about: food. photos. blogging.

i will be surprised if anyone is still following this blog - considering the fact that my last two posts were in december and then in may. but, if you are... know that i have not forsaken writing about or taking photos of food. i have merely redirected my food-loving energy to other mediums.

the first: i thoroughly enjoy taking photos & writing short captions on my instagram (@joey_arm_strong).

the second: i spend a few hours each week dedicated to blogging for the dirty apron, my place of work, at
please do follow my writing there, as we share recipes, talk about food, and share about what's going on at the dirty apron delicatessen & cooking school.
