Happy Friday! Today’s featured foodie is Sabrina from Rhodey Girl Tests. Many of you may already know Sabrina’s blog for its healthy and delicious recipes and entertaining ideas. I was excited to meet her at the Nature’s Pride booth at the Foodbuzz Festival where she cooked up her winning egg white frittata muffins. She was as sweet and energetic as she comes across online. Thanks for being featured this week, Sabrina!
How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging since October 2007, but I did not start sharing my recipes until the last year or so. At first I was writing about anything and everything. Here is my very first post (http://rhodeygirltests.com/2007/10/23/champagne-wishes-and-caviar-dreams/) … not related to my passion for cooking and hosting parties at all!
What is your favorite thing about blogging? Least favorite?
I absolutely love the community that has formed in the healthy living realm. I have made some really great friendships that I know would continue even without blogs. I also get great satisfaction when someone emails me to let me know they have tried one of my recipes and they loved it. They always feel really good about it, and that makes me feel good.
I hate that I sometimes sit at my computer for two hours preparing a post when I could be spending precious time with my husband. I suppose it is all about balance though, and I try to achieve that balance by only blogging during the week and keeping weekends to family time.
What has been your most fun blog post to write?
Even though my blog is all about food, I share a lot of love too. My absolutely favorite post was writing the story of how PB proposed, right after he did it! (http://rhodeygirltests.com/2008/05/02/engaged/) I still smile thinking about it. As far as the rest, I really enjoy all of the menu posts. I have a slight obsession with creating menus and lists.

Where do you see your blog this time next year?
By next year I hope to begin my family with my husband and share recipes that are easy for a very pregnant woman to prepare ;). I do hope that the success of my blog allows me to be involved in another fun foodie activity… but that is a secret for now!
Is there anything else about your blogging experience you would like to share?
A piece of advice for other bloggers… Write for yourself and write what you are passionate about. The rest will come with time!
Thank you for this opportunity, Meghan!
