After a reading other people’s food blogs for a couple of years, I decided to create my own in early 2007. After several contenders, the alliterative Roasting Rambler won out and I’ve been writing about my experimentation with food ever since. I like trying new recipes, but I often get stuck on a particular type of food (pizza, oatmeal, french toast) and then I play around with variations for weeks until I’m either happy or so exasperated that I give up.
My friends and coworkers are my (usually) willing guinea pigs. This site is my record of successes and occasional failures (if I don’t like it, but others do, it may end up on the site). You can also find me occasionally writing a food column on InsiderIowa.com.
Towards the end of 2010, my cousin, Kelsey, joined Roasting Ramble as a contributor. I’ll let Kelsey introduce herself:
Hello readers and fellow bloggers. My name is Kelsey Bulat and we will be sharing this blog to provide you with double the recipes and double the passion for everything food.
I am a senior in culinary science at Iowa State University and a baker at a local farm-to-plate restaurant called The Café. My interest in cooking began at an early age spurred by my many family members gifted with a knack for cooking. Whether it be making homemade sausage and blueberry pancakes with Grandma Hoffman or using my Mom’s pie dough scraps to make my own individual sized custard pie, I’ve always found a way to get into the kitchen.
The recipes I will be posting on this blog will be a conglomeration of recipes I’ve developed along with some treasured family recipes too. Enjoy!
