I entered the blogging world in 2006 when I decided, on a whim, to become an au pair in Germany. It seemed the easiest way to update my family with the adventures, troubles, and excitement that filled my daily life for more than a year. As I look back, I LOVE having the record of what I did, how I felt, and the overwhelming sense of accomplishment that I have about that time.

Flash forward to November 2010, when my sister gave me bon appétit for my birthday, and then a couple of months later to January 2011 when the first issue arrived – another blog idea was born. I have always been in love with food and cooking and I thought blogging would be the best way to chronicle another year of (culinary) adventures.  Though this time it’s focused on preparing recipes from the magazine along with other dishes and the travels & stories that inspired them.

Welcome to The Bon Appétit Diaries!

I’m emily: I love food. I love to travel. I love to blog about both.
