Hello hello! Welcome to my blog! My name is Jessie. I’m a travel-obsessed foodie who loves the little things in life like curling up with a good book and a steaming cup of tea. If I were to choose 3 words to describe myself they would be: sweet, quirky and adventurous. My friends might argue that “optimistic-to-a-fault” should be in that list but hey, it’s my blog so I get to choose!
I think the most interesting thing you should know about me is that I’m a Canadian currently living in rural Japan, in a small city named Fukui. I love my job and I absolutely, positively adore Japan. I am doing my best to thrive in this strange and confusing world!
My new years resolution is to be more adventurous in the kitchen, with a goal of cooking or baking at least one new recipe a week. Rather than bombing my poor facebook with millions of photos of food and annoying people (despite how delicious I think each photo looks!) I figured it was about time this foodie started a blog. A place where I can post successful recipes, while simultaneously documenting my travels and reflecting on life here in Japan.
That’s it for now! Hope my blog leaves you feeling as happy as a bird with a french fry!
