About Food Meanderings

I’m Terri, a contest winning competitive home cook and baker and hobby cake decorator. I’m inspired by and enjoy the challenge of developing recipes for cooking competitions because I really have to push myself to be creative. I love all things food and spend much of my spare time thinking about food, cooking food, taking photos of food, writing about food, reading about food, making art with food and sharing my love of food. I also tend to ramble on about food. That’s why I started this blog.
