, Deb ❤
